    Okay, another refereeing issue from the absolutely cracking Argentina-Columbia game, surely one of the best 0-0 ties ever played. When Columbia's Moreno missed the open goal after the referee played advantage on a clear penalty kick, should he have called play back for the PK, or was the advantage already used up by Moreno's miss? On my (grade 8) refereeing course, we were taught to bring the play back, as such a short time period had elapsed. But many refs argue you can't have your advantage and eat it, so to speak. Which is correct? And shouldn't the Argentine defender who committed the foul, Milito, at least have been yellow-carded, regardless?

    My bad - Colombia, not 'Columbia'. Just read the intro. properly - calling Argentina's showing "a dreadful display" is harsh. Colombia were superb, and easily the stronger, more positive team, but Argentina made their own contributions to a spectacular evening of soccer. I could have watched it for hours, goals or not.
