World Cup: Germany humiliate England 4-1

27th June 2010, Comments 0 comments


At the World Cup in South Africa, Germany beat England 4-1 in a match overshadowed by one of the worst refereeing mistakes in  the tournament's history.

Germany's superior movement and ruthless finishing made them worthy winners while England's defending was shockingly sub-standard. Star striker Wayne Rooney once again failed to deliver on the game's biggest stage.

England was denied a goal that would have levelled the match at 2-2 just before half-time, when a Frank Lampard shot bounced off the underside of the bar and landed a yard over the goal-line.

Referee Jorge Larrionda's misjudgement was all the more inexplicable because he was well-placed to see the incident. Yet, after looking across at  his linesman, he waved play on.
