Match No. 801 - Wednesday, 2nd April 2003, 8:00pm

  • "Darius Vassell, looking lively since coming on, does brilliantly, coming in off the left channel and forcing Rustu to save down to his left. From the corner, Turkey part clear it, but the return ball from Bridge is met well by Rio Ferdinand on the half volley. Rustu saves excellently again, but Vassell steers it under the keeper as he attempts to parry the rebound." Darius Vassell4th of 6 goals. , 75'
  • "Straight away, [after coming on, Kieron Dyer], down the right, tries his best not to fall over, but can't help but win a penalty...which is despatched by David Beckham. The Turks were less than happy about the penalty decision (Dyer was stumbling), and a couple of bookings were handed out by the Swiss ref either side of Beckham's perfect spotkick." David Beckham11th of 17 goals. , 90' +1 (pen)
