  • Assist: Glen Johnson. "A fine, simple goal. Walcott showed strength and intelligence in midfield before picking out Johnson on the overlap.

Right-footed from 7 yards., 10' 09:26
  • Assist: Steven Gerrard.

Notes

  • Player InjuriesWalcott was injured in the build up to England's first goal. He had jammed his right foot under von Bergen's leg [9:25]. "Sadly for England, their delight was marred by the sight of Walcott lying injured. He had made a confident start, but his game ended with him being stretchered down the tunnel with his right ankle heavily strapped."
    Defoe also left on a stretcher "Bent replaced the injured Defoe, who limped off after Johnson's goal..."
