Once again, England impressed for only the half the game. But that half was more than good enough to take them through to the World Cup quarter-finals.

A Beckham corner led to the fifth-minute opener – an own goal by Sunderland keeper Thomas Sorensen as he tried to prevent a Rio Ferdinand header reaching the feet of Michael Owen close in.
