Sunday 27th June (Andy’s blog)
So much anticipation and so much disappointment, again. No point in dwelling on the atrocious decision by some half arsed Uruguyan ref and linesman. Had that goal been given, things may have been different, we will never know. Being in the ground, you could sense us getting back and importantly the Germans showing signs of weakness. Some good must come from it, both for our national team and every national team robbed of key decisions through lack of technology use. Sepp Blatter, why not become a Catholic Pope mate, there will be a vacancy soon enough.
Anyway loads more on these issues later. Today hats off to Germany who inflicted out worst ever defeat in a World Cup. They outplayed us and finished us in a clinical fashion. By contrast our lot could not trap a ball with a blanket. Everytime Germany took a shot it looked like it was on target and likely to test the keeper.
So, we exit the competition but not South Africa just yet. There is a bit more to see. A nice little game drive and a visit to Rorke’s Drift. At least there we went down fighting!
