They left as underdogs and returned as heroes. England defied the doubters and the critics to put on a dazzling display in Japan and Korea that united the nation and had people believing they could emulate the success of their 1966 predecessors. After a slow start against a solid Sweden side the team's World Cup came alive against bitter rivals and tournament favourites, Argentina, in the magnificent setting of the Sapporo stadium. Here the side produced a performance of skill, courage and bravery to beat the Argentinians and banish the memories of The Hand of God' and France '98.
For David Beckham, the scorer of the only goal, the victory was particularly sweet after his sending off against the same opposition four years earlier. Buoyed by this success the team went onto qualify from the 'Group of Death' while Argentina made an early exit from the tournament many had expected them to win. In the last 16 Beckham's boys produced a display that had football fans purring with delight up and down the country, as they crushed the hapless Danes 3-0. Sadly, in the end the samba beat of the Brazilians proved too strong, despite Michael Owen giving England an early lead, and England's World Cup Journey was over...but not before they'd done the country proud!
