    As a german i have to say that this is maybe the bitterest way to go out. But as a football fan, i have to commit that matches like this one show us why we all love this game so much.

    Great performance, great supsense, great emotions.

    Hi, I agree. Unfortunately giving a red or even yellow for theatrics will be very hard to enforce. There are some flagrant cases obvious to the viewer at home but it is hard for the referee to tell if a tumble is genuine or not without the benefit of instant replay. Imagine the double injury of taking a genuine tumble and then being awarded a red card for your pain. I think this is why most referees are loathe to apply even the currently prescribed yellow card, except they directly witness a violation, something which isn’t always possible with all the activity on the field.
