6. Lukas Podolski, Germany vs England
If there was one moment in the Three Lions’ Bloemfontein nightmare that illustrated how comprehensively they were being outclassed by Germany, it was this. A supremely confident and technically excellent passage of football, it begins with a cool dink from the outside of Miroslav Klose’s boot, scuttled onto by Thomas Muller, who squares neatly to the advancing Podolski. The Bayern Munich man fires through David James’ legs to double Germany’s lead. Shambolic defending can only be partly blamed.
