    • Its true. It really sucks to get eliminated, with this feeling. If it was a fare game, it would feel better. But it was’nt. I am a proud Bosnian girl, and the world cup gave us hope. From the war in the 1990’s, to that the whole country almost drowned. Our place in the world cup showed the world that we are’nt weak. We can play, we can play good. Even great. But this… I cried. The whole country cried. It felt like my heart was chopped into a billion pieces, and the sorrow is mountain high. I deeply, deeply hope that there will be a brighter time for us. That we can finally say; “We have peace, and no worries” but that won’t happen so quickly. It will take many, many years. I just hope it will ever happen

      • As an Iranian whose team has to play against Bosnia tomorrow, I feel bad about your team being eliminated so early while you didn’t deserve it. Nigeria won just because of the referee. Of course, as an Iranian, I was hoping from the beginning to see my team go to the next stage & not Bosnia or Nigeria (just as you were hoping the same for your team); but that should happen in a fair game & not because of FIFA’s corruption & ref’s mistakes. It’s a shame how the referee’s have been supporting bigger names, starting from the penalty on Fred & then the penalty that wasn’t taken for us against Argentina & Nigeria-Bosnia match & so on! Anyway, I hope tomorrow we’ll see a nice & fair match.

    • Players have a right to play dirty, but referee needs keep the game fair. You did not do your job and let’s hope you do not get chance to be referee ever again. You are the worst thing that happened to soccer. FIFA also has to understand that we do not live in Stone Age and technology is our friend. Every other sport uses technology as deciding tool, I am not sure why soccer is not on board. To send a country home knowing that result was altered is almost violation of team’s rights to participate in fair soccer competition. In my opinion Bosnian team should consult an attny to see what can be done about this situation. Shame.

    • Good luck for both of team. I hope that game will be friendly and high quality it’s just important for Iranian. don’t listen to somebody we are not enemy for other people. Bad guys are every where.I hope you and your people will be happy ever.

  1. Surely Nishimura. Of course, for Bosniak portals linking massively to this site, vote will go to O’Leary, Bosniaks are champions in online voting.

  2. Peter O’Leary should never EVER again be able to whistling any contest!!! Worst referee EVER! How much money did you got from Nigeria???

  3. Football for hope??? What hope??? Hope not to get cheated and robbed by the referees… Bastard o’leary is the last drop, killer of the dream, butcher of the beautiful game… fifa need to have emergency meeting and change the score to 1:1 to SHOW that they still practice fair play…

  4. Bosnia and Herzegovina got eliminated because of the referee Peter O Leary hi put all Bosnien Nations to safer because his arrogance shame you self FIFA

  5. O’Leary damaged Bosnia for it was NOT a offside!It’s his fault that they lost the game against Nigeria! FIFA shouldn’t let this happen, what about fair play FIFA??

  6. Peter O’Leary FIFE is a full mistake. The clear goal he dismissed against Bosnia and become WORST JUDGE in the history of Fifa

  7. I cannot believe that this things are happening to FIFA, especially on WC!!! O’Leary how much they payed you?Go back to Zeland and solve your dioptry problem. I hope you will shame all life for thing you did to Bosnia and Herzegovina. Shame on you and FIFA!!

  8. And just when I thought the japanese judge was the worst ever came the one from new zealand… It’s really a shame for fifa.. Maybe they don’t pay well, because the judges don’t have money to buy some glasses..

  9. They just need to screw Croatia once more .I just do not know where they find these guys.Mexico Croatia Iran and who knows who als is next to be screwd by bad refs.

  10. I do not know but should examine this trial unless blater involved and fifa suspected, going to a judge who apparently stole Bosnia and Herzegovina and much reprezatacija that were stolen bass FIFA has alluded to the offenses with both hands, which is pe Peter O’Leary dosudijo not you please exclusion of fife for all time ..

  11. Fifa has made a circus from the World Cup. Why do we even need to get involved and play when it is not fair play? Why is not used a technology that could confirm everything that the judges say? And if that sins may be a mistake right away can repaired. This for me is more like a big circus that horrifies me. Destroying the beautiful game called futbal.

