That was a goal!

Great game between England and Germany, well-worth the overwrought build-up. Germany is slashing through the English defense, but England was brutally robbed of a very clear goal by Lampard that was remniscent of the 1966 game-winner. I didn’t expect England to give Germany this much of a game, but it’s a really good one although without a solid performance by David James Germany would be leading 4-2… assuming that FIFA would stop disallowing goals scored.

More about the first round games later. The US loss was disappointing, but they played okay and Ghana well-merited the win.
