Players cheated at World Cup

FIFA has made it official, players cheated at the World Cup. Their chosen format of cheating, fake injuries.

A report says that 145 on pitch injuries happened in Germany. Of those injuries, 58% of the players turned out not to be injured.

No word on how many of those 'injuries' happened during the Italy-US match.

The number of injuries per match was down to 2.3 from 2.7 in 2002.

I'm sure some of the fake injuries were not cheating as much as players just not sure if they were hurt. However, even with that taken into consideration, there was too much time spent waiting on the medical units.

So if these players cheated, are there going to be any consequences? Any answer but 'no' is wrong.
