Cook's late equaliser, a fine curler from 20 yards, secured a 2-2 draw for Russell Slade's men after goals from Paul Hayes and Clayton Donaldson had cancelled out Martin Rowlands' opener.

But with the Bees down to 10 men after Jake Bidwell was sent off and David Mooney having a penalty saved by Simon Moore, Cook knows they missed a chance to grab victory.

"We should have won," he said.

"We were disappointed at half-time, we thought we had outplayed them and out-passed them and they had two corners and scored both.

"The gaffer went mad at half-time, saying we need to defend them better because all our good play was for nothing so it was important we put that right in the second half.

"I know they'd had a man sent off but I think we would have got something out of the game anyway."

eah, that'll do nicely. Guess they're feeling pretty flush after the World Cup and see a few successful years ahead with our new manager. Get Vidal in asap now, and let's get things back on track.

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.
