I know eh, that was a bullshiat call.... so was the perfectly fine second goal that Italy got that was deemed offside and the Scottish goal that actually was offside but was given to them. But you're right that that was a bullshiat call. Should have been 2-0 Italy - their first goal and the one taken away from them. Terrible officiating.

My first "text based communication" on fark. I'm Scottish and I'm devastated about tonights result. Our team put everything into that campaign and we still fail. God Hates Scotland.

I'm Italian but they deserve to be there. Scotland has been playing phenomenally, had they been in any other group I think they would have gone through without a problem, not that they didn't make everyone in the world question whether they were gonna make it out of this one and take Italy or France's spot.

They do deserve to be there. Top of the group right until the end. Who would have thought. Oh well, my bottle of champange remains in the fridge. Oh, who am I kidding...alcohol has a dual purpose...I'm going to open it anyway.

Goddammit. I scared my dog and my wife from another room while watching this game on P2P. If I remember correctly, my quote was, "Holy fark, how did you miss that?" in response to the gaping net.

Italy should have been up 2-0 before the half, if not for the dodgy offside call. I haven't seen enough of a replay to judge Ferguson completely.

The last minute foul was crap, but the free kick should have been better defended.

Ah well! There's always the World Cup qualifying. The draw's next week I think, and at least we'll be seeded in the second pool, rather than the fourth like this time.

Sorry to bark on about this guys, but I'm watching the Israel Russia game just now and Russia just missed a goal, so the English commentator says, 'England have been saved again'. Damn I hate the English media.

/Goddamn, Israel just took the lead

Why do I dislike soccer? Because lame-ass cheating Italians can be successful at it.

You were saying? Israel just won. England might very well qualify now.

If we can keep the players on the pitch for an entire game, there is a good chance.

Russkies for the 2nd spot! They lost in Israel on purpose.

Dramatic effect and all that.

jeffrey626: i hope some scots glass a few greasy italians tonight

What the hell is your problem, Scotland lost the game. In fact as is mentioned in all articles online on this already, including the BBC one, Italy had a legitimate goal taken away from them. The bad call at the end was the refs fault not Italy's so if the officiating was fair they would have still been up by a goal anyways but its just easier to blame the Italians for being cheap every time they win a game, how convenient. Of course its not Scotland's fault for not qualifying right? They were doing well, but they farked up and lost to Georgia and now they lost to Italy, so they're eliminated, thats how sports work, tough luck, maybe next time.

Nobody has mentioned that 'Italy's apparent legitimate onside goal that was ruled off was the result of one Italian using his arm to knock the ball back to his pal'. It was the wrong call by the officials but still the goal should not have stood due to the handball that led to the shot.

/as for the glassing comment leave that to the Italians, they are pretty good at doing that to each other anyway (and visiting Man U fans)

Well until the ref makes a public comment we won't know, unless you are saying he already has said that was the reason. But even the single Scottish goal was technically offside too, the announcers said it when I was watching and even skysports wrote about it.

64 - Controversy though: Italy will feel aggrieved when they see the TV pics after their goal was disallowed in the first half. Ferguson appeared half a yard offside when McCulloch had his initial shot. Still it's in the records now.
