Simunic was booked first in the 61st minute, than in the 89th minute and finally in the 93rd minute when Poll showed him red card. After second yellow card, Simunic realised that the referee had not shown him a red card and he stayed on the pitch.
After the match, Graham Poll said:
In the 89th minute when I produced the yellow, I wrote down the right jersey number but the wrong name. I had inadvertantly given the yellow to the Australian number 3, Craig Moore. This is the first time something like this has happened to me in my 26 year long career.After 2006 World Cup in Germany, Graham Poll, whose nickname is The Thing from Tring, retired from international refereeing. In his career he refereed at two World Cup tournaments, Euro 2000 and the 2005 World Club Championship.
