SPORT: ROBBEN APOLOGISES FOR DIVING DURING MEXICO GAME
Arjen Robben has apologised for diving in the Netherlands World Cup last-16 clash with Mexico – but insists he didn’t do it for their winning penalty.
The former Chelsea winger went down and won a spot-kick in the dying moments of the game, which helped them progress to the quarter-finals courtesy of a 2-1 victory.
Mexico coach Miguel Herrera has called for the referee who gave the decision to be sent home from the tournament.
The second round continues with two more games today.
