… the linesman and referee to be able to bloody see!
England have gone back to the dressing rooms for half time 2-1 to Germany when the actual score is 2-2.
The linesman was a few yards from the corner, he should have been able to see the goal. The referee was in the right position to see the goal, why didn’t he? Capello, Beckham and Pearce could see it from the halfway line. The fans could see it from the stands and were unimpressed judging by the chants of “the referee is a wanker”.
FIFA recently refused to have any kind of technology to adjudicate on goals – that position is surely untenable after the ridiculous decision to disallow England’s second goal. Tennis has hawk eye which can see if a 2.7″ wide tennis ball travelling at 130mph is over the line, it would have no problems with a 28″ football at 30mph. Rugby has a video judge and the game stops when there is a dispute so why not in the world cup?
I always knew Sepp Blatter was an arsehole, now he has the opportunity to show that he has some integrity.
