Knockout Stage

2nd Round
30th June: vs. Argentina (2:2 aet) in St. Etienne.

A team to please the fans, and then the Team of God had the chance to wipe out memories of the hand of God goal in Mexico 1986.

For 75 minutes England were in God's hands after David Beckham was sent off at the start of the second half. The ten men of England took the game into extra-time, to eventually exit another major tournament through not scoring all their penalties.
