The good news is we’re not the only country screwed over by bad calls during the 2010 World Cup. The bad news is someone else had to feel the same pain. At first glance of the England/Germany 4-1 score and you might think that England was completely blown out in the game. On second glance, you realize they had a goal missed by the referees that would have tied the score at 2-2 in the 38th minute and dramatically altered the match. There’s no excuse for the refs to have missed this one. Here’s the video of Frank Lampard’s disallowed goal for England:
I don’t understand how they can miss something so crucial in such a big situation. Under no circumstances is this acceptable but it’s even worse when it’s on soccer’s biggest stage. Man, and if you think it’s bad that Koman Coulibably is a hated figure here, I can’t even imagine how much the referee who missed that call will be destroyed in Britain. Yikes!
