Night­mare as Car­son caught nap­ping

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT -

CON­TIN­UED FROM BACK PAGE But at the same time, I am very happy with the fact that we man­aged to per­form so well and get a well-de­served vic­tory in front of our home fans whom we let down by fail­ing to qual­ify from this cam­paign.”

A night­mare night for Eng­land saw them go 2-0 down early on when keeper Scott Car­son com­pletely mis­judged Nico Kran­j­car’s weak shot and helped it into the net and Ivica Olic slipped in a sec­ond af­ter hor­rific de­fend­ing.

Frank Lam­pard pulled one back from the spot af­ter Jer­main De­foe was fouled, be­fore David Beck­ham, win­ning a 99th cap, set up Peter Crouch to level it.

But Mladen Pet­ric fired in from 25 yards in the 78th minute to end any hope of an Eng­land come­back.
