    No the team did not cheat because the linesman and referee awarded England a dodgy goal. England then went on to score again.

    No the host nation always gets big refereeing decisions - just like Germany did as hosts in the 1974 World Cup final.

    No.England's third goal was shall we say "contentious" and there have been many conspricy theories, the most plausble being the Russian linesman's hatred of the Germans (this was only 20 years after WW2 remember).

    But they scored another, so it was irrelevant.

    It was the referee's decision

    Same as Maradona's hand in 1986

    It doesn’t matter but home teams have an advantage.

    No, in those days the referee and linesmen's verdicts were accepted as final.

    No idea. I'm not keen on football. That was a long time ago anyway. I wasn't even born then. I like 1960s music though. Was a great decade for music. The swinging 60s.
