England 30th June 2010 [Pattaya Daily News] More than 25,000 England supporters at the stadium expressed their outrage at the decision and refusal to allow goal line technology.

The journey had been difficult and expensive for many England supporters who had been expecting England to top their qualifying group, earning the right to play the first knockout game in Rustenburg, but instead, they witnessed an agonizing game which ended with England being denied a goal.

Fans inside the stadium tried rousing the players with patriotic bursts of God Save the Queen and Rule Britannia after a 2-0 score to England, but when a goal was disallowed many sat dumbfounded. One fan said the game was just a farce. He didn’t blame the ref or the lines man, he laid the blame totally with Fifa’s Sepp Blatter for his refusal to use modern technology saying he still thinks Fifa is above all that. It’s pathetic.

Fans emerging from the stadium on the final whistle directed their anger at their own side instead of the referee. However, a few continued their support by singing ‘England Till I Die’ whilst waving their flags urging each other to keep smiling. Two fans from Wigan left before the final whistle stating they had seen enough and did not need any more humiliation. One said even if they had scored, it would have been irrelevant. The time and opportunity was there to come back, but it wasn’t taken. The Germans were just a much better side than us.

Fans sat on the pavement with their head in their hands, mystified at the end result. A young engineer from Cambridge said. “We just can’t play as a team. They may be great players, but they don’t gel. The Germans outran us and made us look like idiots.” He went on to say he had no regrets about making the trip as it is a beautiful country with beautiful people and we’ve had an awesome time.”

It was reported, that on seeing a replay of the moment, the Uruguayan referee said, “Oh my God.” Hundreds of people knew England had scored a legitimate goal within seconds via a replay. Four people, the important ones who should have seen the goal, did not. The Fifa President has apologized to the Football Association over Lampard’s disallowed goal. The defeat brings an end for England who was a favourite to win the World Cup.
