I only pay attention to soccer at WC time too - I get off on the intensity and vibe passion of it all :)
Indeed it was outrageous, I was hugely dissapointed in my team when that happened. That should've been a red card. Worst piece of soccer I've seen by the Dutch team ever.
But other than that, we didn't do much wrong. Still we got 9 other yellow cards, on the contrary to Spain, who only got 1. Strange to say the least.
Again, also strange how the WC finale stirred me up so bad, I usually hate soccer.
