As you said, two wrongs don't make a right, but if the goal had been given it would have been the English fans complaining that the ref failed to give the offside.

Even if Ukraine had been given the goal we would finished top of the group and Ukraine would still have been eliminated.

But what upsets those for pushing for goal line technology, was UEFA was experimenting the additional referee to spot, first time in major tournament. And still fail to accomplish.

Perhaps its another exhibit to proof that there's a need for such technology to be implemented.

Maybe also future technology embed in cleats to detect off-side? (since Adidas already put computer chips inside cleat boots). Maybe something can be done to the field and detect off-side.