    • FIFA HAS A SERIOUS PROBLEM……………………MAKE READY AND CLEAN FOR FRANCE , VIVRE LA FRANCE!!!!! MICHEL PLATINI DO GOOD JOB…fh

  12. The one thing I can’t understand is why the F money became more important that sport (football in this case). My national football team got kicked out of the World Cup due to mistake of some unknown fisherman from New Zealand. By canceling Džeko’s goal and not “noticing” the clear foul that was done on Spahić, he had proven to us that someone paid really big money just to prevent Bosnia-Herzegovina to get tie or even to win. I hate to admit, but FIFA is one of the most corrupted organisation in the World.
    And one more thing, F-You Peter O’Leary I hope that you are happy now when you got your money after eliminating Bosnians out of the cup. F-You!!

  14. In the name of the game=in the name of the referee Piter O’Leary..FIFA shame on you. Fair Play never be on this way.

  15. It gets me upset that the referee called offside being behind the players. It wasn’t his call to take should of come from the lines men. I hope he loses his job because clearly he is bad at it!

  16. Peter O Leary is by far the worst that the world’s has ever seen. At this level. There should be no big mistakes. Terrible. Disappointing.

  17. shame on you and your referee FIFA shame on you and your referee FIFA shame on you and your referee FIFA shame on you and your referee FIFA shame on you and your referee FIFA shame on you and your referee FIFA shame on you and your referee FIFA shame on you and your referee FIFA shame on you and your referee FIFA shame on you and your referee FIFA shame on you and your referee FIFA shame on you and your referee FIFA shame on you and your referee FIFA shame on you and your referee FIFA shame on you and your referee FIFA shame on you and your referee FIFA shame on you and your referee FIFA shame on you and your referee

  18. You will continue to keep “them” honest?! What a joke! Can you keep yourself honest? O’Leary will be just a scapegoat for FIFA “games”. He did as he was instructed.

  19. He Robbed of Bosnia but not only Bosnia look back in his History His Job is not take who he like Nigeria or others his job to do perfact by soccer low

  20. Hope he never judges again, like ever. We got eliminated and its all because of one bastard who doesnt know how to do his job. Shame on you so called “referee” and same goes to Nigeria who probably had their hands in this too. Shame.

  21. Wow, what a amature! It seams to me that he doesn’t lnow the basic soccer rules, or he got paid big bucks for this game. All I know is tgat for me and my family the World Cup is over. Such a shame to know that FIFA is truly corupt 🙁

  22. Please somebody stop this amateur ! he is football killer ! if you call this fair game than this is such a shame for fifa !

  23. How stupid are you people saying Bosniaks.. Morons, clear evidence of
    MR. O LEARY celebrating with Nigerian goalie after the match.. What a set up!!

  24. Amidst the avalanche of goals and delightfully absurd matches has been some pretty terrible officiating at the 2014 World Cup and the Group F match between Nigeria and Bosnia-Herzegovina suffered for it. About 20 minutes into the match, a goal from Bosnia striker Edin Dzeko (wearing white in the image below) was disallowed for offside, but replays showed that the goal should have been allowed to stand.

  25. Go back to you biology and tree hugging!
    Hope you have talented children, who will get their dreams turned into nightmares by same kind of corrupt scumbag like you!
    Go home and do what you do best, insemination of your merino mistress!

  26. If FIFA wants to promote fair play and not ruining the beauty of football, they should put the video help ref to assist during the game. FIFA became just a business, the game is ruined!

  27. It’s so sad that FIFA was responsible for such a unfair game. They gave us 3 minutes over time with a horrible bad call. If that happened to the USA they would never get away with it. It sad that in the eyes of the world we still don’t matter, the goal was boy even mentioned in FIFA news. But surely we will be back and this time stronger even with unfair advantages we will be prepared!

  28. fifa world cup must be fair play with no mistakes its the best fifa game ever and so much mistakes this should not happend not on this compatiion . u are ambarised for all world

  29. Thank you miser f-ingfisherman from f-ing zealand. I hope that your career is over, but its not metter, metter is that you finish nice footbal dream.

