England's World Cup: Lost in Translation



From today's Daily Express:

Australian TV official Stuart Dickinson made his fateful call to rule out Mark Cueto’s World Cup final “try” without the freeze frame picture he needed because of difficulties with French broadcasters. While deciding on his verdict, Dickinson could not make the French TV producer responsible for the pictures understand what he wanted and so was forced to make the decision which turned a final on an unsatisfactory moving image.

If true, then it really does seem that England's World Cup was lost in translation.
