    Friggin shite, how did they get Devic’s disallowed goal wrong?

    Ukraine outplayed England and still go out with nothing

  2. Rich June 20, 2012 12:05 am

    Stevie G is the man- assists galore!

  3. Ole June 20, 2012 12:21 am

    Amen to that Rich

    Gerrard should probably be given more greater attacking freedom against Spain which is a game I believ we can genuinely win

  4. Abdul aziz June 20, 2012 12:38 am

    ronney is good.

  5. Grayson June 20, 2012 1:21 am

    Ukraine didn’t out play shite. They lost cos they suck!

  7. mt_hart June 20, 2012 2:33 am

    England bad defence

  8. Daniel Elmes June 20, 2012 3:35 am

    We won’t be playing Spain….. the next game is against Italy……

  9. kuttu June 20, 2012 4:35 am

    i thought it would be Welbeck in reserve bench

  10. Tezz June 20, 2012 4:36 am

    @ Grayson, you’re see you saw the same match? Ukraine bossed possession, had more attempts ( albeit wayward ones) and corners.

    A more resourceful team would’ve put England to the cleaners.

  11. Lee June 20, 2012 4:45 am

    They bossed and lost, clean that!

  12. Frosty June 20, 2012 5:11 am

    The goal that never was was offside, it should never have got that far! Jeez, I can’t believe that people are bleating that the goal wasn’t given when a massive offside was missed just a few seconds earlier!

  13. Mark hardinga June 20, 2012 5:40 am

    I love Rooney with a passion.

  14. Andrew June 20, 2012 6:02 am

    Offsides are always sometimes called, sometimes not. It’s just Part of the game. But the goal still should have counted. People still score from being offsides. It happens. But the extra official standing on the line is there for one reason, to say whether the ball went in or not, and it clearly went in.

  15. Chico June 20, 2012 7:08 am

    Yes but just like the goal that went in, the offside was a missed call and if you are going to count one thing then you must count the other as it applies to the same circumstances. Devic was offside so before you say that the goal ‘should have’ counted it really shouldn’t have.

  16. Jomby June 20, 2012 7:38 am

    Regardless of goals being aloud Ukraine are out so there’s no use crying over spilt milk! We English will take Italy over Spain any day!

  17. chris james June 20, 2012 7:40 am

    Fair does the Ukraine goal did go in but watch the footage properly I do believe you call it OFFSIDE therefore ENGLAND won fair and square. so don’t try leaving any shite that England shouldn’t have won

  18. Sharon June 20, 2012 8:06 am

    I thought Konoplienka and Devic played quite well for Ukraine yesterday- talented chaps

  19. Bryan June 20, 2012 8:35 am

    I think the commentator on the Daily Motion video was a bit unfair to the Ukrainian goalie when Rooney scored. The goalie missed the ball because it took a slight deflection off a defender just before it got to him.

    And then of course there was the disallowed goal. Still, I’m really chuffed that England is in the quarter-finals.

  20. Miroslava June 20, 2012 8:53 am

    Sorry guys. You agree or disagree but peole all over rhe world saw a GOAL into English gates but the STUPID JUDGE didn’t!!!!!!!! What are the rules of soccer then????

  21. Olly June 20, 2012 8:59 am

    I can’t believe that people are still discussing the disallowed goal, if you were watching the whole game and also understand the rules then you would see that the Ukrainian player was offside to start with so justice was done in the end. Two wrongs did make a right in this instance.

  22. Andres June 20, 2012 9:06 am

    Can`t see any offside there. When is it? WTF? Ukraine`s goal is totally legal.

  23. mahmoud June 20, 2012 9:27 am

    you are very stupid miroslava .how come u didnt see the offside before the goal .very silly

  24. Miroslava June 20, 2012 9:37 am

    I was watching he whole game, and as far as I know as soon as the judge sees the offside he should whistle, shouldn’t he??? Legal UKRAINIAN goal and illegal victory of the English team. Ukrainians support their team anyway. Especcially when they show their character (as they did during the last match) ????? ???????!

  25. Miroslava June 20, 2012 9:39 am

    I don’t think intelligent people would call people they’ve never seen “stupid”… Let’s be fair: who was better in this match???

  26. Olly June 20, 2012 9:41 am

    The offside is about 10 yards inside England’s half and was quite an easy one for the linesman to give.

  27. Moore June 20, 2012 9:57 am

    Grayson June 20, 2012 1:21 am, the only person who sucks is you. go home.

