Rodriguez: The referee didn't help a lot


Tournament leading scorer Rodriguez, who has scored six goals in five games, feels the referee turned a blind eye to some incidents that affected his team.

"Unfortunately, the referee didn't help a lot," said the playmaker, who received rough treatment by the Brazilian players.

"I think the referee influenced the game a lot, but that is how it is and we need to look forward," Rodriguez said.

"We are sad because we wanted to go further in the World Cup. That is what hurts most, but Brazil are a good team," he added.
