01:54 PM ET 07.03 | The Brazilian side thrashed the Spanish side in the Confederations Cup final. There was some criticism during the game of the referees being particularly harder on the Spanish team. For instance, when Neymar scored and ran to the stands to celebrate Lambeau Field style the commentators pointed out that it should've been a yellow card but it was overlooked. His teammate Xavi Alonso was less critical and put the blame squarely on the shoulders of the Spanish side.

losing 3-0 and complaining because a player shoulda gotten a yellow card during his celebration? Poor babies.

A whining crying soccer player? I'm shocked...

Was he flailing his arms and taking a five yard swan dive while he wailed and complained?

I agree. Thank goodness soccer is the only sport where players/coaches complain about the refs! Who has time for that?
