Kewell criticises FIFA's double standards

Harry Kewell has risked the wrath of FIFA by criticising world football's governing body for failing clamp down on inconsistent refereeing that favours the bigger teams.

Kewell, who was shown a red card for handball against Ghana, has suggested that players from the smaller nations are being penalised more heavily at the World Cup than the bigger names.

"What are FIFA doing about it when teams like us are getting hammered and the bigger teams don't?" Kewell told Australian media on Sunday. "We've been told to play the game fair and I think we do.

"Nothing against the bigger teams but they're allowed to do it because of who and what they are."

Australia, who also had Tim Cahill harshly sent off during their opening game with Germany, failed to qualify from Group D despite winning their last game with Serbia 2-1, during which Kewell believes a dive by Milos Krasic was not penalised.

"We were told simulation should be a yellow card - but where was the card?" he said. "I'm not having a go at him (Krasic), he tried to get a penalty for his team, but it went unpunished."
