Not a chance, and I play as a striker who is always screaming for penalties that clearly aren't :D

Then you must be some sort of expert. Sorry, definitely not a penalty then.

Which part of the ball did he touch? None. Did he get the man? Yes.

Please explain how it isn't a penalty?

Balo just learned what happens if you crawl underneath a jumping player on every opportunity. Apart from dirty, it's stupid. They do come down again you know...

Sturridge went down far too easily, will look at half time again, but didn't look to me as if he touched Sturridge

Good passage of play between Pirlo, Balotelli and Ciro there but no idea why Immobile runs straight at the last defender. Run wide fgs and play it back in for a late runner :rolleyes:

Uruguay look toothless atm. The three-at-the-back system is doing a good job of keeping Suarez quiet. Italy still need to find the first goal though or it's their tournament over imo.

Italy completed over 175 passes to Uruguay's 75 :D

Uruguay played the same game with England, try to stay back and counter with kicks (both at the ball and opponent)

They had 38% possession against England

Balotelli scowling at people like Ronaldo was against the US, except Balotelli's actually getting good service and players are making good runs and he's just not giving a ****. :thdn:

Just rewound it again, defender puts himself between Sturridge and the ball, Sturrdge falls down easy, no penalty.

Okay, well we can all agree your wrong. Your entitled to your opinion, but it's wrong. It's irrelevant if you think he went down 'easily' or not. The Costa Rica player fouled him and that's the end of it.

First halves always touchy, they don't start playing football until 2nd half

Oh another Uruguayan trying to kick an Italian player and then rolling on the ground promptly

Chiellini, the ultimate Italian 'hardman'. Spends half the match on the floor cringing in 'pain' :thdn:

He didn't put himself between the ball and Sturridge though did he? He put his leg in front of Sturridge and took him down, getting none of the ball in the process. It's not like he just outmuscled him ffs.

Uruguay apparently only committed 10 fouls in the first :lol:

There were at least 15 stoppages for injured Italians though :D

Just saw this Sturridge penalty call that you're debating and, personally, I think it is a foul but Sturridge is looking for it. It's one of those ones if its outside the box it's a freekick. So yeah, a penalty, but Sturridge makes a meal of it.
