Was that really a penalty? Robben sure acted into it but I didn't see the contact well enough to be sure.

It was a soft penalty, but indeed the contact has existed though

I watched the ref analyzer. It was a penalty for Robben and another one not given at 47th minute again for Robben.

Marquez definitely clipped on Robben's feet. Robben took full advantages on it.

Somehow I got the feeling Oranje will get 1 more after Sneijder's goal, Robben is dropping like a dead bird everytime someone touches him in the box, but the last one was penalty according to rules, but still too soft.

Mexico still deserves an applause, what a great World Cup. So much Tequila Power. Unfortunate to be knocked out in ET.

Good luck to Netherlands for quarters, if everything goes according to plan they are in the semis.

This game deserved to go to penalties.

Not even going to bother arguing. It was ridiculous. Contact =/= foul. Ridiculous way for a team to have to leave the WC.

And while we're at it, and everybody talking about make-up calls and such, just remember a Mexican players was kicked in the head in the pk box in the 1st half....yet nobody wants to talk about that.

So is FIFA going to ban Robben for 4 games and 4 months for being a lying diving cunt?

LOL, stop acting like crying babies please. At the end of the first half Moreno fouled Robben and it was 100% penalty. And we had two penalties against us vs. Spain and Australia that weren't penalties BY FAR

I haven't been this excited for a while tbh. Remember Dinamo Kiev-Inter in CL 2009/2010, it was a bit like that. :D

The BIGGEST respect for Dirk Kuijt btw. Not a big fan of him, but always works hard, never complains, plays where the coach needs him. Moreover he's become the seventh player to play at least 100 times for the Dutch NT, exactly seven years after he lost his dad. Grande Dirk!

It was a clear penalty. Of course Robben took advantage and acted like a fucking oscar-winner, but it was a penalty.















IMO this should be punished as well...but that's a different topic.

I`m sorry for the Mexican team, I really liked how they played, but I really think it was a penalty.

Kuyt is one of my fav players, I always wished to see him at Inter since his early days at Liverpool, there was a thread here years ago about who do you wish to see at Inter and he was one of the few I wanted back then, people used to laugh at me for picking him :alone: his work rate is among the best Ive ever seen. fantastic player.

Robben over-dramatized it, but it was definitely a penalty. And I would say the Netherlands just about deserved it after Mexico couldn't find a way to deal with Robben in the second half.

Penalty or not, Marquez didn't need to do that. He's our most veteran player and looked like a noob with that mistake. Robben was surrounded by 3 players and already lost the ball so he decided to dive when he felt the contact. Penalty? Probably, a very harsh one, but could had been avoided.

Mexico lost the game when they decided to park the bus instead of keeping possession like they were doing. Gio substitution also affected our attack and we lost our chances to score more goals. Aquino should had substituted Peralta not Gio. Oh well...
