What else can they do other than score goals that wins games. Admittedly both have played better but at the end of the day goals win games not 9 out of 10's ratings every game. I would settle for the current form if it meant we won the competition.
Difference between Argentina and Mexico was match winners. I thought both sides were equal in nearly every department on the night except Argentina had a match winner who scored the best goal of the tournament so far in my opinion. England have 5 players capable of winning games with a piece of brilliance - yesterday was Beckhams turn, Lampard, Gerrard's and Rooneys time is yet to come Im sure.
