    That's what I saw, too. Nothing on the level of Mou's brutish Madrid tactics of hacking legs at every opportunity, intended as body blows to weaken the opponent. Netherlands fouls were simply disruptive stop-play tactical fouls (as Barça uses to break up play in the opponent half when ball is turned over), used to slow counterattacks, or where the Dutch player was otherwise at a disadvantage.

    He touched it with his shoulder so it shouldn't have counted anyway. It would've been awesome to see what the ref would've done though, I don't think he saw the extra touch.
