Obviously, that was a great game and a very good effort made by the Korean team. Even more obvious, however, was the BLATANTLY one-sided reffing. Many petty fouls were called against Korea, while more conspicuous fouls committed by Uruguay were completely disregarded. Wolfgang Stark has a history of bad reffing including the notoriously controversial Chile-Argentina semi-final game during the 2007 U-20 World Cup.

i don't see it. the ref didn't call a fairly obvious Korean handball in the penalty area and the final numbers look pretty even outside of the Yellow Cards. i thought the ref let things go in both directions evenly. perhaps Uruguay was able to "sell" their fouls a bit better.

if the US can manage a win today, the back line is going to have its hands full with Uruguay's attacking players. i don't think Bornstein can be run back out there for that one, though I guess we'll see how he does today.

speaking of which, let's go USA!!!

Great second goal by Suarez. IMO, one of the best shots of the tournament.
