Paulinho should have been booked - Graham Poll

The former referee believes that Brazil have been getting away with foul play during this World Cup.

Graham Poll said: "Time and time again the dangerous [Colombian playmaker James] Rodriguez was blocked, tripped and body checked. Yet, Paulinho and his Brazil team-mates escaped sanction. What the Tottenham man has to do to get a yellow card at this tournament I do not know.

"Frustratingly when Rodriguez committed a minor foul, he was cautioned adding fuel to the fire that Brazil are enjoying every perceived advantage of being a home team. If this continues they must surely lift their sixth World Cup. That David Luiz scored the winner from the free-kick added insult to injury," Poll told the Daily Mail.
