Match No. 823 - Wednesday, 17th November 2004, 9:45pm
- "Del Horno puts Spain ahead from ... no surprise here considering it's England's defending ... a corner. The ball was swung into the penalty area from the left and was either deflected or just bounced out to the unmarked Spanish centre-half from the edge of the six-yard box. Quick to react as the England defence stood around looking on in a slack-jawed stupor, he placed a diagonal long-range header into the top corner from about 13 or 14 yards." Asier del Horno, 9'8:49

- Raúl: Missed Penalty25th minute - "Penalty for Spain after Paul Robinson is adjudged to have brought down Raul on the left hand side of the six-yard box [23:56]. The decision was a bit harsh as he appeared to get both hands on the ball. Raul steps up to take it, but Robinson dives low and to his left to bat it clear [24:55]."
- Rooney's Red Mist"12 mins: Wayne Rooney is lucky to escape a caution. He carelessly gives the ball away to Joaquin, then lashes out in frustration with a late, high tackle. 38 mins: For no reason whatsoever, Wayne Rooney shoves Spanish goalkeeper Iker Casillas from behind and sends him flying into a phalanx of photographers and up against the iron railing seperating the fans from pitch.
41 mins: England substitution: Rooney off (before he's sent off), Smith on...Wayne Rooney storms off the pitch to a chorus of jeers, tears off and discards his black armband and storms off down the tunnel in a huff without shaking his substitute's hand."
