Ahh, England. “The Swiss referee who disallowed a goal by England in their Euro 2004 quarter-final with Portugal says he has been put under police protection.

He has been accused by England’s tabloid press of being responsible for the national team’s defeat.

Mr Meier said he found the “overheated” reaction from the English media and fans hard to reconcile with the image he used to have of the country.
“I was always of the opinion that fair play in England is really important, and also the respect from the officials, but I never expected this reaction,” he said.” (BBC)
