But some nations have a little bit more of a tradition built around it than others.

I'd say it's more the case that we've been screwed by dodgy referee calls or outright cheating routinely over the years. Sterling getting a soft pen to replace the clear one which should have been given earlier doesn't seem equivalent to the antics that Mediterranean and South American players have been indulging in for decades to win important trophies.
Bit of a reach to say england have been screwed by refereeing decisions now

Simeone vs. Beckham, Hand of God, Lampard vs. Germany, Rooney vs. Portugal, should I go on?

I think someone else pointed it out the other day, there wasn't a peep of sympathy from rival fans for any one of those incidents, England get one fortuitous decision and suddenly they're the biggest cheats on the planet.

It would be comical if it wasn't so hypocritical.

I guarantee if Denmark's wrongly given free kick they scored from had been the winning goal, none of these people would be saying a word against them.

Definitely lampard and maradona were bad decisions. Letter of the law the other 2 were red cards. Every country has suffered
