We knew Flamengo was going to resort to CONCACAF levels of shithousery because South American club football sucks ass and they had a ref chosen for politics over quality. It’s still fun to laugh at the circus.
It’s often fun to see the clash of styles, but when a referee allows a side to reach so deeply into the black arts it just becomes infuriating. Let’s play footy, not this disgusting bullshit.

“Ref the Club World Cup final!” Is a helluva contest prize to win.

Joking. This ref is clearly related to the crown and this is his big audition for a European job.

You guys seriously think this is reaching deeply into the black arts?

California. Duh.
If you are going to flop, you probably shouldn't do it when the defender is facing the other direction.

And if you're worried, yes, they do play extra time before gong to penalties.

A goalie feigning cramp is a new one, he must have sprinted his socks off today

No problem taking his goal kicks though, what a trooper

Rafinha catches Mane's foot just before he took the shot. This penalty should stand. Unless it is outside the box.

Please end this madness right here and now Mane.

Edit: Or TAA, whoever takes this free kick.

Contact looked like it was before Mané's foot crossed into the area, but is it clear enough?

Guess so. Slide it to TAA please

A replay that 100% showed that Rafinha's foot hit Mane's before Mane kicked the ball has somehow reversed the call on the field.

Watching the BBC and they have the angle that is a conclusive foul. They also make the good point that it’s a red by rule even though it should be outside box.

So, it should have been a foul, but if it's not a foul, it's a goal kick. Still trying to figure out how the ref just decided to give the keeper the ball at the edge of the area.

Imagine all the bad decisions this ref can make during a penalty shoot out. Should be exciting!

The other thing is that if you take the penalty away but still call the foul, it should have been a red for Rafinha.

We’re onto the lay on the field to get to penalties stage. So Brazilian soccer is just Italian soccer?
I'm sorry, but this is playing up a stereotype that pisses me off. The Italian game isn't clean by any stretch, but it doesn't touch the level of bullshit you'll see in South or Central America.

This is the last game of the season for flamengo and they're playing a high press the entire game. You know, maybe, just maybe, the cramps may be real...

Didn’t mean to offend but I was only referring to the time wasting piece. I agree the rest is purely South American.
