In the Round of 16, the second phase of the 2010 Soccer World Cup in South Africa, England was given a thorough hiding by Germany in Bloemfontein this afternoon. The end score of 4-1 shattered the English dream of taking home the prestigious, leaving thousands of supporters close to tears.

The electrifying match was not free of controversy, as the English were denied one goal by the Uruguayan linesman Mauricio Espinosa, who failed to see who a shot from Frank Lampard had rebounded down from the cross bar and had crossed the line.

In the meantime, Ghanaians are celebrating the victory of their team the Black Stars.  The sole African country that made it passed the world cup’s group phase managed to beat the USA with a smashing 2-1. Ghana will meet Uruguay in the quarter finals of the FIFA tournament next week Friday in Johannesburg’s Soccer City.

Man of the Match Andre Ayew, who scored Ghana’s second goal in extra time, was quoted by the press saying: “We did if for Africa. We knew we had the whole continent behind us and we did not want to disappoint.”