  30. FIFA CLEAR YOUR NAME.
    Let Bosnia play, billion ppl saw the GOAL and the mistake. If you ignore this then there is no fair game. you made GOAL TECHNOLOGY what we NEED is a JUDGE technology!!!!!! CHANGE THE RESULT ON BOSNIA NIGERIA OR LET THEM PLAY ONE MORE TIME

  31. It doesn’t matter where’re you from. I am from Poland and still thinking O’Leary’s wrong decisions have eliminated a better team from the cup. Period.
    This is ridiculous, modern football is entirely driven by corruption, oil, money laundring and sport betting and still one person on the field decides what team goes further.
    Modern football needs a ‘challenge’ option as seen on rugby or volleyball games otherwise it’s all about the money and ref.

  32. Peter O’Leary canceled the goal for Bosnia and Herzegovina, which was true, real and without any mistake, he also did not recognise the faul made on Spahic just before Nigeria scored the goal!!! Shame on you Peter, you do not deserve to be a judge. Peter, you made Millions of people who are poor, and who’s lifes are ruined by war, even more misrable!!! For Bosnian this world cup was the only reason for happiness and joy, and you made sure it ended!!!!!! Give Bosnia the rightful goal that they deserve!!!!

  33. Shame on Milorad Mazic for his unfair and unprofessional behaviour during the Iran vs Argentina…. How could he miss a clear penalty???

  34. They would never ever try and pull this kind of enormous amounts of crap on USA team , they only do it to smaller country’s ( Peter O’Leary ) is a fine example of a piece of shit and should be fired from the World Cup and have forbidden to have any further involvement in soccer or any other sport for that matter

  35. I needed to think it through because it’s very strong competition. Brazil vs Croatia and Bosnia vs Nigeria and Mexico vs Cameroon. These matches had the worst referees, I think.

  36. After watching O’Leary’s performance in that game I was embarrassed to be a New Zealander!!!! I hope FIFA save my country from more embarrassment and not let him referee another game at this tournament (Also, on behalf of New Zealanders who do know the rules of football we are sorry to all Bosnian fans out there for one idiot ruining your world cup)

  37. Where is Bosnia’s goal, where is Iran’s penalty ???!! that was the most obvious penalty in the history of the world cup ?? where is Portugal penalty ?? FIFA you are corrupt,, Just say Brazil is winner and don’t hurt people’s feeling

  38. Peter O’Leary is reason why Bosnia is going home. It is obvious that some kind of dirty business is happening in FIFA. Technology is used in every other sport as a deciding tool, I am not sure why soccer is not on board. Bigger issue here is that Bosnian team did not get a chance to participate in a fair soccer competition. FIFA should investigate and prosecute corrupt members and Bosnian team should find an attny. They need to be compensated for unfair treatment. I almost forgot, Peter O’Leary is a worst thing that happened to soccer . You are one big thurd O’Leary.

  39. Of course mliard mazic is the worst referee in this tournament he was 12th teammate of Argentina against Iran.

  40. milorad mazich
    راي همه ايرانيا ميلورا مازيك هس به افتخا ر ايران كه جلو ارژانتين با اشتباه داوري باخت

  41. I must say that we’re protesting on behalf of Iran
    And request inspection and technical review Iran – Argentina
    we have And because of the many requests dealing referee errors With the referee,
    the offending team loses a major factor in Iran have
    This page is a page for those who have objected to this question

    • milorad mazic shame on you . Fifa is an unfair organisation . Milorad Mazic is the worst referre because of unfair judgment in Iran vs Argantina , yaeh .

  42. Milorad Mazic is the worst referee after Peter O’leary
    Group F means group Fuck! 95% of people are angry about 2 refrees that judged in this group!
    Iran and Bosnia was better than refrees judged!

  43. Milorad Mazic needs to be thrown out of FIFA. He took ball possession from Dejagah by stand in front of the counter attack, and to make things worse DIDN’T CALL THE PENALTY. The top media agencies and even FIFA has agreed his decision was flawed.