  28. David Wilson June 20, 2012 10:20 am

    No goal.

  29. Olly June 20, 2012 10:21 am

    How can you say it was a legal Ukrainian goal when your guy was, I MEAN REALLY WAS (FACT!!) about a yard offside when the ball was played to him, it is there for everyone to see, it actually happened, I’m not lying I’ve watched 10 replays so far and he is offside in every single one of them. Just because the linesman didn’t put his flag up doesn’t mean he got the decision correct, if he had done then we wouldn’t be having this debate. Oh and by the way, the referee also missed a stone wall penalty which should have been given to England when Andy Carroll was shoved in the back inside the penalty area.

  30. Krv June 20, 2012 11:33 am

    Well we all know that dis english side s bullsh**
    Refree shud have given that goal….nd for those people who think their english side is capable of winning this tournament…..bitch please…this ain’t gonna happen….italy is one of the strongest contenders this yr…..nd ur team….as told u earlier…is BULLSH**….!!

  31. Alex June 20, 2012 11:34 am

    ENG- 3 Good Attempts on targets – 1 SCORED. UKR – 2 attempts on target,none scored. WHO DOMINATED? – ALL SCOTTISH and IRISH commenting here NEED TO GET (SKILLS) AND A LIFE!

  32. peter June 20, 2012 12:25 pm

    England are class end of!
    The pride of great britain!

  33. mark June 20, 2012 12:45 pm

    he was in passive offside and goal is legal,referee was blind,but now it doesn’t matter Ukraine played better game than England.And just luck helped Roonie to score…

  34. Miroslava June 20, 2012 12:56 pm

    You’re trying to persuade (cheat) not only me, but all world! Only the ones who didn’t want to see this goak really didn’t see it. Good luck, England. But our guys deserve this victory.

  35. Olly June 20, 2012 12:59 pm

    KRV get over yourself please. I’m pretty sure that England scored one goal fair and square also had a definite penalty not given. All Ukraine did is have a goal disallowed which should have been given offside way before they got anywhere the goal, and before any Ukrainians start again yes it was OFFSIDE, I have seen it again and he still in an offside position when the ball was played.

  36. Olly June 20, 2012 1:28 pm

    MARK, could you please explain what you mean by passive offside. I’m pretty sure the guy who initially took the ball (not the goalscorer) when it was played forward was offside so that is offside to me.

  37. Denys June 20, 2012 1:41 pm

    Sometimes try to read and not just write. See what Mark wrote:
    “mark June 20, 2012 12:45 pm
    he was in passive offside”

  38. Viktor June 20, 2012 2:01 pm

    Shameful victory for England. Ukraine was clearly stronger. I hope England will take off quickly from the euro

  39. Oil From Thailand June 20, 2012 2:22 pm

    England bought the 5th referee…… IMO,,,,, They will never ever be a champion…. IMO….

  40. Karem June 20, 2012 2:36 pm

    Cheers for our english team’s luck but I wasn’t impressed of the way they played, plus Rooney missed out lots of attempts with simple heads and the line referee should be fired from UEFA, how blind could he be for not counting the offside neither the Ukrainian legal goal! But to be honest if Shevshenko wasn’t knee injured and played since the beginning of the game and they had a fair judges Ukraine would’ve won the game Ukr 2-1 Eng. I’m happy for us being in the quarter-finals but our boys disappointed me, I never wanted them to win this way! Ukraine played fair and way much better than our team. But as they always say tuff luck

  41. Olly June 20, 2012 3:11 pm

    I do read everyone’s comments before making my own but I don’t understand where he gets this passive offside idea from. Let me explain why:

    1. Passive offside is where a player can be in an offside position when the initial ball is played forward but is not initially involved in the play. They can then later become involved as long as the offside rule isn’t broken at that point.

    2. The player who scored the goal was actually onside when the ball was played forward so the passive offside rule doesn’t apply.

    3. The player who the ball was passed to initially before he passed to the goalscorer was in an offside position. There was no other defender between him and the goalkeeper so therefore he is quite simply offside.

    4. Here is the video of what happened – youtube(dot)com/watch?v=XJnLSVYY8XI
    If you don’t believe me then put that address into your browser and watch it, around 6-7 seconds in is where the offside is obvious.

  42. Mezem June 20, 2012 3:48 pm

    Sepp’s at it again!

