ITV shows English fans an ad instead of Gerrard goal

England supporters had been waiting four long years to get back to the World Cup stage to finally see what their proud Three Lions had in them against the world's best. So they were undoubtedly very excited to see Steven Gerrard slot home the first goal of their World Cup campaign against the U.S. Except many of them didn't see it.

Viewers of ITV HD weren't presented with those triumphant images, as the network completely, 100 percent, absolutely, unquestionably, blew it. Instead of the goal, ITV showed viewers an inexplicably placed advertisement, the ITV HD logo, then nothing at all, until right after Gerrard scored the match's fast first goal.

Of course, this isn't the first time ITV has done this. Two seasons ago, it cut to an ad just as Everton scored a winner against Liverpool and promised harsh action to address the problem. Guess not.

Sadly, they didn't have an in-game advertisement to cover up Robert Green's amazing choke show later in the match. That would've been welcomed.

Dem should be responsible for showing Play Whe.
The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today are Christians who acknowledge Jesus ;with their lips and walk out the door and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.
