Arjen Robben hit back at his critics after a tough quarter-final with Costa Rica. “I was rugby tackled from all sides.”
The Dutch maestro had been lambasted for going down too easily in this World Cup, especially after he confessed to diving in the 2-1 win over Mexico.
“I’m tired of all this bull,” an angry Robben told NOS after a 0-0 draw was decided on penalties.
“I was rugby tackled from all sides today.”
Costa Rica Coach Jorge Luis Pinto had told the referee to “watch out” for Robben dives before the game.
