World Cup 2nd round: England 1 (Beckham 60 mins), Ecuador 0. England are through to the quarter-finals for the 9th time. They still don't look to me like they're quite good enough to win the World Cup just yet, but they are certainly getting better, and Wayne Rooney looks like he's hitting top form now after "that injury". As for David Beckham, what an amazing goal he scored - one of his trademark pin-point-accurate long-range free kicks. Oddly though, this is the first one he's scored from himself in around 3 years. What a perfect time to change that!
