Thanx to the idioticly stupid Korean ref a free-kick was given as a penalty and thanx to this Brazil won. I congraulate Brazilians for the victory but it is a very undeserved won. Turkey deserved to win today but instead we lost to a very unfair bull**** decision for the very least this game should have been a draw. all we can do now as Turks is look forward to the Costa Rica and China games which we 200% surely win we will be at the 2nd round. That penalty was bull****and everyone knows that there is no argument there but at the end all I can do is congradulate Brazil and their fans on the victory even though it was undeserved.

Turkey deserved win? But they had the goal and no one REAL chance to score. Marcos didnt any hard work during all match.

But when you say that the referee wrong in the penalty you are right. This was outside of area and he did too much mistakes during the match.

But it can say that Brasil dont deserved win. We play badly, with our crap defense, but nobody can say that we dont deserve win.

Here is BBC s report.

-------------------

Brazil 2-1 Turkey
A controversial late penalty by Rivaldo handed Brazil a 2-1 victory over a Turkey side who saw two men sent off in a gripping opening game in Group C.

Aston Villa's Alpay was sent off in the 85th minute after hauling down Luizao, although the offence took place just outside the penalty area.

It was rough justice on Turkey who impressed with their commitment and skill, and led at half-time thanks to Hasan Sas' expertly-struck injury-time goal.

But early in the second half, Ronaldo capped his impressive display with the equalising goal as he converted Rivaldo's cross.

Brazil enjoyed the majority of the chances, but committed Turkey held out, only to blot their copybook with late indiscipline which saw Hakan Unsal also red-carded for petulantly kicking the ball at Rivaldo.

Brazil started brightly, and on seven minutes Ronaldinho's audacious 25-yard chip was just too high, with Turkish goalkeeper Rustu Recbar stranded.

But the Turks weathered Brazil's early pressure and almost took the lead on 19 minutes.

Ironically, Turkey had made an utter hash of a free-kick 20 yards from goal, but amid the confusion, Blacburn Rovers' Tugay lashed in a powerful drive which deflected off Gilberto Silva and shaved Brazil's crossbar.

A scrappy spell followed, but a fierce Juninho strike on the half-hour brought the crowd to life, as it whizzed just over.

Yet the half ended in dramatic fashion with a flurry of chances for Brazil, and a Turkish goal.

A brilliant save by Rustu stopped a Rivaldo header on 40 minutes, the Barcelona striker latching on to Ronaldo's great cross.

Alpay was fortunate to escape with a yellow card after tripping the lively Ronaldo as the Inter Milan man was racing on to Juninho's pass.

That was after Rustu had saved from Rivaldo, and the keeper was again in action in injury time as Ronaldinho's intricate skill fashioned a chance which the Turkish keeper stopped with his legs.

Yet with just seconds remaining of the half, Turkey scored.

Yildiray Basturk crossed from an unthreatening midfield position, but Hasan Sas had nipped in behind the Brazilian back line and thrashed the ball past Marcos to give Turkey the lead.

It was a surprise which delighted their vociferous fans, but the joy was short-lived as Luiz Felipe Scolari's half-time team talk paid instant dividends for Brazil.

After a fine block prevented Ronaldo, the Inter Milan striker did score on 50 minutes, expertly diverting Rivaldo's cross past Rustu.

A sublime piece of trickery four minutes later gave Ronaldo another chance, although Rustu was alert to his curling shot.


The second half continued in gripping fashion. Ronaldo, then Roberto Carlos both came close for Brazil, before Turkey's Hakan Unsal blasted a Roberto Carlos-esque free-kick which Marcos spiled.

Brazil were doing most of the attacking, however, Lucio seeing Rustu save a close-range header, and Rivaldo seeing a header ruled out for offside.

Goalscorer Ronaldo made way for Luizao on 73 minutes, Scolari opting to rest the resurgent star.

Brazil's threat remained, however, and a thunderous drive from Rivaldo whistled inches over the top, and Roberto Carlos wayward right foot shot flying high.

But with five minutes remaining, there was high drama as Alpay was red-carded for hauling down Luizao.

Referee Kim Young-Joo rightly sent Alpay off, but awarded Brazil a penalty despite the fact the offence was just outside the area.

Rivaldo had no worries, however, as he slotted home the spot-kck with aplomb.

There was still time for late drama, as Hakan Unsal received a second yellow for kicking the ball at Rivaldo at a corner kick - although the Brazilians over-dramatic reaction contributed to the Turk's downfall.

A draw would have been a fair result. Individual Brazilians were of course, on the whole, better than individual Turks, but they deserved a point for their determination and spirit. And their goal was pretty. Most of all, the Turks didn´t deserve to lose to this silly referee.

Scolari´s substitutions were plainly wrong, except Juninho/Denilson. I only noticed Vampeta once, when he gave the Turks the ball - and Ronaldo was still dangerous when he was taken off. Luizao was plainly careless - what a difference Romario would have made a few times.

Last: Don´t you think Rivaldo´s behavior when he pretended to have taken the ball in the face and fell down crying like a baby was a disgrace? The Turk shouldn´t have kicked the ball so hard in his direction but this!! This ham-acting might have been forgivable in the middle of a game where it might have made a diffrence - but a few seconds from the end in a game Brazil was winning - and not altogether deservedly, pace the wrong penalty!

Rivaldo - arguably one of the best footballers in the world - playing for BRAZIL - and he is reduced to this cheating in order to make sure that a TURK - understandably angry for being behind - is sent off. Not for any benebit for Brazil, because the game was over - but just to spoil things for Turkey. Shame on you, Rivaldo!

TURKEY was strong but the referee could not stand against Brasil's name.

How can FIFA appoint such a weak and inexperienced referee to the one of the most competitive matches in the first round. He was totally awful.


1. He showed very easy yellow cards to the Turkish side but did not even warn Brasil players even at more serious faults. He should have shown yellow cards to Lucio in the first half after the fault he made following losing the ball. Also Near the end, Roberto Carlos made a loosy tackle to Ilhan Mansýz after his very very classy move. He deserved a yellow card, too. They were both opportunities to score but the shown ones are not related with goal.

2. During our free kicks, Brasilian players always moved before we hit the ball. Our players tried to teach the referee that they were moving early. I can understand that referee could not see that in the passing variations ( still too many to be unspoited ) but what about the last free kick. Two players were at most 2 meters away when Arif shot. How stupid can a referee be? Instead of watching the Brasil players, he was loooking at his "watch" after his wistle.

3. What about those divings. Roberto dived in the first half but the referee must have thought that he dived because of his real frustration, not a fake. Rivaldo did not dive, he was in real pain. I mean Hakan is good at martial art, he caused pain in rivaldo's head just buy hitting the ball to his legs, pin point accuracy.

4. Do I have to say anything about the penalty ???

When I was a kid, I was amazed by Brasil's football but now the little kids who watched this game won't be so symphatised as I did. Turkey has won!!!
