Proponents of goal-line technology had another reason to lobby for video replay after what happened in England's 4-1 loss to Germany in the round of 16. England trailed 2-1 in the first half when Frank Lampard's shot hit the crossbar and landed about a yard behind the goal line. But the teams played on as referee Jorge Larrionda didn't rule it a goal. ''The game probably would be different after the goal," England coach Fabio Capello said, but instead Germany scored twice more in the second half and advanced.
