Stage one complete

They've not been pretty, they've not set the world alight but England have completed the first stage if the World Cup mission by winning our group last night. Joe Cole's goal was stunning and deserved too - he's been England's best player in the tournament so far. The rest of the performance was, well, fairly uninspiring but you've always got to look on the bright side of life. This is a team of matchwinners and things can only get better.

Not that Micheal Owen will feel that way. It was a horrible injury for him especially considering how hard he had to work to get himself fit for the competition in the first place. I can't look at the telly when the replays come on. It just looks too painful and that's just me. Imagine Owen's heartache. Didn't I tell you the World Cup would be full of emotions? Hopefully he and England will recover soon...England definetly need to do something before Ecuador come calling on Sunday.
