World Cup Final - Ugly Stuff

Sad to see the inventors of Total Football playing like a bunch of Sunday park cloggers. Holland lucky to see out the game with ten men. The ref, an English policeman, must have thought about reaching for his trusty truncheon a time or two. Here's Mike Ingham, the BBC's chief football correspondent:

the biggest match in the world was soiled and stained and betrayed by the Netherlands.

I know part of football is to stop your opponent, but you must do it legitimately and I don't really see the point of getting to the final if you're going to disrespect it like the Dutch did so crudely. It was a bit like watching a child trying to build a sandcastle and another child then knocking it down.
