Group of 16, day 2

What is going on with England? 1 – 0 over Ecuador, and only based on a Beckham free kick? That’s twice in this World Cup! England is playing so far below their talent, it’s not even funny.

England will now play Portugal in the quarter finals after Portugal beat the Netherlands 1 – 0, but sadly the score wasn’t the story. The story was the insane penalties. 16 yellow cards, 4 reds. This tied a record for the most cards issued in a game. The end of the second half was a mad house as the cards were flying so fast you couldn’t even focus on what was causing them. The question is:were they all deserved or was the ref insane? A lot fo the cards I agreed with, but it still seemed to be totally out of control.
