Mexico Robbed Of 2 Goals After Referee Disallows Goals Against Cameroon [PHOTOS]

Here we go again. In only the second match of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the tournament has been plagued by poor refereeing decisions.

Colombian referee Wilmar Roldan disallowed two perfectly fine goals by Mexico in the first half against Cameroon. In both decisions, the match officials canceled the goals because they thought the player was offside. However, TV replays showed that the footballers were onside, and the goals should have counted.

After yesterday’s blatant dive by Brazilian striker Fred that resulted in a penalty for Brazil, which was the turning point of the game, questions have to be asked whether FIFA is doing everything that is necessary to make the game as modern as possible. When it comes down to the difference between a team winning or losing a World Cup game, it’s more important than ever to make sure that decisions are reached fairly.

In the first disallowed goal, you can clearly see in the screengrab below that the Mexico players were onside when the cross was taken.

Meanwhile, for the second disallowed goal, when the Cameroon defender headed the ball from the corner, you can see that Giovani Dos Santos was onside.
