Following England's defeat to Germany in the Soccer World Cup and the goal that was not to be, Dr Ross Tucker adds his opinion on science versus human error.

The SWC Round of 16 has produced three great matches so far, and one highly controversial moment.  England vs. Germany was a fabulous match, end to end, and far more open than many might have expected, given the history of penalties between the sides. In the end, Germany won handsomely, and for good reason - they were excellent, and deserved the win and the margin of victory.

Sadly, however, the game will be debated for an amazing incident only moments after England had pulled the score back to 2-1.  Virtually straight from the kick-off, a move down the England right resulted in a Frank Lampard shot which struck the bar, bounced down and then back out of the German goal.  The picture below tells you all you need to know about the goal.
