when rooney made the accidental tackle on cavalhio the ref was not going to book him its only when ronaldo rushed in to the ref raising his hand suggetsting to the ref that he should send him off that rooney lost his top and pushed ronaldo and thats when the ref produced his red card. now that is very unsporting of ronaldo to do that to his own team mate
how would rooney ever forgive him for terminating his world cup dream
if its me i ll never speak to him again
That's what is called psychological warfare in soccer. Christiano knew that Rooney will easily lose his top and he successfully played on that. Don't blame Christiano, his mission was to makesure that he unsettles England by hook or crook. It was childish of Rooney and I would not try to exonarate him from that mistake. The only issue is how will they play together at ManU? I suspect Christiano will move on to Madrid.

what a load of crap. The ref made a huge mistake. ok Rooney stood on someones balls, but it was clear to see it was acceint. there was no intent, no looking at the player and no delibrate stamp. If anything it should have been a england free kick. Ok he pushed Ronaldo away, i dont even blame him, he made nothing of it. but the ref saw something that never exsisted.
On Englands performace they never deserved to make the semi based on the performances and there is only one to blame. Sven, never had a scoobby do!
So near and yet so far, again!
In some ways this game was reminisant of the Argentina match 8 years ago.....
After going down to 10 men, we raised our game.
Again, I see everyone is looking for a scapegoat, so who shall we blame? Yes Ronaldo has proved himself to be a complete shit, but it's about time we look ourselves in the mirror to see the true reason we failed again.
5 pretty average at best performances, key players including a non-existant captain not delivering, poor tactical and selection decisions from a non-caring hapless manager and worst of all, piss poor discipline when needed the most!.....etc etc etc
We can easily point the finger at players missing spot kicks, but do we know what it's really like to make the 60 yards walk, place the ball on the spot and try to beat a keeper with 50000 people shouting and screaming the in the background, with a place in the World Cup semi-final place at stake. However credit where it is due, maybe not the best penalties in the world, but they were on target and Ricardo had to save them and he almost saved Hargreaves one as well.......
Still Giro collectors who missed Pens and took us out of World Cup. Cant blame the Scum forever. Take responsibility for inverior players at international level........gerrard, crouch, carragher..........
i think to win a world cup u need belief u need to believe that u are capable of winning that you are capable of going all the way but 40 years of dodgy decisions nocks that belief u cant rule out the fact that we dont get the rub of the green there is no question there was enough quality there was match winners all over the pitch but the players we looked to the most just didnt believe
