June 2010: England played four matches of the World Cup 2010 in South Africa.
England started in Group C, along with USA, Algeria and Slovenia.
Due much to a failure of goalkeeper Green in the match against USA, England finished second of the group, and had to face Germany in the next round (had they finished in first, the Englishmen would have faced the more palatable Ghana in the next round).
England lost to Germany by 4 x 1, in a match with the most controversial play of the entire Cup: a goal by Lampard which passed one foot beyong the goal line but was not allowed by the referee (see video below).
»England 1 x 1 USA
»England 0 x 0 Algeria
»Slovenia 0 x 1 England
»Germany 4 x 1 England
