The last time these two sides met in a World Cup final in 1990, both Pedro Monzon and Gustavo Dezotti saw red for the Argentinians. Fast forward to the first half of the 2014 final and a high challenge by Germany’s Benedikt Howedes could have, with a more strict referee, have also seen red.

    Howedes didn’t even protest the card knowing he just got away with murder, he even gave the referee a pat!

    Well, with a more strict refree Agüero and Mascherano should have been send off, as well. It’s a World Cup Final. You only give a red when it’s absolutely necessary and here Yellow is just reasonable!

    Agüero’s 2nd yellow on the other hand is mandatory!

    Well what about Agüero then? Already booked, he gave Schweinsteiger a bleeding cut beneath the eye and got away with it too.

    double standards all over the place
    i missed at least 1 red card on both sides, and 4-4 yellow cards as well
    but you guys got used to this sport changed into some kungfu, and i have a feeling FIFA put the BRUTAL INJURY on the worldcup agenda, the world cup is not good enough without it. go back and check how many player got his leg feet whatever broken in this past month
