(Newser) – Germany reached the World Cup quarterfinals today by beating England 4-1 in a match that will be remembered for the goal not awarded to Frank Lampard. Thomas Mueller finished two quick German counterattacks within four minutes in the second half to sink England's hopes of beating Germany at the World Cup for the first time since the 1966 final.

Miroslav Klose and Lukas Podolski gave Germany a 2-0 lead before Matthew Upson pulled a goal back for England in the 37th minute. Lampard then had a legitimate goal not awarded in the 38th. The England midfielder later hit the crossbar in the 52nd.
