I have already mentioned the mistakes made by the refereeing teams on Sunday in the matches between Germany and England and Mexico and Argentina.

These were major decisions which possibly had a big influence on the results.

But mistakes are part of football.

What about the mistake of Mexican number 5 Ricardo Osorios which gifted Argentina its second goal?

Or what about the mistake of the English central defence for the first two German goals?

Gareth Barry of England will not want to look at replays of the last two German goals.

We must keep things in perspective.

Football is a game of opinions, passion, great skill and major mistakes.

Long may the beautiful game continue to be so!
