The Spain/South Korea match was the most appallingly refereed soccer match I have ever witnessed. Unlike other sports (like say, the NFL- the ‘real’ football), it appears that the officiating gets worse the farther into the playoffs teams advance. I have never seen two goals called back before. The WWF has more shame and less rigged matches. Absolutely disgusting, particularly when you consider that the soccer community has been desperately trying to cultivate interest in the sport in the United States. One thing Americans like and expect is fair play and an even playing ground, as well as sportsmanship. The World Cup has failed on all three accounts.
