Korea vs. France, 86 or 87th minute, tie game. Great save by the Korean keeper on Henry, who was put through by Zidane. Zidane is lurking for a rebound, and the Korean #2 deliberately steps in front of the onrushing Zidane. Zidane is booked, and will miss Friday's critical match vs. Togo. Totally ridiculous. The French have already been denied a legitimate goal, and we may have seen the last of Zidane. Nice one, FIFA**, nice one, referee.
**In the unlikely event that you care, but don't know this, a note: FIFA have instructed the referees to tighten up,and give more cards. Franz Beckenbauer has reportedly spoken out against the rash of cards, trying to return the game to a sense of normalcy. But both yesterday's and today's late games showed how card-happy referees can ruin a tournament.
