It's a goal! Eh, no it isn't.

3 Germany v England: The goal that wasn’t
It may be the moment that finally forces FIFA to introduce goal-line technology to soccer. The ball landed a good two feet behind Germany’s goal line after England’s Frank Lampard’s strike hit the crossbar and bounced behind goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. Neither referee Jorge Larrionda nor assistant Mauricio Espinosa saw the ball cross the line, denying England the chance to make it 2-2, and thus change the dynamics of the game (although Capello’s charges still wouldn’t have won). FIFA has since said it is to reconsider the idea of using technology to ensure such controversial incidents are consigned to the garbage bin.
