The worst refereeings ever

As the title says. What are the matches with the worst referee's decisions in the history of football? The firsts I remember:

- Chile vs Italy 2-0, 1962 FIFA World Cup: Italian players brutalized by Chileans all the time. There is a Wikipedia article for those who want to know more about the match: the Battle of Santiago.

- South Korea vs Italy 2-1 aet, 2002 FIFA World Cup: a doubtful penalty conceded to Korea after just 3 minutes in the match (taken by Buffon) made immediately understand the intentions of the referee. During all the match every single decision was in favor of Korea, from the simple throw-ins to the offside situations. Level 2 during the extra-time: Francesco Totti sent off and a golden goal annulled to Tommasi for no apparent reason before the winning goal of Korea. The referee of the match, Byron Moreno, was banned to life one year later for other corrupted refereeings in Ecuador and arrested in 2010 for heroin smuggling.

- South Korea vs Spain 0-0 aet, 5-3 pen, 2002 FIFA World Cup: I can't remember the details as for the match against Italy but it was almost the same. I only remember two clear goals by Spain annulled for no apparent reasons. Korea "gained" the 4th place at the end of the tournament.

- Chelsea vs Barcelona 1-1, 2008-09 UEFA Champions League: remembered by Chelsea fans as a scandal, but the red card received by Abidal (Barcelona) was not deserved. Just a horrible refereeing, not necessarily in favor of Barcelona.

Yuichi Nishimura in the 2014 World Cup Opener of Brasil vs Croatia





-No red card for Neymar intentionally punching Luka in the face early in the match, Neymar goes on to score 2 goals when it should have be 0-1 for Croatia with Brasil down to 10 men
-Calls a BS penalty against Croatia which Neymar gets his 2nd goal from
-Disallows a Croatia goal where Olic outjumps the keeper Julio Cesar and gets the ball without touching/interfering
-Does not call a foul when Rakitic gets clearly blown up and fouled and Brasil score 2 seconds later

Also in that same match the ref allows a clear off side goal by Australia to make it 2-2 which knocks Croatia out of the tourney but moves Australia to the knock out rounds

Ceccarini, after almost 20 years, goes on repeating it was Ronaldo who charged Iuliano. lol

This one comes to mind, as it's become official that the ref was bought. Must be painful for a Notthingham fan to watch that penalty decision with that information in mind...there was also a perfectly good Forest goal disallowed which is not in that video.


Irriducibili? No thanks, I'm a fan of Lazio.

I have it on good authority that the Koreans were simply great students of football history and felt the need to avenge the hometown biased reffing in the '34 world cup and Euro '64/'68. A good solid effort by them imo.

Juve 7 Bologna 1

Juve continues towards the scudetto today after a stunning win at Delle Alpi.The match was supposed to be played at Renato Dall'Ara ( Bolognas Stadium )but it had been switched to Delle Alpi due to a request from referee De Santis who said it was the only venue where he could ensure fair play and get away with it.

Juve went ahead just before the kick-off when Zidanes through-ball sent the linesman away down the right flank. His cross was handled on the half-way line by a Bologna defender, and Del Piero stepped up to slot the ball home for his 65th penalty of the season, after hitting both posts and the bar. It was no more than Juve deserved.

The 15th minute saw Juve go two up after Wome was penalised for coughing just outside the area. Zidane's free kick was handled by Giovanni Bia , struck first time by Inzaghi, hit the back of a defender's boot, bounced up, struck the rim of a spectator's spectacles and floated, assisted by a freak wind, into the top corner of the Bologna net. It was no more than Juve deserved.

The 21st minute saw more trouble for Bologna, when Olive was sent off for inquiring about referee De Santis' black and white shirt. Two minutes before the interval Bologna struck back after an amazing piece of good fortune, Giuseppe Signori hitting home the rebound after a shot had been stopped on the line by the referee. Juve could scarcely believe their bad luck. Carlo Ancelotti threw down his programme and wouldn't talk to anyone for ten minutes. The restart saw unsportsmanlike Signori making ridiculous claims for a penalty after Ciro Ferrara had accidentally beaten up Tomas Locatelli. The referee had missed the incident due to his black and white scarf flowing in his eyes. Ten minutes later Ancelotti took off David Trezeguet and replaced him with three other players.

Juves third came after Cipriani had been caught offside in his own penalty area. Zidane took the free kick, which bobbled home after hitting the underside of the floodlights. The referee claimed the final touch. It was no more than Juve deserved.

Juves goal number four came after ninety-eight minutes after Giovanni Bia had conceded a penalty for blatantly glancing at the referee. It was no more than Juve deserved.

So 4-1 at full time, but referee De Santis sportingly agreed to call it 7-1 after Moggi threatened to cry and stamp his feet if he didn't. It was no more than Juve deserved...


A wee bit of jokes (part II)

Some of these are so appalling that, let alone the fact that the tournament organizations are themselves corrupt, these matches should have been replayed. Their results are in large part completely invalid.

My thread has definitely been misunderstood. Muntari's ghost goal or the hand goal by Maradona were just single errors; big errors, okay, but just single errors. I wanted to talk about refereeings that were horrible from the start to the very end of the match, that completely falsified the match.
