England beats USA in Friendly


England defeated the United States 2-0 Wednesday at Wembley Stadium. 

John Terry, who was named captain for the game, scored a goal for England only 1 week after missing the penalty kick that would have given Chelsea its first Champions League title.

Terry scored on a perfect free kick cross from David Beckham who played half the game and was replaced by newcomer David Bentley.

The second goal for England was scored by Steven Gerrard in the 59th minute. 

England did not look overly dominant but did enough to get the job done. 


International Roundup:

In other International games on Tuesday, France defeated Ecuador 2-0 behind a pair a goals from Bafetimbi Gomis. The game was Gomis international debut. 

Also on Tuesday, Germany saw their 2 goal lead disappear as they were held to a 2-2 draw against Belarus. Miraslav Klose and an own goal from Belarus was the scoring for Germany.

Germany appeared to be tired towards the end of the game which led to sloppy defense, and 2 goals from Belarus striker Vitaly Bulyga.
