- "Germany keeper Neuer's long clearance was routine, but both Upson and Terry were caught out of position, with the West Ham defender compounding his misjudgement by being brushed aside for Klose to stab home." Miroslav Klose, 20'19:41
- "Germany extended their lead 12 minutes later. Again England were all at sea defensively, with Podolski left with time and space to score from an angle after Klose and Mueller carved them wide open." Lukas Podolski, 32'31:51
- "The danger was always that Germany would strike on the counter attack, and they did to deadly effect as Mueller reopened their two-goal advantage after 67 minutes. From and England free-kick Gareth Barry lost possession on the edge of Germany's area, allowing them to sweep to the other end for Mueller to fire past James from Bastian Schweinsteiger's pass." Thomas Müller, 67'66:17
- "And it was all over three minutes later, with Barry at fault again. He failed to deal with a clearance near the touchline, letting in Ozil to provide Mueller with a simple finish." Thomas Müller, 70'69:32

- England are knocked out of World Cup 2010.Germany progress to the quarter finals.
- England: New RecordWorst defeat for 5 years, worst competitive defeat since 1980 and worst ever at the World Cup Finals.
- Lampard: Goal Not Given[37:43] "But moments after Upson's header, in a grim echo of Geoff Hurst's goal that helped England to victory over West Germany in the 1966 World Cup final, Frank Lampard's superb lofted finish landed feet over the line behind German keeper Manuel Neuer, an incident obvious to almost everyone inside the Free State Stadium. Capello was leading the England celebrations in his technical area, only to be stunned as Uruguayan referee Jorge Larrionda and his officials waved play on."
As a direct result of this non-goal Sepp Blatter, FIFA President, announced that Goal Line Technology dicussions would re-open. In July 2012 IFAB voted to allow goal line technology and was first used in the FIFA World Club Cup in Japan in December 2012.