  44. All of the refs are bad they are biased and allow the players to potentially seriously injure each other and destroy their ability to continue to play and earn a living. Also these are some of the most talented and skilled athletes in the world why cheapen themselves and the game by cheating. They know the rules as well as the refs why act infantile and not like the pros they are. Leave the flopping and dirty tricks to pro wrestling. If acting is so important change professions. Use technology and the replay the acts after the game to access penalties and fines. Bring back honesty and honor to the beautiful game not shame to a fake pseudo game. Let teams win on their skill and ability to play the game not the ref! Let the refs keep the players safe and enforce the rules. Add more line refs as well as reviews of the recorded game for the simulations and infractions access fines high enough to make it felt by the highly paid players. The World Cup is Golden let’s make the games golden as well and not tarnished by cheap tricks and treachery.

  45. FROM THE EDITOR: DON’T JUST TYPE THE NAME OF MILORAD MAZIC – YOU NEED TO VOTE IN THE POLL TO THE TOP LEFT OF YOUR SCREEN AND BELOW THE STORY AS WELL AS COMMENTING!

  46. In my point of view Fifa must be more careful and vigilant before appointing any referee to such a sensitive position.

    There needs be more research done before hand with regards to the honesty, dignity and above all, fairness of such person for this position!

    • Voters. Please cast a vote in the online poll at the top left of your scene and leave a comment saying more than just the referee’s name or the comment will be deleted..

  47. Did you know that O’Leary has never judged matches in the senior competition. Thus, a total amateur by FIFA that led them to do the dirty work.

  48. just shame on you, YOU are the worst referee I ever seen in my life, but your name will be remembered as a BIG ZERO!!!

  49. Marco Antonio Rodríguez is he blind or just plain stupid? He did not see Suarez bite anyone because the whole world did and he did not do anything but just ruin the odds for the Italians with the unfair red card to favor the odds for Uruguay. I sincerely hope he burns in hell!!!!!

  50. milord mazic is the worst referee.he motive to fail iran in the game with argentina and useless effort to pass struggle team iran to go.

  51. Milorad Mazic biased mistakes (most of them seemed even intentional) can never be matched by any other referee !!! He was the player number 12 for Argentina and he knew that himself !!! Every body is sensing the FIFA Mafia more than ever in these set of games. Even Diego Maradonna who is Argentinian himself, was so mad of FIFA sponsors that do not like small teams to win and they are controlling every thing 🙁 So shameful that every body is playing fairly but FIFA 🙁

  52. Milorad Mazic i just want to know how could u control the game like that ? when our players plaid with their pride for their country iran u ignored our PENALTI and put the corner flag on it place when the argentinian player took it off from it place and u ACTED normally with out any cards and like nothing happened this is unforgivable .

  53. Milorad Miazic is the worst referee in the World Cup 2014. As he has done in the game bitween Iran v Argantina . Shame on you.

  54. 100% agree with you, he save argentina’s ass big time , I mean big time. I just want to say people all around the world are not stupid !!!!!!

  55. Milorad mazic is a human and wrong work in the blood of human,but I think he should say «I stand corrected»

So fifa , u wants Nigeria In newt level cause Nigeria is not stronge as more as Iran Ande Bosnia!!! You can say Brazil is the champion from now!!! Shame on u fifa!

  61. milord mazic is the worst referee.he motive to fail iran in the game with argentina and useless effort to pass struggle team iran to go.

  62. Shame on Milorad Mazic for his unfair and unprofessional behaviour during the Iran vs Argentina…. How could he miss a clear penalty???

  64. what the hell is wrong with milorad mazic? he should have been fair! people aren’t stupid. be glad about your large sum of money you got to play dirty and cheat. I hope that a few extra dollars is worth to be hated by people.

  65. milord mazic is the worst referee.he motive to fail iran in the game with argentina and useless effort to pass struggle team iran to go.

  66. milord mazic is the worst referee.he motive to fail iran in the game with argentina and useless effort to pass struggle team iran to go.

  67. Milorad Mazic should never ever again be able to whistling any matches. the worst referee ever. How much you got paid from Argentina!!!!!
    Milorad you piece of deep sh*t

  68. Yet when a striker has the chance to score and is stopped by such an evident foul, a penalty could serve justice, otherwise it is not a fair decision, right?
    If in doubt, the referee can always consult with his linemen and even the 4th referee to ensure he makes the right decision.

