MILAN - Italian Roberto Rosetti quit
refereeing on Thursday but said his decision had nothing to do
with allowing a clearly offside goal in the World Cup.
The 42-year-old, who took charge of the Euro 2008 final, has
opted to retire and become the referee designator for Serie B
less than two weeks after Carlos Tevez's goal was allowed to
stand in Argentina's 3-1 win over Mexico in the last 16.
"The disappointment of the World Cup did not influence my
decision," Rosetti, who was not kept on for the quarter-finals,
said in a statement.
