are you dumb?

He didn't elbow him intentionally. That was to cushion the impact. Without that, the one falling would be Kaka. And obviously Keita ran into him on purpose.

He does not deserve the card. He was trying to guard the ball. Watch the clip again. Moreover the Ivorian sport spokesperson has pleaded with FIFA to temper justice with mercy on Keita's action.

Kaka deserved not just a yellow, but also a straight red.

If Kaita got a straight red, why not Kaka?

Or are we in animal Farm?

I sympathise with them because they were both beaten down by their temperaments.

However, that is not the end of life.

But they both really deserved what they Got. REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED.

awful acting by keita, but serves Brazil right. Brazilians are known for play acting and feigning injuries remember Rivaldo holding his face when the ball actually hit his leg in the match against Turkey in the 2002 world cup and don't forget the worst acting ever by any player dead or alive (Goalkeeper Dida holding his face and rolling on the ground in agony when a spectator ran into the pitch and touched him in the cheeks.)

And what wrong in bracing yourself for impact? I think every human/animal does this, If something is coming towards your eye, why do you blink?

Well CIV has won the "We got Kaka sent off trophy" and they should celebrate that in Abidjan.

How you expect Brazil to beat Portugal without Kaka is yet to be seen. Let CIv beat Korea 200-0 while Portugal and Brazil play out a draw

so the offence is not running away from a deranged man who left the ball and decided to chase kaka ?

why should Kaka run from him moreso when the ball was not with him?

have u asked urself why Keita was barging into Kaka?

any reasonable reason?

that was a punishable offence cos kaka didnt have the ball with him

all he did was 'get d fck out of my way, i dont have the ball'

how is that an offence? why didnt Keita get cautioned for running at Kaka and for jumping to the ground like a leper?

dont u know theatrics on the field can get you sent off on the field?

that Keita is a disgrace to football

of course kaka deserved the 2nd yellow card that came to him, keita's drama is not different from the Greece's drama that gave Kaita an outright red card and we all condemned kaita,

Anyways, if anyone should be complaining of bad officiating. it should be CIV, with Luis Fabiano handball,

Anyways, its all irrelevant now, with the 7-0 victory of portugal, i dont CIV making up the goal difference

Goddamn Korea!

You just want to attack women sha. Most of the women here actually hold the same view as what you put up there i.e. Kaka didn't deserve the red. But you are too misogynistic to notice that.

The argument is that he did not know Keita was approaching him as it was his blind side. So how do you justify bracing urself for an impact you are not expecting? How about simply stepping out of the way. I mean if he had enough time to brace himself, he also had enough time to step out of the way. Its not like Keita was sprinting towards him now was he?

@ Bassetti

I am also disgusted with Keita's disgraceful play acting. So I am not justifying his action. However, IMO, there was intent to harm or provoke Keita with the raised elbow. Methinks, Kaka had observed that Keita had a vile temper and tried to "Kaitarize" the Ivorian player by provoking him. It backfired badly.

No you don't vaporize. But you also do not plant an elbow in his chest just before he barges into you either.

If Kaka was indeed unaware of the approaching Keita, he would have been pushed to the ground by the much heavier Ivorian, as he would have been off-balance. Take another look at that video critically and you will see that Kaka clearly saw Keita approaching and braced himself for the impact.

IT SEEMS THAT THERE ARE WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY TOO MANY WOMEN COMMENTING ON THIS THREAD WHO KNOW NOTHING ABOUT FOOTBALL. SOME OF THIS PEOPLE ONLY WATCH FOOTBALL DURING THE WORLD CUP. YOUR FOOTBALL WATCHING LICENSES SHOULD BE REVOKED. WHY DON'T YOU PEOPLE MAKE YOURSELVES USEFUL AND GO PREPARE SOMETHING IN THE KITCHEN AND LEAVE THE FOOTBALL TO THE MEN GEEZ. ANY BODY WHO SAW THAT WOULD KNOW THAT IT WAS KEITA WHO DESERVED THE CARD AND NOT KAKA. ANYWAY, DESPITE THE CHEATING, THE IVORY COAST IS OUT BECAUSE EVEN IF THEY BEAT NORTH KOREA, THE PORTUGUESE STILL HAVE A BETTER GOAL DIFFERENCE THAN COTE D'IVOIRE SO WITH ALL THE CHEATING, THEY ARE STILL OUT HA HA HA HA

