NED v POR (was Confirmed)

73rd minute.. this game is a farce. A fist fight almost broke out on the pitch.
Where the hell is FIFA? The ref just carded the POR goaltender while a POR player WAS DOWN IN THE BOX. This is absolutely rediculous.

77th minute... 16 yellow cards.

What the hell? Cocu earned that card, not Deco

(sorry to anyone who actually reads via RSS.. this suddenly became a live blogging)

Holy SAVE by Ricardo!

85: In answer to a question asked by the TV commentators; why would you throw Ruud into a game where yellow is raining down like candy at a parade?

87: Kuyt must be pulled; there is no excuse to have such an inexperienced player in a key spot at this point.
I retract my initial response to the commentators; Ruud should appear..

89: About time Kuyt turned for a shot.

90: That was NED's last, best chance, blown by Kuyt. Normally, not a great attempt like that is awesome to see. In the 90th, down by 1, it's essential. Someone with 21 caps should make that.

90+5: And the cards continue to fly. 16 cards, ties the record for most in one game.

90+7:  NED lose; POR are thru to face England. A great match ruined by terrible, awful officiating.
