Video: ITV HD cut to advert, miss England goal

ITV has been forced to apologise after a technical balls-up led to viewers of its HD channel misssing Steven Gerrard’s opening goal during last night’s 1-1 draw with USA.

During the build up to England’s first World Cup goal, the channel cut to an advert for Hyundai. Coverage returned to the match just in time to see the celebrations.

If you have got a strange sense of deja vu, that’s because ITV also missed the winning goal in last season’s FA Cup fourth round replay between Everton and Liverpool in Tic-Tacgate.
