Germany get their revenge after 44 years
44 years ago, in 1966, England played Germany and became World Champion after Geoff Hurst scored a controversial goal. Did his ball cross the line?
And today, during exactly the same game, we had a similar situation when Lampard's goal was not credited by the referee. Amazing that such a controversial situation happens twice in the same game.
Would Lampard's game have changed something? Probably. Would it have meant England would have won? Probably not. If the game had ended on a draw, Germany would have won. Because there are some certainties in football : England never win a game against Germany when there are penalty shootouts :)
