Illegal 1966 World Cup Extra Time Goal Reviewed

Will Germany ever be able to forgive England over the 1966 World Cup Finals extra time goal that should not have been allowed?

In 1995 after reviewing the video footage Oxford University concluded that the goal should not have counted. Since the 1966 World Cup Final, a controversial goal resulting from a shot bouncing off the crossbar is called a Wembley-Tor (Wembley goal) in Germany.

Some feel there is a good chance of England and Germany meeting in this years World Cup and the fact that someone such as Michael Ballack comes out and states that it would be good if Germany and England met in the World Cup seems to allude to this soccer history.

Germany has won 3 World Cup titles, England 1, Brazil 6. Perhaps this should be 4 0 6?
