“World Cup: Germany bins England"
The International Herald Tribune reports about security measures at Toronto’s economic summits. Nearly $900 million were allocated for security at G8 and G20 events. Canadians are outraged, one MP says it was the most “expensive 72 hours in Canadian history”.
Meanwhile, the British newspaper The Guardian focuses on David Cameron’s performance. It was his first International summit since becoming Prime Minister.
The Germany V England game was on the front page of most British newspapers today, including The Independent, The Daily Telegraph, the Daily Mail, and The Sun.
Most papers cry fowl over Lampard’s disallowed goal, but admit Germany played better than England on the pitch.
The German press however is ecstatic. The Hamburger Morgen Post says it’s a beautiful revenge for their country, referring to their defeat to England 44 years ago.
