World Cup 2010 England vs Germany: Frank Lampard's 'Goal' Was NOT In

There is no need for FIFA to debate whether they should introduce video technology.

The controversial shot from Frank Lampard against England, obviously did not go in.

As you can see from the referee's eye view picture, the ball clearly didn't go over the line.

I can't see why there is so much talk about this. It sounds like people believe the goal line is straight. Has no one ever looked from a referee's view?

However, whenever England play Germany, there is always a curve in the goal line.

In 1966 the line was going the other way, which is why Geoff Hurst's goal was awarded.

England were knocked out of the World Cup because they played badly against Germany, not because of this decision.
