    He didnt send Heinze off, but he disallowed Messi’s goal, and by carding the wrong mexican let them keep 11 on the pitch late on.
    I thought Mr Striding played well for mehcico, shame he could only find his own goal and not the argentine one.

    I’m not sure he carded the wrong Mexican at all.
    It looked to me like he carded the right Mexican who kicked the ball away after the whistle was blown for the foul.
    The referee failing to give a red card to Heinze was an absolute disgrace and highlights one again the sorry state of top level refereeing.

    I agree about the red-card. However, there was a pretty blatant make-up call in injury time as Messi’s goal was disallowed.

    All in all, the best game of the tournament. Given Mexico’s record in penalty kicks, as a Mexican, I’d rather see them go down like this instead of losing from the spot. Way too painful.
