    i’m not so sure about your asessment of the uglyness after the last penalty.

    or, to qoute the guardian: “but the result was taken with supreme gracelessness by Gabriel Heinze and Carlos Tevez, who waded into the celebrating German melee swinging haymakers.”

    i really haven’t seen anything from the german side apart from trying to defend the attacked.

    SDF: My understanding of normal rules on this sort of thing is that retaliation is treated as harshly as the initial punch. I think it’s a harsh way of doing it, but there we go. Rumours are already starting to flow back and forth over how it started, but there’s no doubt from looking at the TV pictures that any violence was instigated by the Argentinians.

    didn’t Leandro Cufre already get a red card for starting the thing? i think i heard something like it on the radio.

    I think he was sent off after the match. Rumour and counter rumour will fly around now in an attempt to muddy the waters, but I don’t think there can be too much debate over who the aggressors were.

    I dont speak inglish.Hi im from Argentina. I see your comment in The Guardian.
    i dont like the referi Lubos Michel. We have two difficult moment.
    1) Abbadonzieri
    2) Lubos Michel..SUCKS
    It is a shame that has not played Saviola and Messi.¿?
    Tévez and Messi have a great future in the football. I am consent to everything what they demonstrated in the World Cup.

    Germany are going to win this thing. I’m fairly sure the only team that can stop them are England.

    And England won’t stop them. We’re really dreadful.

    I think you meant to say Maxi rodriguez’s great goal against Mexico. Cambiasso was the late substitute for Riquelme.

    What I kept wondering is where was Leonel Messi, the supposed next Maradona ?? Where, where where ???
