I really dont understand the whinning about South korea's successes. Is it because they did not only beat Portugal but also Italy and Spain, wich are all so called football nations, that football fans all over the world feel threatend by this tiny Asian football nation?
Now I would like to hear a good reason why the referees would favor South Korea and not Japan. Japan being, just like South Korea a host country. In fact Japan would be far more interesting to favour as the population is bigger aswell as the economie. Atleast that's what some of you might assume, that it's all about money. But Japan stranded in the second round.
As L-188 mentioned no red cards at the US game. Remember it was Portugals Figo who proposed to the South Koreans, at half time of their game, to draw. So Portugal and South Korea would continue.
Also, the only referee send away from the WorldCup so far was Peter Prenderhard of Jamaica. If the referees involved in South koreas game where that obviously biased towards South Korea the FIFA would have taken the same action against them.
It is my believe that merely due to the fact of the many fouls commited by South Koreas opponents and the big surprise that the South Koreans learned how to play football just like any other established football nation that South Korea came this far.
To be continued on tuesday, but I would suggest to refrain from whinning beforehand how the referees are going to favor South Korea again. Afterall germany had it's fair share of luck aswell this WorldCup, so South Korea might have to share that bit.
Let the best team win this World Cup, wherever they might come from, but in case your team loses take it as a Sportsman and not like a chiken.
