England beat Ukraine in photos: the ball crossed the line but justice was served

by | 19th, June 2012

ENGLAND beat Ukraine 10 at Euro 2012, and march on to a quarter-final with a prosaic Italy. Ukraine were robbed. The hosts scored a good goal that the referee missed. But it was ok. Really it was. The ITV commentator told us that there might have been an offside in the build up and “justice had been done”. Because that’s just what you think when a team has a perfectly good goal disallowed: jutice has been served. Still, England march on, bombers and all.

Elsewhere hats off to other members of the ITV pundit panel:

Andy Townsend: “We’ll credit the goalkeeper, but what a miss that was.”
Patrick Vieira: “Technically the Italians  are less better than the Spaniards.”
Roberto Martinez: “Football is a game of errors but you don’t expect mistakes.”
