Liverpool attacker Kuyt: Webb favoured Spain

Liverpool attacker Dirk Kuyt turned on English ref Howard Webb after Holland's World Cup final defeat to Spain.

Liverpool attacker Dirk Kuyt turned on English ref Howard Webb after Holland's World Cup final defeat to Spain.

Webb brandished 14 yellow cards and one red - a record for a final - in a fiery encounter which saw Andres Iniesta's extra-time goal secure a 1-0 win for Spain.

The South Yorkshire official was booed by Dutch fans at the final whistle and Liverpool forward Kuyt said: "We are angry that we lost because we came so close. I know you cannot blame others, but the referee favoured Spain.

"We had many more yellow cards than we deserved. That ultimately cost us the cup."
