I thought the Swiss were supposed to be neutral

Porugal 2 - England 2
(Portugal win 6-5 on penalties)

Swiss referee Urs Meier was wrong to rule out the late Sol Campbell header which should have given England victory in the 90th minute.

Most of the game he appeared biased in his decisions, and he actualy over-ruled his linesman - who gave the goal - to deny England the win.

Yet another comp that England go out on penalties. What's more Sol Campbell had a goal disallowed in the England Argentina game (where Beckham got sent off) in the world cup France '98. That game finished 2-2, and England lost 4-3.
