    Heh, ref is a bit of a show pony, harsh red. Ponce is a dirty sod though

    Worst red of a tournament full of bad reds tbh. Admittedly wasn't a straight red, but a horrible decision anyway, was never a yellow.
    I know a place where a royal flush
    Can never beat a pair

    It potentially means Chile will be out of the tournament and not Switzerland despite Chile being the much better team.

    Soft 2nd yellow but he was lucky he didn't pick up a 2nd yellow 2 minutes previously when he hacked down Iniesta.
    Ponce lucky not to be sent off as well.

    If Switzerland can gee themselves up we might still get Brazil-Spain in the next round

    Think Pickup once told me that you can't play advantage on a red so the goal shouldn't have stood, no?
    If it's violent conduct you can't play advantage.

    The laws don't state anything about yellow card offences.

    Assuming no more goals for Spain, Switzerland need to win 3-0.

    We had a situation in the 08-09 season where one of our players who was on a yellow (Steve Jennings, you might know him as he plays for Motherwell now) committed a fairly bad foul, ref played advantage and we all expected a red (i.e second yellow) once the ball went out, to no avail. mentioned it in the footy thread and Mr Pickup informed me that you can't play advantage on any red, ever.

    I don't profess to be an expert and it would be a pedantic ref to stop that goal, just wondering aloud and getting up to no good tbh

    Yeah, well I think we can all safely say we expect that from Switzerland

    Chile came 2nd in South America if I am not wrong. Will be a big upset if they are out. They have the potential to defeat some of the top teams.

    Iniesta is the player I enjoy watching the most in football.

    Gotta say, as much as I admire the Swiss and their no-nonsense approach, this is the first time when there's been something riding on both games that I haven't gone channel hopping. Just don't want to actually watch them.

    Quite like watching a team like Switzerland against teams like Chile & Spain though, usually makes for interesting viewing
