The Ukranians takie the points and progress to the next round. However did some dubious refereeing decisions have an impact on the game?
Have your say here.

Nobody had a good game, and that includes the referee.

This just highlights what a weak group this was. Ukraine are hardly world beaters and were pumped by Spain, but still managed to qualify very comfortably for the last 16.

Yet more abysmal refereeing. Having said that, Tunisia were toothless in attack even with 11 men - I don't know how they would have scored another even if they had got the penalty. Ukraine have just surpassed England as the worst team to qualify for the final 16.

God almighty- this has to be the worst game of the world cup so far.

What a diving cheat - see the way Shevvy Chase managed to trip himself up AND flick his left leg out before diving. Him and chelsea are suited- arrogant, manipulative, cheating con artists!!

Ukraine are the most talentless, uninspiring, useless bunch of overhyped cr@p i've seen here since Croatia. 'Technically gifted' my rectum- if thats the only way they can beat 10-man Tunisia and get out of their 'Group of Death' I hope South Korea or whoever plays them massacres them in the next round

Rather mundane game decided by 2 penalties , 1 hand ball not given and acting awarded a penalty, pretty much sums up the refs at this World Cup , Shocking!

It isn't Euro-biased refereeing - it is elitist refereeing. All the dubious decisions seem to favour the elite teams - Brazil, Argentina included. FIFA would rather see Shevchenko in the next round than Jaidi - he is a bigger star!

... not just me that thought it could only be an English referee that denies the Aussies two clear penalties and allows the opposition three cards before dismissal!

There has been no major upset in this world cup so far, now i dunno if the gap is widening between big teams in europe , south america and ther rest of the world but u wud have thought this day and age teams from all around would have caught up in some departmens of the game, most teams already made it through the next round in their second game, not really teams have gone to the wire, there has not been a upset since like cameroon italia 90, ok ghana and ecuador gone through but that aint really a big shock, u can say that was expected, though it has been a decent world cup there aint been any exciting stuff like big major upsets. Sad to see that.

Eurobias??

Thats why Ghana got a dodgy pen which effectivly sent out the Czechs and Brazil have had plenty of dodgy decisions.

Italy had a man sent of and the refereeing in Englands first game was horrific.

Poll might have sent off an Aussie but he also sent off two Croatians. I can't see where you're coming from with that. Also Kewell's goal was offside.

The refereeing has been terrible though. I don't blame the refs blame FIFA they are the ones telling the refs to clamp down. Not for the first time in the tournament someone was booked today for going for a header. The situation with the Ghana penalty was a joke as well. I think FIFA just want to outlaw tackling altogether. So what if there's a slight risk of injury thats part of the game. It is supposed to be a contact sport. Football is becoming less of a man's game every year.

On the contrary, this world cup is building up to be something special because the strongest teams are still in the competition.

Italy had a man sent of

Quoted from this message



Oh yes and what a dubious decision that was <doh>. Don't forget that in the same match the US had two players sent off in succession almost immediately following.

I think the opposite most teams have acquitted themselves really well apart from a couple of thrashings but that's always going to happen with so many games.
