Soccer Update - No Crucial Officiating Failures?

Looks as if we had a day today where any obvious officiating failures were not crucial.
The sport is getting more and more ridiculous though.
For example, I do not think either of the England-Germany or Argentina-Mexico games SHOULD have had a different outcome, but the obvious and egregious officiating failures played profound roles in the outcome of the games. The second half of England-Germany would have been utterly different, and maybe have given the old coots a chance, had the calls been correct.
How in the end can one really take the sport seriously with this knowledge?
All this would have been OK when there was no way to refute on-the-field mistakes.
We are well past that.
