"I think it [the disallowed goal] had an effect but we cannot use that as an excuse with being beaten 4-1. That would have been a big goal for us. It's all ifs and buts. Germany are a fantastic
team and they deserved their win."
-- England captain Steven Gerrard, refusing to blame his team's 4-1 loss to Germany on Frank Lampard's apparent goal that crossed the line but wasn't awarded. The goal would have tied the score at 2-2.
