There's no point in discussing how he played. Players from both sides, but particularly those from England , spent an undue amount of time trying to ward them off during the match. England almost re-took the lead a minute before the break when Lingard broke through on goal and managed to beat the keeper, but he saw his effort come off the post.

Mexico continued to threaten, Miguel Layun narrowly unable to latch onto a through ball, but their goal arrived 10 minutes before the break as Germany were again sliced apart.

Phil Mickelson knows the rules of golf as well as anyone. What did you think of the move? In my view, as well as others in the know , this was an absurd decision which should have been roundly castigated in the media. They finished three over and then the golf course, according to players and the eye test, crossed the line and became borderline unplayable.
