England have made it through to the quarter finals, still without having putting in a fully convincing performance.  A very good free kick from Beckham was enough to see England through.  Although Ecuador did show some threat and, in truth, had (and missed) the best chance of the first half, much bigger challenges are still to come.  The question throughout was less about the opposition than whether England would be able to get it together enough to put the ball in the back of the net.  Some good movements came to nothing.  Frank Lampard’s terrible form in front of goal continued, as he (along with everyone else) clearly became increasingly frustrated by his wayward shooting.  Nevertheless, he can do it, and let’s hope he recovers his game before it’s too late for England.  On a more important note, as you can see, I got behind the team by changing my colours for the day.  This just does highlight, however, that I really do need a shirt more particularly tailored to my own individual needs, as if you look closely you will see that this is nt a very good fit for me.
