So it's Argentinia again like four years ago. Can someone please call Jens Lehmann and tell him that he should bring a cheat sheet along?    Well, I guess we end the game after 90 minutes with a 3:1 this time.

Didn't FIFA say they would introduce the goal line officials for the 2012 Euros?

For the 2012 qualification matches yes and they'll also introduce this for this years Champions' League, I didn't hear about the goal line officials at EURO 2012 yet, but that may be true.

The level of the linesmen is terrible! England's goal was 3 meters in, and Tevez today was 3 meters offside. I'm not a fan of introducing technology into the game, but something has to be done about the level of the officials

As much as it pains me to say it, England's 'goal' was probably closer to 1m than 3. But clearly over the line.

Maybe we weren't watching the same game. Between England's "first" goal and Germany's third, England were applying some good pressure and weren't exactly "backs to the wall".

Sure, but even then they were mostly just muddling through somehow until the german team regained their composure.

I don't remember any coherent plays during the match which reached a remotely similar level to their opponents.

Quoting David L (Reply 199):
Who's to say it wouldn't have continued if they hadn't been forced by circumstances to press ever harder and start to leave gaps at the back?

I am.

At least as evidenced by this game as it happened, they simply didn't have the means.

Sorry England. I guess everyone here knows how patriotic I am about the german team, but you deserved to equalise. I am sorry for this clearly wrong decision of the referee.

Apart from that, and knowing that a 2:2 might have caused a completely different outcome, I still believe that Germany deserved to win the game.

Anyway, from me, no more complaining about the Wembley Goal. See you in 2 or 4 years.

One of those efforts that hit the bar (the Defore header) was flagged offside,. But as he was level with the last defender, it fits into the pattern that the linesman wasn't doing his job

Agreed. Its nice to hear a German saying that. Thats the point I and a few others have been trying to make. Just because England were playing badly doe's not mean we might not have gone on to win it. Everyone quite rightly states that England were playing poorly, but despite this they still managed to score two goals against Germany so nobody knows what would have happened if the goal would have been allowed and it would have been 2:2.

Yes I agree with you. Congratulations on your win.

Quoting Klaus (Reply 208):

True....we were simply not good enough and Germany were the better team. However its worth noting German fans that a very poor England team scored twice against you and also hit the bar twice. Something to think about perhaps when your side face the likes of Messi,Tevez and Higuain next Saturday.....   

But seriously well done Germany.You deserved your win today.

The fact that Germany went on and smashed us 4-1 makes Lampard's blatant goal irrelevant, yeah it was a shocking piece of refereeing but England were well and truly outplayed. It really was embarassing at times, the defending and organisation was amateurish. The Germans probably could not believe how bad England were, it was that easy at times. Fabio Capello will get hammered in the media but then again every England manager does, Capello is only partly to blame. The technical ability and mental attitude of English players is just not right. We just can't get to grips with the basics of the game, like passing it around and keeping possesion, positioning, creating space etc. If one of the greatest managers in football can't get England playing, then who can? The brutal reality is that England are light years from even coming close of winning a World Cup.

Who are the jokers that made England third favourites to win the World Cup? LMAO

A goal line camera is clearly a low hanging fruit.

Offsides can take a while to calculate even with replays.

That's why Adidas has been rumored to be studying the idea of putting RFID tags on individual player's shoes--it will allow very precise geolocation of the player on the field, which means it's now possible to electronically watch for offside calls.

While I don't think it made a difference in either game, the officiating in this WC has been awful. Two disallowed goals for the USA, and now these two disasters. And neither were particularly close calls.

I don't think there's a game in which one goal means more than soccer, and FIFA needs to wake up and realize that the technology to get these calls right exists, and has existed for a long time now - have someone take a look at the replay, signal the ref on the field, and tell him that it was a goal. 2-2 is a very different game than 2-1, and while Germany was playing better, we have no idea what would have happened had the goal been counted properly. If the NHL can get this right, FIFA can as well. Hell, the refs are already wearing headsets, so it would be even easier to communicate with an extra official who is watching the TV replays.

Congratulations to Germany and Argentina, and it's going to be a fun matchup next weekend, but when you have to wonder what could have been, it's not good for the game.

I would agree only to a case like this one to use technology, because if the ball is in, it's a goal, end of story. However I would not like to see the same thing applied to offside calls or any other part of the game ....

Very true. I just hope they stay on earth, because Messi will not be as forgiving. I think Argentina vs Germany will be a great, legendary match.

I am already looking forward to the next duel with England. The game yesterday certainly was another legendary game. My respect especially goes to the English supporters, I really wish them a succesful tournament soon (as long as you don't play against us   ).

Go Holland! I hope finally the Dutch team is gonna show their true capabilities with attractive football, but of course the result is what counts. Van der Vaart seems to be too injured to play, so perhaps there will be Robben in the start-11, however more likely would be Elia or Afellay on the left-wing.

The evening match promises also to be interesting!

Indeed I couldn't believe my eyes just how amateurish that "captain of the hearts" Terry was outmanouevered in minute 20...and Upson should be thankful that Klose chose to try it and NOT to dive...given the Ref's performance it would have been penalty and possibly red for Upson (he did have his arm in the right place  )...and from then on, he got worse and worse.... see minutes 67 and 70, that looked just so easy...and you could see it in Gerrards face that he gave up about 15 minutes before the end.

I said it in another thread but England seems to be now in the very place German football was in 2004: Football of the 80ies, played by "stars" who felt as if they had been around in the 80ies...not wanting to acknowledge that the game has moved in the meantime. You can see that in PL, you could see it in Bundesliga, but on the national level nobody seems to care, even though hiring Capello seemed a perfect move (and I still believe that given some of England's performances during qualification).

In Germany there was some kind of turnaround, now get your act together and do the same...or not. We'll be more than happy to send you home early from WCs/ECs the next 44 years.

Yes, Germany could have won it anyway, because they did seem like a better team, but had that goal gone in, I would have expected a mre confident English team.

I predict a clear victory for our team on Saturday, they'll play Messi & Co. dizzy! Maradona will cry like in the summer night in Rome 20 years ago.

Lets hope this prediction is better than the previous one

Nice game. Finally we get some decent football at this world cup in the recent games.

I'm amazed at how disciplined and patient Brazilian team has played at this World Cup.

Wimps, both of you!

Now now! My hangover was twice as bad because my team didn't make it past the group stages. Let alone the amount of beer it took to make Switzerland's performance watchable on Friday.

Sorry, I forgot that! When England had kicked Germany out yesterday, I would probably also still hangover.

PS: Another great goal by BRA!

Seems that I was a bit too exhausted from work and the heat two hours ago.

No worries, I’ve had my fair share of exhaustion too. And sadness hearing that the amazing Brazilians are really that amazing. I’d have wanted Chile to win, so that Brazil would for a change fall out of the game during the 16-finals.

I guess no team in the world (except maybe Spain, Argentina, Germany and the Netherlands on a brilliant day) would have beaten Brazil today. It was not always nice, but really well played and defended.

They'll drop out at the quarter final on Friday by the mighty Oranje squad.

Revenge, revenge is what we want in Holland for the 1994 World cup Quarter-final & 1998 Semi-final. Especially that last one was a thriller with the penalty-kicks.
