    Just googled this

    It was reported in Argentina that the German referee, Rudolf Kreitlein, said that he had sent off Rattín because he did not like how he had looked at him,[11] while British newspapers cited the official as having given the reason as "violence of the tongue," despite the referee speaking no Spanish.

    LOL, no chance of the FIFA giving penalties against India after the BCFI has had their way with them.

    iirc Rattin had already been booked for repeatedly arguing with the referee but kept showing dissent.
    So it was two bookings rather than a straight sending off.
    And apparently the team had been warned after a similar performance in their group game against West Germany.

    Maybe the ref just felt he should just stfu instead of trying to officiate the game.
    Could have done with some of that last night.

    EDIT
    This is pretty good.

    The sending off is after 35 minutes.

    I’d have thought a 1960s German would have been quite sympathetic to Argentina, given how many of his countrymen immigrated there in the mid-40s.

    For illustrative purposes I thought I'd look up England's record against CONCACAF, Asian and African teams at world cups.

    England are pretty much the Newcastle United of international football. Usually there without threatening to seriously contend, won nothing since Jesus was in shorts, loyal and easily mocked following normally seen blubbing in highlights montages, couple of near misses in the 90s that made everyone cream their keks & a succession of shytehouse managers. Not one of the first water.

    v African teams - P7 W4 D3 L0
    v Asian teams - P1 W1 D0 L0
    v CONCACAF teams - P6 W3 D2 L1

    Doesn't prove anything in and of itself, but unless we come up against any non Yurp or South American team not fielding a Haitian ringer, we seem to be pretty much golden.

    Naming them isn't a bad trivia quiz actually. Obviously no cheating allowed.

    7 sounded a lot for Africa but I got there once I realised that Tunisia is in Africa and remembered our draw against Nigeria in 2002.
    Who on earth did we ever play from Asia?
    And I'm struggling with CONCACAF after Panama and our 2 games against USA. Oh, and Mexico in 1966. Now I'm struggling.

    That would be Kuwait then. Actually I did remember them after posting - a pretty drab 1-0 win, that's easily forgotten. And I didn't really think of them as part of Asia, although obviously that's where they'd have to qualify from.

    As for CONCACAF, there's our match against T&T in 2006 but I don't know who the 6th match was against.
    EDIT - I'm there now. The highlight of our last campaign. tbf I didn't watch any of it as I was at wpjunior's cricket match.

    1966 was a disgraceful WC. Terrible refereeing and European defenders (esp English ones) could do as they please. No shame. Different times indeed.
