Are you cynical bastards blind? Estrada's knee clearly knocks Torres' right boot across so that it catches on the back of his left leg and that's what trips him. Cleeeeeeeeearly. Why the hell else do you think Estrada also stumbles a little himself if there was no contact there?

It did seem like it might have been accidental but that doesn't stop it from being a foul. Spain were on the attack and Torres was moving into the penalty area so it was definitely a yellow card offense, and because Estrada was already on one yellow the second is what got him sent off.

There's been some pussy lame-ass diving at this tournament for sure, like the Italians against New Zealand, but this one of Torres isn't an example of it.
