  • Assist: Gareth Barry. Following a corner the ball is cleared to Barry 30 yards out and he crosses to Cahill, who has stayed up and is inside the right side of the penalty area. Cahill receives the ball on his chest, 15 yards out to the right. Cahill chases the ball which is heading towards the keeper and manages, whilst sliding, to get there first and stab the ball with his right foot under the onrushing keeper. The ball takes a big deflection off the keeper's legs and along the ground into the left side netting. Gary Cahill1st of 5 goals, 13' (12:07)
  • Downing's corner from the right is headed by Rooney from 6 yards out, level with the left post, into the top left corner past the onlooking keeper. Wayne Rooney27th of 53 goals, 21' (20:52)
  • A breakaway by England finds Walcott on the ball 30 yards out in the centre of the pitch. He passes wide right to Young who advances into the box and hits a first time pass across the goal to an unmarked Rooney who taps in, left-footed, from 4 yards. Wayne Rooney28th of 53 goals, 45' +1 (45:46)
