Match No. 819 - Saturday, 4th September 2004, 8:30pm

  • "...Austria suddenly found two goals in three minutes - aided, it must be said, by some grave errors at the back. First Lampard pushed Gernot Sick in dangerous territory and substitute Roland Kollmann whipped a Beckhamesque free-kick past James. Roland Kollmann, 71'
  • "...Ivanschitz ambled forward, the thin white line of defence stood off him, and Austria's young captain had a crack which ricocheted off Terry and slipped under James's ill-timed dive." Andreas Ivanschitz, 73'

  • Assist: David Beckham. "[Austria] were architects of their own downfall in the 23rd minute when a moment of panic from Manninger saw him suddenly plunge down to grasp Martin Stranzl's absurdly casual backpass...Austria clearly expected David Beckham to shoot, but instead he shrewdly angled the ball for the unmarked Frank Lampard to clip in from close range." Frank Lampard6th of 29 goals, 24'
  • Assist: Michael Owen. "With 26 minutes to go England earned themselves a cushion. Smith and Owen combined to tee up Gerrard, whose curling shot from 20 yards was a pearl. Game over? Not on you life." Steven Gerrard5th of 21 goals, 64'
