I remember this world cup very well, and Moreno was awful! I felt pretty sure that he didnt want Italy to win.

There was no shocker for me that he was taken with cocain- this week- because he was suspended as a referee in his home country because of corruption.

He must be the worst. EVER!

He is taken with 6 kilos of HEROIN, and he was a referee in the FIFA world cup. And you are not "shocked"? Makes me wondering What kind of world do you live in?
