Robben should be banned from WC, EU and premier league for his acting and diving crime. He is a repeated offender and FIFA should not be tolerated.

Sorry, but these Robbens of the world, DO INJURE players, in this case the feelings of not just all the Mexican team, and not only of all the Mexican supporters but anybody who saw the match by Mexico vs. Holland. It was so shameful to see these stupid referees only giving yellow cards to the Mexican players and when the Dutch got away with diving, pulling the shirts etc...because they at first could NOT score against Mexico, so Robben and the Holland coach must have said, "Lets resort to plan B!, If we can NOT score against these Mexicans the clean way, well lets DIVE!!!!" and Robben and anybody with half a BRAIN knows that Robben should have gotten yellow cards and a red card for his shameful ACTING! Yes, nice soccer soccer, but BETTER acting ones! That is how soccer is won in THIS World Cup! Act like you were hurt, blame it on the other team, hope the referee is TOO stupid to know that you are just ACTING and GOOOOOOOOL!!! Holland should have lost with HONOR against Mexico rather than WIN without any honor, with out any morals. But, I like Robben, why?? He has little hair, like me! Anyway, if COSTA RICA can play great against this Orange Wave without the stupid referees only supporting the Dutch side, then it will be an interesting match!

Robben only dives, the other "superstars" like Neymar and co, dive AND kick. A dive might produce an unwarranted free kick or pk, but it doesn't injure players. The only player who as far as I know doesn't resort to theatrics is Messi....and he will be a legend, not the likes of Robben, Neymar, Ronaldo or Muller. Also don't forget that attackers have to resort to diving as not to get their legs kicked to pieces by over eager defenders, it's like a warning... Robben is the only player who admitted that he took a dive.....most players aren't that generous! The yellow card James received and the following free kick and goal by brazil was created by diving...Robben's pk was warranted.
