  • Assist: Joe Cole. "A Lampard corner is only half cleared by the Polish defence, Cole rifles back in a shot on the half-volley which Owen prods between the legs of a defender from about two-and-a-half yards. It's no more than England deserve." Michael Owen33rd of 40 goals. Left-footed from 6 yards., 43' 42:33
