What a brilliant match. Atmosphere was great. Team played much better than expected and deserved to beat the Spanish, as they did.

I do love attending matches at Wembley and being part of a vast crowd all singing a hymn to God. We sat next to a young Spanish family and although the crowd was entirely patriotic, it was, and always is, that open-hearted patriotism that enjoys the visiting team supporters also expressing their own patriotism.

The only time I've not felt that atmosphere was when England played Egypt and the atmosphere was much tenser and more hostile, not least because it was not clear what the Egyptian fans were chanting in Arabic, and also because there were no Christians at all playing in the Egyptian squad.

Joe Hart is the luckiest keeper in England. Way to go 3 Lions!

Even if Beckham decides not to re-new his contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy, and he returns to Europe to play, I applaud him for all he's done for football (soccer) in the USA. The sport has grown so drastically here, new TV deals, higher professional wages, soccer-specific stadiums, higher attendances, amoung other things. Not only has he helped the marketability of the sport in the States, but he drastically improved the marketability of the USA's Major League Soccer around the world. It's a respected league world-round now. All in all, thank you Becks, the past 5 years has been awesome. If you leave MLS after the season, I bid you good luck. Atleast we get to see you in one more game for the Galaxy this Sunday. So I hope Becks and the Galaxy win the MLS Cup this Sunday, send Becks off with a title!

Agreed again.  It's been a pleasure to have the opportunity to see him play here and raise the bar for the home league.
