    South Korea's 24 fouls anger Mexico's Osorio

    4 monthes ago - By Yahoo Sports

    Reuters Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio urged action against repetitive fouling after his team was on the receiving end of 24 fouls in their 2-1 win over South Korea at the World Cup on Saturday.

They were also whistled for 23 fouls in their first game against Sweden, tied for the second-most with Morocco's 23 against Portugal. "Usually, I don't like to talk about referees but there was something I didn't like and that was that there were 24 fouls against us," said...

    4 monthes ago - By ESPN FC

    Senegal coach Aliou Cisse criticised his team for letting Japan equalise twice in their World Cup Group H game on Sunday, and said he expected more from central defenders Kalidou Koulibaly and Salif Sane.

    "Of course there are regrets, but we must say we didn't...
