Match No. 882 - Wednesday, 3rd March 2010, 8:00pm

  • Assist: Gareth Barry. "Capello made a double change at the break, sending on Crouch and Michael Carrick for Defoe and Lampard. And it was the giant striker who made the big impact with the equaliser after 56 minutes. He crowned England's most fluent move of the night as Steven Gerrard found Barry, whose pass was swept home expertly by Crouch." Peter Crouch19th of 22 goals. Right-footed from 12 yards., 56' 55:58
  • "And the transformation was complete as Wright-Phillips put England ahead 15 minutes from time. Substitute James Milner, on for Gerrard, saw his shot palmed away by El Hadari, but Wright-Phillips responded with a swerving shot, which the keeper could only help into his net." Shaun Wright-Phillips6th of 6 goals. Right-footed from 17 yards., 75' 74:28
  • Assist: Shaun Wright-Phillips. "Crouch grabbed his second five minutes later when Wright-Phillips confirmed the good impression he made with an inviting cross that was again perfectly converted. The Spurs forward appeared to be comfortably offside but he clinically took advantage of the linesman's misjudgement." Peter Crouch20th of 22 goals. Right-footed from 6 yards., 80' 79:35
