    Back Off!!

    P.S. Man of the match Wayne Rooney for stamping on a Portuguese cheating player - pity the rest of the team did not stick into them also - anyone else notice that EVERY time Portugal lost possession their player hit the floor? I though FIFA was booking players for that kind of play?

    • Yes I noticed that too... as soon as any England player literally brush by them then the Portugese would fall to the floor as if he'd been hit by a car and stay down until the ball went out of play then they supposedly recovered... and got up and were running around.. we english are too honest if any of our players go down they go down because they HAVE been injured...

    • with all the focus on Rooney/ ronaldo no one is complaining about the 2 ( yes 2 ) LEGITIMATE claims we had for penalties during the game (1.handball 2. Lennon hacked down)
      the ref was more biased than the pro Germany ones i have seen. why is it in the big games we always get a ref who has history of arguaments with English players on a club level??? coincidence????
      to all those who think this is a sore rant please note i have been posting truthfully on non English games too..
      now for the sake of the game i hope France win it as i have only seen 1 dive by them and hundreds by the others.
