I got this little tidbit from my buddy Ilan...
Now to the weird Argentine connection in this cup. Although Argentina did not win the cup, argentines definitely altered the outcome.
Here it goes:
1) Argentine ref. gives Rooney a red card. England is eliminated.
2) Argentina fight with Germany causes German to lose its best defensive midfielder for a game. Germany is eliminated
3) Argentine ref gives Zidane a red card...France loses
4) But wait, Trezeguet misses the penalty kick. Guess where his parents are from and where he first started paying? Argentina
