But, I agree that they pretty much negated a potential divefest in the first half, except for the one Italian dive early in the game just outside the Spanish penalty area. But, the second half looked more like a game between Mediterranean powers played with random sniper shots from the crowd. I do believe that Iniesta blows out two ACL's and his left Achilles in every game.
I think Balotelli's card was for accumulation of minor stuff. I think the ref had warned him after he was pounding his fist in the ground that he wasn't going to put up with Balotelli's antics. I had to miss the second half. I'm glad I did.