  43. craig June 20, 2012 5:23 pm

    May I intervene?… As a proud Scot… But a neutral! There is nothing more I would like to see then England get knocked out! But I think my opinion should be more relevant than anybody’s for those reasons… And the fact is… It should never have even got that far as it was clearly offiside!… The player who collected the ball was in an offside position when the pass was made!… Fact! Yes, the goal line assistant is there to tell if the ball has crossed the line or not… The same as the linesman who is there to tell if the player was onside or off!but either way it wouldn’t have made a difference… Ukraine would have still been knocked out and England would have still won the group!… It is just a case of sour grapes… Looking for an excuse for Ukraine not being a very good side I’m afraid… If they was as good as you say… Then they would have won. Oh and miroslava… As for cheating the world?.. bit excessive I think!… Because the whole world could clearly see the offside in the first place… Let it go my friend…regardless of possession You lost fair and square!

  44. rick June 20, 2012 5:42 pm

    Its an offside and the goal should never have happened! Fact.
    Maybe the goal judge saw it like millions of other people and decided to make up for it.

    I don’t understand what everyone is talking about ???England playing bad??? Did you watch the other 2 games? The 8 man back is a strategy that has this so – so English team winning games. 2 lines of 4. They used this during the other two games as well.

    Lower premier league teams employ the tactic all the time and TIE and WIN games against bigger clubs. If you can’t see the goal, you can’t score!!

    If you people don’t see it, I sure hope Italy thinks England stink too. They are in for a surprise if they do…

  45. rick June 20, 2012 5:50 pm

    And as a side note.. the tactic wears down the other side mentally and physically while conserving energy for the team using it. The Ukraine players were frustrated and yelling at each other.

    Sure Ukraine looked great running around passing the ball in the middle of the field and down the sides but they had no chance against the WALL!!!!

    Shevshenko wasnt fit but neither are a slew of British players that didn’t make it there.

    Sorry Ukraine supportes but you are offside on this one!

  46. keef June 20, 2012 6:14 pm

    I thought Rooney was very poor. Carroll would have scored a lot earlier and his work rate is far higher. drop Rooney for Italy game. Gerard was brilliant and a class above all other players.

    even if the Ukraine goal had been allowed we still finished top which is amazing

  47. David June 20, 2012 6:18 pm

    But when Spain does it its counted 😉 … these referees are biased, luckily they’ve been banned

  48. S*ckitUkraine June 20, 2012 6:44 pm

    You lost, stop crying and accept it. The ball DID cross the line, but you WERE offside, none of this ambiguous passive offside bullsh*t. You played bad because you were bad, deal with it and come back stronger.

  49. Derek June 20, 2012 7:03 pm

    In my opinion , Ukraine played better and Rooney had luck …but Good Job Ukraine and England

  50. jave June 20, 2012 7:08 pm

    To be honest I am a fan of the English but the match they played against Ukraine was not impressive and yes Ukraine did score a legal goal but Ukraine lacked the quality to finish off the game.

  51. Miroslava June 21, 2012 9:54 am

    I know that Germany will win! We support fair play. So justice will be and hope England won’t go furtther)))

  52. Edmund June 21, 2012 2:47 pm

    England fans shouldn’t get too carried away by this victory, and qualification for the quarter-finals. A more technically-gifted team such as Italy will put the English to the sword. Ukraine are a second-rate team who couldn’t even avoid losing to a poor England side, when they had home advantage. Don’t forget that the Ukrainians only qualified by the backdoor because they are joint hosts.

  53. Doesitmatter June 21, 2012 3:08 pm

    Miroslava: Fairplay = counting a goal that is offside?

  54. Ronny June 21, 2012 4:17 pm

    As this article reviewmaze(dot)com/2012/06/is-there-any-sport-involving-more(dot)html suggests even if there has been an offside this just make the number of mistakes bigger. It’s really a stupid situation – so popular game with immensely stupid jusging system.

  55. Miroslava June 21, 2012 9:48 pm

    “The ball crossed the line,” the Italian said. “This was the third situation of this kind in the tournament. Unfortunately, this one was wrong.” Collina’s words. Uefa chief refereeing officer Pierluigi Collina has admitted that Ukraine were wrongly denied a goal in their 1-0 defeat against England.
    What’s the f**king off-side are you talking about?????????????????

  56. James June 21, 2012 10:35 pm

    It was offside when the Ukrainian left-back passes a long ball to the Ukrainian striker, at the time the ball was played he is in an offside position, by fifa-rules. Then this striker passes the ball to the goalscorer who plays the ball into the goal.

