The Carroll header was little short of breathtaking, one of the best goals of its type you will ever see. Gerrard's cross, for the second game in succession, was perfect and the power of the header was nothing short of awesome. Brilliant and one of the goals of the tournament so far.
But it got better. I will say now that no other team in the competition could recover and win from going ahead and then conceding two goals to find themselves in arrears. Every other team would have been so psychologically scarred that, after pulling level, they would have played for the draw. But not England!
And who was responsible for triggering the recovery? Most would say Walcott, but in truth it was the much maligned John Terry. True his header was brilliantly saved, but the fact that he forced that save sent the adrenaline pumping and put the fear of God into the Swedes. Hope surged through the veins and England never looked back from that point.
True Walcott's goal was lucky - the keeper should have saved it - but Sweden's first was luckier. Our third goal was, in contrast, simply sublime. The move started deep in out half. We passed the ball superbly and Walcott's burst beyond the last defender and cross were breathtaking. And Welbeck's finish? Well if Zola meant his back heeled goal, then Welbeck meant this one! A truly brilliant goal and the best of the competition so far in my book.
There was still time, of course, for Gerrard to miss a sitter!
So, draw with the Ukraine and we are through. But we need to beat them and pray for Sweden to draw with France - the key now is to avoid Spain in the next round. Well done Woy!
