Poor England crushed 4-1 by Germany

England's World Cup dream is over after Fabio Capello's men were thumped 4-1 by Germany in Bloemfontein.

A poor start to the match saw England go 2-0 down ealry in the second half thanks to goals from Miroslav Klose and Lukas Podolski.

England did hit back through a Matthew Upson goal to give them some hope. And then Frank Lampard fired in a strike that came down off the crossbar and bounced down over the line, but was not given by the officials.

However, even though England improved after the break, they were undone by two counter-attacking goals from Thomas Muller.

After that, England never looked like getting back into the game and ended up suffering their biggest ever World Cup finals defeat.
