England 1 - Ecuador 0

This was taken prior to the England/Ecuador game

So, England are in the last 8. I remain to be convinced - Beckham's goal was excellent, but it wasn't a convincing win, there were several places where Ecuador could have turned it around.

Once again Sven has said 'we can perform even better'. It'd be nice to see some evidence of this! Yes, it should be hard, but should it be quite so hard against Ecuador?

The next game is either Portugal or Holland. This will be a crunch game (as it should be for a quarter final). I want to believe England will get through, at the moment I'm rather cynical about this. I'm not the only one.
