Another World Cup game, another controversial refereeing display

Two dodgy calls have overshadowed the first half of Mexico-Cameroon.

MEXICO ARE NOT happy after two seemingly legitimate Giovanni dos Santos goals were ruled out for offside in their World Cup match with Cameroon today.

In the first instance, the former Spurs player got on the end of a dangerous cross and finished excellently, but the linesman’s flag denied him his moment of glory.

Shortly thereafter, he headed home a corner, but again, an offside call was questionably made.

It is further controversy in the tournament, after Brazil’s game against Croatia last night was overshadowed by Fred’s dive to win a penalty in the match’s decisive moment.

However, the Mexicans eventually went ahead as Peralta tapped home on 61 minutes.

Check out the latest controversial calls and let us know your thoughts.
