  • Assist: Mark Chamberlain. "The goal with which Woodcock brought the scores level in the 38th minute was arguably England's best of the season. Chamberlain just managed to keep the ball in play on the right and his first-time pass sent Woodcock inside Miller...Woodcock's shot catapulted into the top corner of the net to silence a crowd..."
