England through to the quarter finals

More thrilling football!! England beat Ecuador in not one of their best performances, but it still counts. David Beckham was the key – he scored another brilliant goal from a free-kick. Check out this link from the BBC site that displays a shockwave animation of the goal – you can change the camera angles and speed, very cool.

Also, Portugal are through after beating the Dutch in what has to be the dirtiest game in the World Cup so far. 16 yellow cards, 4 red cards, a Figo headbut, and several terrible challenges were the highlights (?) of this game. Portugal now meets England in the next round.