    So yes it was offside, but alas the linesman didn’t see it, then the goal crossed the line, but once again the officials didn’t see it. Besides, England would have gonenthrough with a draw, even with a 2 – 1 loss.

    Also schevchenko should’ve been sent off, so i can’t see how Karzai would have been paid :P.

  57. Sepsy June 22, 2012 12:26 am

    Meeh, England squad sucks anyway

  58. Doesitmatter June 22, 2012 1:29 pm

    James: thank you for expelling for me.
    Miroslava: if you watch the replays you can clearly see he is offside when the ball was played to him

  59. Terence June 22, 2012 1:45 pm

    The ball crossed the line, period. There’s no way in hell that Eng-what is going to beat Italy. Yes, in their dreams!!!! After the quarter final, England is going straight to the airport en-route to London!

    Germany to lift the trophy!

  60. Doesitmatter June 22, 2012 4:26 pm

    The play was offside period.

  61. ayo June 22, 2012 4:35 pm

    england’ll surprise all by beating italy den challenge germany

  63. Antides Santo June 23, 2012 10:41 am

    I had in the past many friends from England and Scotland. If any of them reads this, i wish them the best. In my country we also had, and still have, many ukrainians. This is to say that i’m neutral. I’ve seen the match England vs Ukraine on 2DF (Germany) and the images left little doubt that the ball was fully after the line. The referees can misjudge. What i regret is, as this problem comes from so long ago, UEFA has not yet changed its position concerning technical aids.
    One day, in a final of the “Taça de Portugal”, the same doubt was in our minds; this was long ago. Mr. Michel Platini, why not a step forward?

    Dear Ray,

    For the Ukrainians it would make a difference. Striving for justice in our own country and fighting against corruption in it, we look up high onto the European Union’s values. And we assume that Euro-2012 was bringing high standards into Ukraine as well – at least, in the area of sports. Sports should bring people joy, peace and justice as the sports events are in front of thousands and even millions fans’ eyes. And only the blind could not see the goal. It is not the issue of victory for Ukraine, but the issue of justice in football.

    Alas! The misallowed goal from Ukraine showed me that there is injustice in the European soccer and there are also non-professionals who are ALLOWED to judge on the EU soccer pitch. When the evident goal was not counted, is there a reason to trust the stronger countries who always try to take an advantage of a weaker country?

    The misallowed goal means humiliation for Ukrainians.
    The misallowed goal means the European soccer values stink.
    The misallowed goal means that the UEFA bosses simply do not want to interfere into an injust game. In the IT era, it is really rediculous that the UEFA does not rely on the IT to double-check whether the goal has happened or not.

    Shame on low standards of the European soccer!

    I love, adore and take my hat off before Ukraine – my dearest team of champions! Blokhin and Shevchenko are our football stars and legends!

    And respect to you all in this forum, guys. I would all-heartedly seek to see a fair soccer, not unfair like in the game Ukraine-England.

  65. simbarashe June 23, 2012 2:12 pm

    GET!! IN ENGLAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    THE BEST PLAYER IS WENYE ROONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOW

  66. Antides Santo June 23, 2012 4:59 pm

    Dear Ukranian friend, i fully understand your sorrow. You have done your best to have beautiful stadiums, to honour the countries of this our Europe. And an unhappy decision of a referee SEEMS to disregard all that.
    But remember: more than the result of a game, it is your image of a great and respectful country that counts for the future. We in Portugal also did our best in 2004 and did not win.

  67. Baloch June 24, 2012 5:18 am

    Well done Ukraine ..they cant even stand against Ukraine how would they face Germany i do agree Daniel they won’t be playing Germany….. the next game is against Italy… hopefully take off time ,British Prido Squad

  68. Beryl Awuor June 24, 2012 5:38 pm

    Rooney ur da best in england

  69. Antides Santo June 30, 2012 5:29 pm

    Now that the dust has settled and we have no more tears, with 2 survivors left for the great final match, who will win is a mystery; the ancient Greeks would say that we are all winners, es partners in the event.

  70. Inna July 3, 2012 6:58 pm

    Anides Santo: “…we are all winners, es partners in the event”.

    Dear Anides,

    Thanks. And I agree w/ you. We are all part of this world and are all winners as far as we can live in peace and live peace.

    The Ukrainians were honoured indeed to host Euro-2012. And the fans from Europe have brought part of good Europe with them into Ukraine. Different nations could exchange their positive emotions and support their national teams.

    Ronaldo is popular in Ukraine too )