  69. Milorad mazic
    بدترين داور جام بود وناداوري كرد در حق ي ملت
    ايران اين بازي را برد اگر داوري در حده جام جهاني ميزاشتن مطعن بودم نتيجه هم به نفع ايران تمام ميشد از ارژانتين بهتر بوديم وبه اميد خدا از گروه ميريم بالا تا چشم داور بوسن نژاد پرست كور بشه به فرانسه ميخوريم و ان هم ميزنيم وبه اميد خدا ٨ تيم جام ميشيم.

  70. milord mazic is the worst referee.he motive to fail iran in the game with argentina and useless effort to pass struggle team iran to go.

  71. A referee should be according game not famous people’s names. So the result was not correct and he was too weaks in referee.
    who?
    Answer ; Milord mazic

  72. Milorad Mazic is the worst referee in the world, he was an obvious fan of Argentina & didn’t get the penalty. & also he didn’t give the card to that Argentinian player who pushed the flag ! these are not mistakes, he did it on purpose.

  73. milardo mazic is thr worst referee in this tournament becouse of unfair jugment, he is blind, or he dosent know what is the PENALTY??????????

  74. milord mazic is the worst referee.he motive to fail iran in the game with argentina and useless effort to pass struggle team iran to go

  75. milorad mozic committed a fatal mistake(intentional?). If he let Iran have its penalty, Iran would most probably not loose the game, or even win Argantina.
    Iranians will never forget his mistake and his name.

  76. milord mazic is the worst referee.he motive to fail iran in the game with argentina and useless effort to pass struggle team iran to go.

  77. African & Asian countries should boycott the games, because the referees and the linesman regularly make calls against them …. almost religiously!!!!

  78. FIFA isn’t honest with people .FIFA let worst referee change the games as they wish according to their taste.FIFA is rediculous I hate FIFA.FIFA is the worst this world cup is fake

  79. Shame on Milorad Mazic for his unfair and unprofessional behaviour during the Iran vs Argentina…. How could he miss a clear penalty???

    is the worst referee in this tournament he was 12th teammate of Argentina against Iran.

  80. thanks for this opportunity are these referees enemies to black teams or, that ugly guy called Rivera giving Greece

    a penalty which they never deserved, y shld i even worry coz its not going to take it any way.

  81. My African brothers its better u can back home and just play afcon coz its more fun than were every move u take iz penalized while for other countries every wrong move is a right one just saying. hmmmmmmmmmmmm

  82. why isn’t carlos vera higher up?!?!?! that ivory coast match was the most disgusting display of refereeing i saw in a while… not to mention they showed no replays for the questionable calls against ivory coast… that was most suspicious! Then to top it all off… a wrong called penalty in the last minute and blowing off the game before the stipulated injury time… nasty business!

  83. The referee from today’s Mexico v. Netherlands match was not only blind, he was dumb. I went to referee classes and the very first day your told “don’t call a penalty in the last few minutes” and if that wasn’t bad enough, Arjen Robben clearly dived. Robben should have been cautioned an Pedro Porenca should not referee another game. I don’t care who wins the cup now, just as long as it’s not Netherlands. Any team who has to work so hard to cheat does not deserve the cup. And referees that have no idea what they are doing, shouldn’t referee the World Cup.

    • Robben even admitted that he took a dive yesterday, at least he admits it, not many players would do that…
      Terrible ref.. he didn’t give Robben a penalty when he was fouled and did when he wasn’t. Hope not to see him for more games..

    • He didnt dive… he clearly got hit so its a penalty. And it doesnt mtter in what minute your give a pebalty…..

  84. Ben Williams from Australia… this pos ref turned the game around for Greece… I srsly hope this is his last game as a ref…

    1.
    65:35 He deliberately sent Costa Rica’s central defender off for normal defensive play through giving two yellow cards at seperate times, this put CR down to defend their 1 goal lead against greece with only 10 men..
    2.
    55:18 Booked CR’s reserve goalie on the bench for stating the obvious when a greek defender clearly had had a deliberate hand ball in the greek penalty area.. 53:16 and 54:36 footballorgin Replay match(Filmon)…
    3.
    56:48 Greece gets a (free) free kick by jumping up on the back of Brian Ruiz..
    4.
    He ignored greek players trying to injure Joel Campbell and CR’s goal-keeper, Keylor Navas.. Greece was trying to make injuries to get them substituted..
    5.
    Booked CR’s goal keeper Keylor Navas.. For timewasting??? to get him nervous and possibly get him sent off later on.. the ref booked him after 14-15 measly seconds… counted from 88:51 and then the refs whistle.

