Germany, I presume your choice of name is ironic! Pepe had to go. You can't go butting people in the face, even if they have just hurled themselves around the floor like a toddler tantruming in a supermarket.
Lusi, I must respectfully disagree. Pepe lost his head and any referee in the world would have sent him off. Besides which, the game was already slipping out of reach by then.
Lusi, he stuck his head in Muller's face and there was contact. That's all it takes. Remember Beckham in '98? If Pepe was 17 and it was all a bit much for him, I'd have sympathy, but he's an experience professional at one of the biggest teams on the planet. He should know better and he's got no-one to blame but himself.
fitz, we're here for you!
Even if you dispute the referee's decisions, Lusi, you cannot tell me that Portugal were ever in that game. They were terrible at the back (remember Rui Patricio and Khedira, remember Alves and Pepe getting nowhere near Hummels), they were terrible in the midfield (remember all the incoherent passes, remember Nani) and they were terrible up front (no evidence required). The ref had nothing to do with this, Portugal were wretched.
I will accept, however, as I did at the time, that Portugal should have had a penalty in the second half.
Estevao, I think missing out on the cake is a clincher.
Deeks, he is a big angry defender, I wouldn't be surprised.
