In the fifteenth match of the 2006 World Cup the first penalty was given. Incorrectly... Ukraine player Vashchuk was sent off without any reason. Villa scored from the penalty. It was 3 - 0, the game was over.
In the first half Ukraine was flagged down six times by the Swiss linesman for off side. Replays showed it was incorrect four times. Sad for the Ukraine, unnecessary for Spain. They didn't need support from the refereeing trio.
In the second half there was not much to do for Busacca, the game slowly developed. Except for the fourth goal, set up by Puyol and smoothly finished by Torres. It was one of the most beautiful goals in this tournament so far.
