Ivory Coast manager Sven Goran Eriksson believes Luis Fabiano's dubious goal for Brazil was crucial to the Elephants 3-1 defeat.

Fabiano scored his second to give Brazil a two-goal cushion, but clearly handled the ball twice in the process.

"I heard Brazil complain a lot, but I don't think they should, it is extra difficult when Fabiano is allowed to use his hands. It was not just once, it was twice," Eriksson said.

"It shouldn't have been allowed. They got a goal free. That's a 2-0 goal - that changed everything."

Speaking to Al-Jazeera TV, Eriksson also expressed his dismay with the referee's conversation with Fabiano after the goal.

"I couldn’t believe it when I saw the referee speaking with Fabiano after the goal," said the Swedish.