    Greece were filming, tackling and running and pushing CR players down, but noone was sent off???
    During breaks and through the game, the ref conversated with greek players and trainer several times.

    Before doing his first WC game.. which he is apparantly just doing for free…. He was a high school gym teacher..

  85. Mark geiger saved France … disallowed goal which ws NOT offiside.. missed a red card for a horrible foul… hope you like the money on your bank account… fool

  86. The referees stole Mexico all the time during the World Cup. The apotheosis of bad refereeing was the invented penalty against Holland. Guess what? Holland vs Brazil great invented spectacular final. I don’t buy it anymore.

    • Salma, too bad it was a legitimate penalty. Go actually watch the footage before you say he dove.. it actually was a penally and Holland should have had another one in the first half….

  87. MARCO ANTONIO RODRIGUEZ OF MEXICO IS A PIECE OF CRAP WHO ROBBED ITALY OF THEIR CHANCE TO ADVANCE IN WORLD CUP 2014. HE IS A CORRUPT AND SCUMMY LOSER WHO SHOULD BE BANNED FROM REFEREEING FOR LIFE!!! HE WAS BRIBED OBVIOUSLY TO MAKE THINGS GO URUGUAY WAY. LMAO WHO DIDN’T KNOW THEY’D GO HOME AFTER THEIR NEXT GAME?!! F U RODRIGUEZ…AND SUAREZ!!! YOU’LL BOTH BURN IN HELL!!!

  88. Carballo ref was terrible. Brasil most likely bribed him to go all out against Rodrigez and the Seléccion. In his words: “They hit me 10 times and the first time I hit them you card me?!”

    • As long as people continue to spend billions to watch FIFA’s games, FIFA will not see the error of their ways, and continue their corrupt and un-sportsman conduct. If you want FIFA to return to being an ethical organization that is interested in fair-play, hit them where it hurts, their pockets. If the vast majority of people boycott FIFA’s games until reforms are implemented, you will see change faster than speed of light.

  89. they are all no good, this is the worst calls I have ever seen in my life,
    look at Brazil against Netherlands in the 3rd place game, the score should have been 3-3 ,
    Netherlands had 2 hand ball in the Brazilian box that is 2 Penalty plus Oscar got fouled in the box and he got a card for diving, I have never seen such foolishness and blindness from referees.
    we need instant replay like in Cricket , look at how fast the replay is when you watching a game on TV. if the players appeal is should go to a television referee who is inside in front of the screen.
    Make the game fair and this will stop all the unnecessary fouling, this will only mean the game will last another 15 mins extra, which is ok.

  90. Carballo should not even be part of the FIFA any more. He is the most bias peace of trash referee I’ve ever seen.

  91. FIFA needs to be boycotted. Period. “Brazil-Columbia” and many other games were just too much for spectators. Referees are insignificant. They hold the power and too many times looks ridicule. The worst is that they can’t be challenged. That is none sense. They have to much power. Only Technology might save the sport. The performance of Italian referee in 2014 final is ashamed. It remember me of France-Germany in 1982 in Mexico. It seems that luck is a bit too much of an ingredient to win a cup.

  92. Mažić is overhated, you people don’t know #@!% about football! He did an amazing job in this World Cup, but yes, he did make a big mistake, BUT IT DIDN’T AFECT THE MATCH.

    • So him not whistling a clear PK in a 0-0 match didn’t have a negative effect?
      If he correctly whistles the PK. Iran possibly scores, Iran possibly wins the match, and Iran quite possibly qualifies for the 2nd round. So yeah, his failure was a game changer.
      He sucks and FIFA should have selected Damir Skomina instead of Milorad Mazic.