1st question did Kaka raise a cynical elbow YES, even though d CIV player made a meal of d situation, d fact is dat d elbow from Kaka was to d guys chest nd not 2 his mouth all players especially d best e.g Ronaldo, Messi and Drogba all act. Nobody is talking about Faiano's hand ball which 2 me was d poorest decision in dat game

One. Kaka wasnt even looking in that direction, 2. Kakas reaction was a reflex action when someone bumps into you

3. Its shocking that Kaka that was walking was penalised while Keita that ran into him was left alone.

CIV have shot themselves in the foot, Lets see how Brazil would beat Portugal without Kaka

Yes, he sure did deserve the Red Card. What he did was intentional and wrong. And i don't think it's good for player of his caliber.

Of course he really deserved it. I wonder why the debate on this particular topic self. I must even confess that I'm disappointed in Kaka. I didn't expect such kind of a thing from a high profile player like him.

Kaka did deserve the yellow card for intent which is what is punished in football. Sani Keita did not make contact with the Greek player in the Nigeria/Greece game but still got a straight red for kicking out with intent and that was harsh. I must however add that I do not like Brazil at all for political reasons just like South Africa during the apartheid era. I have Afro Brazilian friends from Bahia who are mostly of African and even Yoruba origin and the stories they tell of the social apartheid in that country is akin to what obtained in South Africa during the apartheid era. Being the afro centric social animal that I am I have never supported Brazil in football or any other sports for that matter. I am sure that if most black people were aware of the way black people are treated in that country they would think twice before becoming Brazil groupies.

Take a look at this newsreel and see if you still feel the same way about Brazil.

99 percent of you guys are blind. the guy had a genuine reason to hold his face. let me break it down

1, ivorian player is totally oblivious to the presence of kaka so he is running towards him with his body all loose

2, he makes an impact with kakas body and while his body is stopped by the impact, his head is still moving at the velocity at which he was coming initially so that his head makes like a slingshot and crashes into kakas head. now after this explanation go back and review the video and watch how his body is stopped by the impact while his head launches into kakas face. it was this impact that he held his head about. he totally was not faking it. and kaka was wrong for sticking his elbow out

He definitely deserved the card but it doesn't change the fact that Keita's a cheat

First off, Kaka got a YELLOW card for his elbow, not a red.

Secondly, FIFA's rules punish intent and not damage done. So once you show any sign of violent conduct, you get a card.(this is why Sani Kaita got a red card although he didn't make contact with the Greek player in our game and also why David Beckham was sent off at France '98 for 'kicking out' against Diego Simeone)

Thirdly, the Brazilians had it coming all game. I think Dunga as the coach was nuisance all day. He was stoking up emotions all day with his theatrics, indirectly putting pressure on the officials and the players. The result was that fiasco that ensued.

Keita was running forward while looking back. He was going to bump into kaka before he knew where he was going, kaka was not even looking in the direction of Keita, he just saw him from the corner of his eye(he was still very much distracted) and put out his hand to stop him to avoid collision if not both off them would have fallen.

In my personal opinion,  I dont think its a card offence. The ref should av asked himself where  was keita running to in the first place.  I would never allow anyone just bump into me just like that.  Kaka guarded and protected himself simple.  As for those saying its a card offence I dont think any of you would stand looking ALOF while someone is running towards you to bump on you.

It seems everybody is giving Kaka the benefit of the doubt because he is a likeable star. The commentator on ESPN (not Efan Ekoku) at one point even said he has "angelic features". If this had been Lucio, Juan or some other Brazillian player, I doubt these many people will be coming to their defence.
