Vedran Corluka: We should just give Brazil the World Cup

The former Tottenham defender has slammed referee Yuichi Nishimura's performance in Brazil's game against Croatia.

According to reports from Sky Sports, Corluka believes that the officials favoured the World Cup hosts.

The Croatian said: "If this continues then no-one should play against Brazil. We should just give them the World Cup and everyone can go home. I think it is embarrassing.

"I have never seen a referee in a World Cup that doesn't speak English. He was trying to speak to the players in Japanese. It is ridiculous.

"Every 50/50 decision went to Brazilian players and I think Neymar elbowed Luka [Modric]. After that, he gives the penalty. We scored a goal, he disallowed a goal.

"It was quite embarrassing. It was the opening of the World Cup and you expect something more. He was keen to give the penalty. After that, he wanted to give something to us. It was quite funny. I don't think he should be allowed to referee another game."
