  • Assist: Nicky Barmby. "Beckham's free-kick from near the left corner flag appeared to have been overhit, but Gerrard diligently chased it down to allow Gary Neville to send it back into the goalmouth form the opposite direction. Nick Barmby gained the priceless flick to wrongfoot the German defence and, though the ball came to Owen at an awkward height, he hooked a shot past Kahn for his eighth goal of a seaon less than a month old." Michael Owen11th of 40 goals. Right-footed from 8 yards., 12' 11:58

  • Assist: Emile Heskey. "Again Beckham was the provider, hooking the ball across from the right for Heskey to nod into Owen's path. Kahn got his hand to Owen's shot, but could not keep it out. Michael Owen12th of 40 goals. Right-footed from 10 yards., 48' 47:39
