Liverpool icon Craig Johnston says England’s World Cup elimination could be blamed on the Jabulani.
The Aussie legend has slammed the World Cup ball.
“Let me put it this way,” he said. “If they weren’t using the Jabulani, then there would have been no refereeing error over Frank Lampard’s goal [for England against Germany]. Because if it had behaved like a normal ball, that shot would have gone under the cross bar. And by the way, I’ve analysed it and Lampard’s second half shot that hit the crossbar would have gone in too. I’m not saying England were cheated out of it, they may have lost anyway, but they were denied two goals. By that ball.”
