Herrera accuses Robben after Mexico defeat

Mexico manager Miguel Herrera has accused Netherlands winger Arjen Robben of cheating after his side were knocked out of the World Cup on Sunday in a dramatic 2-1 defeat, Sky Sports has reported.

Herrera’s side dominated the first half possession, with midfielders Hector Herrera and Carlos Salcido both coming close to opening the scoring. The breakthrough came early in the second half when Giovani dos Santos found the corner of the net from 25 yards, raising hopes that Mexico could reach the last eight of a World Cup for the first time since 1986.


However, despite holding the lead until the 88th minute, they contrived to lose it in the final moments. Wesley Schneider equalised with a powerful volley, before Robben went down under a challenge from Mexican captain Rafael Marquez, and substitute Klaas-Jan Huntelaar fired home the winner.


After the game, Herrera pointed the finger at Robben for what he believed was diving from the Bayern Munich man, as well as criticising Portuguese referee Pedro Proenca. He said: "Robben did three dives and he should have been cautioned. You should caution a guy who is trying to cheat, and then if Robben did it again, he would be sent off.


"And why did FIFA choose a referee from the same confederation as Holland instead of one from South America, Asia or Africa?


"The doubtful decisions were always against us. We have to say it in capital letters, in three matches we had horrible refereeing. The man with the whistle knocked us. I want the referee committee to take a look and that the referee goes home just like us."


Herrera also went on to criticise FIFA for the kick-off time, as well as his team for sitting back once ahead and allowing Dutch pressure.
