His elbow in the face was absolutely vicious. It seemed deliberately
designed to hurt. He deserves to get penalised further.

Anyway I missed the first 20 mins of the match...was he provoked in
some way beforehand?

No provocation.  The only reason I can guess is that he got frustrated
at his teammate for gifting the U.S. a goal just a few short minutes
prior.

Nothing that I saw on camera, but who knows what happened off the
ball. Thing is, McBride has never struck me as the type of player to
get into niggling matches with other players.

From the BBC....
-------------------------------
McBride was amazed by the manner in which De Rossi lashed out saying:
"I thought he was going to shatter my face."

However, he revealed the midfielder had apologised after the match, an
act he described as "classy".

I'm sure he will.

No, no excuses.

McBride always struck me as a class act, from his behaviour on the pitch
and his interviews. During the rest of the match he didn't retaliate in
any way.

That wasn't his first time, in the after game interview he boldly said "I
didn't want to hurt him", not a word of apologize (neither to US neither to
his own team), he is just a thug. Anyway, after listening to Lippi's
comments, I'm almost sure that De Rossi WC end here, one way or another.

He personally apologised to B McB after the game. McB said it was very
"classy"of him.

If McBride can have enough class to accept the apology, surely you can
let it go.

Didn t see anything. But we dont here or see everything. But I hope he
gets at least 5 games suspension.

He was just hoping to reduce his punishment, he'll get a long suspension
anyway and it is a good thing for italian team as we have better players for
that role.

Agree, he did us a favour.

No so much better players, but more level headed.

As an italian, I cannot help feeling embarrassed by what Derossi did on
the pitch. I am pleased to read of his apology to McBride, but I'd like
to see the italian soccer federation also do a classy thing, by asking
Derossi to leave the WC immediately, without even waiting for FIFA's
decision.

Cheers,

Massimo

That was my guess too.

I slo-mo'ed the incident innumerable times, and saw his reaction when
he raised his hands at the 'ref in astonishment. I thought maybe he
had made a mistake, but then immediately you'll notice he smiles a
disgusting kind of smile, cynical beyond belief.

I thought Nesta's expression, just behind him, looking at him full-on,
said it all. He was incredulous at De Rossi for doing that.

Possibly.

Blatter (and Beckenbauer) was at the match. But I can't see more than
3/4 at most, in reality.

Thanks, Massimo. There's not one of us who hasn't felt embarrassed as
a fellow national, for what others like us do.

I heard that Lippi was furious at De Rossi on GLOBO, so it may be a
moot point sending him home, overall.

That's debatable (I think a 100% Gattuso is better than DeRossi).

Quote:

being level headed is not an optional here, if he did something like that in
a final match it would be safer for him to go seek asylum in santodomingo :)
