World Cup Woes

the last two days of world cup action have seen two very unfortunate outcomes. netherlands lost yesterday to portugal in a terribly officiated match. 16 yellow cards and 4 reds. the match official did not keep the game under control and netherlands paid dearly for it. from where i sat they controlled the game and deserved to advance with the win. the netherlands coach did not do the team any favors by leaving on the bench one of the worlds best strikers in rudd van nistleroy.

the other great tradgedy was today when australia was knocked out by italy. australia dominated the game and deserved the win. italy won by a penalty kick in the last minute. the aussies deserved more.
