Truth to be said, you got the feeling that the BBC commentators aren't
exactly happy Argentina is winning the game, the Mexican goal has just
galvanized them ...

Thankfully, it's not quite over yet it appears... Nice shot by Hernandez for
the 1-3.

The biggest embarrassment for himself was to let the call stand. I'm sure he
would have taken it back if he and the linesman were sure it was a bad call.

This is why I believe a fourth official with access to video and instant
communication to the field refs could only help the game in such situations.

Good control, great finish by Hernandez. Romero beaten on his near
post. Seriously.

Anyway, glad to see him do well. With him (and maybe Fabiano) next
season, I am excited for United's prospects.

I think there's a manhunt on... I've seen mention in the press of the
