England Cheated Of Blatant Goal Against Germany: Video

England was cheated of a blatant Frank Lampard goal Sunday against Germany when the Chelsea midfielder’s shot hit the crossbar, bounced 2-3 feet inside the goal and back out of the goal. But incredibly, the referee decided that it wasn’t a goal which allowed Germany to go into half-time 2-1 ahead.

This is a blatant example of how FIFA needs to add video technology to aid referees and assistant referees.

For England to be cheated in this manner is an outrage and absolutely horrible. In 2010, FIFA should be using the latest in technology to ensure that decisions are handled correctly. The travesty of all of this is that the referee can only call when he and his assistant referees can see. We, at home, with the aid of TV replays can see much more which puts us an unfair advantage over the referees who are not able to see the replays.

I don’t blame the officials. I blame FIFA for putting referees into a very difficult position. It’s almost impossible for the referees to “win.” The referees will almost always lose, as do we the soccer fans.

At the end of the day, soccer should be fair. Fair decisions rather than teams being penalized by poor decisions by referees who are handicapped by not having access to video technology.
