Wolrd Cup history repeats itself

A potentially equalising goal is disallowed due to the lack of goal-line technology and then Germany go on to beat England by a convincing margin. The first time as tragedy the second time as farce.

Let us remind ourselves of what the Sun was saying before the games began.

It's about up to the standard of that august publication then. Perhaps a member of the German team could be enlisted to explain the term schadenfreude.

So the British public have been let out early from their prison of national soul searching and the Germans, who suffer no such angst, are free to romp forwards to a defeat at the hands of the Argentinians.

Meanwhile there are others in a more celebratory mood.
