Mexico Scores Two Goals In First Half, But Both Are Disallowed On Controversial Offsides Calls (VIDEOS)
Are you watching Mexico versus Cameroon live with us? You should be — it’s been an insane 45 minutes so far. Mexico was literally inches away from being up 2-0, but two controversial offsides calls by the refs meant that both were disallowed.

Really close call there, especially after the deflection, but that seems like it should have counted. ESPN’s Taylor Twellman called this “awful, awful officiating” when the halftime show began, and Ruud van Nistelrooy agreed.
Needless to say, Cameroon is lucky to be tied 0-0 at the half.
