Messi is a wrecking ball. Just causes panic anytime he approaches
the box.

On the first goal, *ouch* at the referee AND the linesman both looking
up at hte giant screen and both seeing the replay. Sucks. Video-
technology is not an assualt on referees, it HELPS the referees.
They're human. It'll never be 100% but obvious errors can be reduced.
I don't think the referee at the England game felt good about himself
when he saw the replay.

On the second goal, Higuain shows that he's absolute class. They've
been a couple of one on ones in this WC and most times I've seen the
player instinctively just poke it forward, usually on the ground, and
the GK saves. Higuain had the presence of mind to round the the goal
keeper. A class goal.

Will there be any referees left to take this World Cup until the end? I
mean, two more are going home today, right? =)

2-0 now, Higuain, after a major blunder by Osorio.

Game over.

Yep, appears neither match would be close today.

No real surprise.

Indeed. It is far from being over yet.

Osorio almost gave away another. Luckily Tevez was pushed wide and Messi
wasn't close.

I still think their back line looks extremely suspect.
