Ali al Badwawi had it easy in this match. Really easy. In fact if he hadn't whistled for a few non fouls he may not have whistled at all. Except for it to end.
the Australians are bigger than the Indians so with a lot of collisions it was an Indian falling. Al Badwawi saw the falling more often that not as a foul by the other guy. Even when there hadn't been any physical contact.
Always the thing to nag about: off-side, but this time there was one assistant who was wrong every time.
The Australians passing the ball around with long, high and very slow kicks and the Indians, whenever they had the ball, doing their best giving it back to the Australians. Giving the Ozzies all the time in the world for another pass or cross straight at the head of a forward. But slow was the word. I only saw one rush in the whole match, by McDonald. In the 87th minute.
