The above shot says it all.
In between the morning working sessions of Sunday's G20 summit, British Prime Minister David Cameron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel found some time to watch the England-Germany World Cup soccer match.
Cameron, no doubt, wishes they hadn't. England were trounced 4-1 by a vastly superior German side that shredded the Three Lions' back four and crushed a nation's hopes and dreams -- again.
The match also featured potentially one of the worst calls in the tournament's history after the Uruguayan officiating team incorrectly ruled a clear goal by Frank Lampard did not cross the line.
But that's now history, as is England's World Cup experience.
