    I've been trying to keep an eye on this one on ESPN3 while I watch the other on the television. Nothing really has happened from a refereeing standpoint. Eriksson is confident and assured; Sweden really must have an excellent referee program to keep on producing top-level referees.

    There was just a goal, which might liven things up in both matches for the second halves.

    Is goal difference the tiebreaker for teams on the same points? or is it H2H result?

    This best answers the questions about who goes through, but essentially it's head-to-head first (but in 3-way ties, that really doesn't help, which is what we're looking at right now). Second is GD for the games played among the tied teams: http://www.uefa.com/uefaeuro/news/newsid=1818000.html

    i cant even deal with the permutations right now. 25 mins after the goal, I dont think ESPN has it figured out either.

    Havent been able to find a "live table"

    UH-OH! Greek player booked for a dive. Replays show 100% penalty.

    So, when we say that this tourney has seen no ref-controversies, the Greeks may disagree???

    It's not 100% if the player wasn't running into the box he wouldn't have gotten fouled. Poor decision on the players part.

    Greece and Russia go through if results hold.

    If the other game has a winner, that winner goes through with Greece right now if Greece holds on to win.

    Obviously if Russia draws or wins, they go through (and we go back to the result of the other match determining the second team, with a draw putting the Czechs through).

    That's essentially all the possibilities.

    Poor decision for running into the box with the ball trying to score a goal? Umm what?

    I'm not sure what you are trying to say here.

    That's not DOGSO, the other defenders there.

    I wonder if the AAR...

    1) Gave incorrect help, causing or confirming the yellow
    2) Kept silent
    3) Gave help but was overruled

    Also, had the penalty been given, was it red?

    And, that recent foul just outside the area... Greeks arguing for DOGSO on that. Looked a decent argument, but not clear cut.

    As a person of Greek descent...I can only say there is nothing remotely funny about this. :mad:

    I think Eriksson is playing himself out of a knockout assignment. The standards elsewhere have been too high. Cruel business, but one big error and not the strongest overall second half might be enough to seal his fate.

    Yeah there's too many good refs and performances, and names. I also think we should entertain the theory that all of Europe is mad at Greece. Come on it'll be fun!

    "Terrible," really? Guy reffed circles around one of the biggest rivalries in the world. He's got a major call wrong and been a little lenient elsewhere (he probably senses he got that penalty decision wrong and it might affect him). He's still an elite FIFA referee.

    Actually it would be the exact opposite of fun. Let's keep it to referee news and analysis. The other forums devolve quickly because that sort of stuff comes into play.

    Ok he's having a terrible performance. I mean come on trips are easy, these aren't split second cleats connecting or not, these are just straight up trips.

    I've never wanted Greece to win anything but I really want them to win this game.
