    Correct call on the penalty … and shirt-pulling really does annoy me … but curious to penalise in injury time something that had happened to some degree at every corner in the game.

    I think Howard Webb only remembered at the very last minute that he – as the English FA’s successor to Graham Poll as its refereeing representative – was duty bound to do something bewildering that would see his officiating team dropped for the rest of the tournament. Luckily he managed to squeeze one in at the death.

    All in all, that was an odd match last night. If either of those teams go any further in this competition it will be a big surprise.

    p.s. the word verification for this comment was “hbzhzsz”, who actually played in last night’s game.

    Oh, also, I think the fact Leo Beenhakker has never won a single game in an international finals tournament is possibly my favourite FACT of the entire tournament. England’s group at the 1990 World Cup were a spectacularly undistinguished lot, really, weren’t they?

    p.s. the word verification for THIS comment was becubztu, who is the Romanian left back this evening.
