Ref ends the game after Korea earns a corner. Players and coach not too happy about that. Can't say I blame them.

Congrats Ghana.

Its been more attacking for most of the 2nd round.

We had 41 goals scored in the first round (16 games), but 20 of them came in 3 games (Spain 7-nil; England 6-2; France 4-1). You had 4 0-0 matches.

In the second round, you've had 35 goals with two matches left. Only one match at 0-0 (USA-ENG) and all the matches have been much more open and even.

Don't blame him but getting a strong word in is not worth the red card

The "unwritten rule on attacking free kicks" sort of goes out the window with the longer, more accurate amounts of stoppage time, imo.

He's pissed because they lost.

if USMNT was down 1 late, and won a CK right near the minimum announced stoppage time and the ref blew three whistles and didn't let us take it, and Greggg didn't get in the ref's face, I'd be angry at Greggg.

Maybe if they had been dangerous on one of the other 12 corners I'd feel bad for them
oh no

I don't feel bad for them. I'm happy for Ghana. But I can certainly understand why they'd be pissed about hearing the three whistles right as they won a corner.

Having not watched the match, I might offer this: maybe time ran out before the ball went into touch for the corner.

Perhaps the official gave them that leeway time during the attack, and once it failed, he ended the game.

this was almost certainly the case, but if you took a shot and it was deflected out for a corner and then you hear 3 whistles, you'd still be pissed no matter what.

Meh it was a weak shot out of desperation
They were over 10 minutes into stoppage time

Games should end the same way regardless of the amount of stoppage time. Feel bad for Korea.

They were going on the 12th minute of stoppage time...ref said "I'll give them one more attack"...I get the "unwritten rule" thing 100% but its obvious and understandable why the ref blew the whistle...

So if SK keeps getting corners, are you going to keep letting them take corners? As some point you have to say you had your chance, the game is over. They posted 9 minutes of stoppage and the game ended at 90+11.

I'd certainly want to see Berhalter go say something. But I wouldn't want him to cross the line into red card territory after the final whistle when you have no recourse and going into our decisive final group stage match.

If the Swiss coach's comments didn't warrant a red card, shame on the referee. Based on how long he was barking and how many Swiss staff were trying to intervene, I'm pretty sure he crossed the line.

that's kindof the unwritten rule that many assume. I understand why the ref finally ended it, but ref could have ended it earlier on the last clearance by ghana or waited for one more corner to avoid controversy. I'm sure the ghana coaches were yelling to end it because they're over the min 9 or 10 they put up at 90, but then the S Korean coaches are obviously like wtf - why'd you end it there?

how in the wide world of sports is Godin still plugging along starting for URU at 36? He's like 7 years older than John Brooks.
