England coach Fabio Capello said Sunday that the â€˜Lampard momentâ€™ was the turning point of Germanyâ€™s 4-1 crushing of England.
â€œThe Lampard incident was one of the most important in the match,â€ said Capello, in reference to a goal that would have levelled the match at 2-2 just before half-time, when a Frank Lampard shot bounced off the underside of the bar and landed a yard over the goal-line but was waved away.
â€œThe referee made one of the biggest mistakes, but Germany are a great team, we were caught out on the counter-attack.
â€œThis is football. Little things make all the difference.â€
