I have just returned after a night out watching England annihilate a strong German side. I don't think I have ever witnessed a match like it. I think the German's scoring early only helped to wake England up and from then on they dominated the match. Michael Owen was awesome and England played as a solid unit. Well done to Sven and the boys.
As I am out most of today there will not be much news but please don't forget all the fantastic Menus and Skins Shlomy has provided for you recently.
As a celebration of the England victory why not check out the cool images of Beckham, Scholes and Owen which you can get direct from the Soccer Gaming Download Centre.
