Match No. 829 - Wednesday, 17th August 2005, 8:00pm

  • "A Beckham free-kick is claimed by Sorensen, who immediately throws the ball to Rommedahl to initiate a counter-attack. The winger sends the ball over the top for Tomasson to run onto, but he is beaten to the ball by the on-rushing James. Sadly James lives up to his nickname "Calamity", sliding past the ball, and though Ashley Cole recovered well to challenge Tomasson, the forward is able to pick out Rommedahl for a tap-in. A disastrous goal for James." Dennis Rommedahl, 60'59:31
  • "Jensen, as he has done already a couple of times this half, skips past Johnson, then slides the ball across for the waiting Tomasson. Cole again intercepts, but his clearance rebounds comically (it would be tragic if it wasn't a friendly) to provide Tomasson with a one-yard tap-in." Jon Dahl Tomasson, 63'62:43
  • "Sloppy miscontrol from Beckham gives Denmark a corner, to which Gravgaard beats Carragher. The ball cannons off Gerrard and bounces over Joe Cole on the near post. This is getting embarrassing." Michael Gravgaard, 67'66:08
  • "And then there is the fourth. Larsen beats Ferdinand to a throughball and flicks it on the slide past James, who for some reason had already gone to ground. Another odd piece of goalkeeping. The humiliation is complete." Søren Larsen, 90'91:23 +2

  • Assist: David Beckham. "Rooney gets the goal his performance has fully deserved. In truth, he has been the only England player who has looked likely to score all evening. Latching onto a perfectly-weighted Beckham pass behind the defence, Rooney guided the ball first-time past Sorensen into the corner. It's only a consolation though." Wayne Rooney10th of 53 goals.
