England 6 Jamaica 0
England 6 Jamaica 0, Wembley Stadium, International Friendly Match, June 3, 2006. The Three Lions rounded off their World Cup preparations with a comprehensive six-nil friendly triumph against Jamaica in which Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick had a good game after coming on as a second half substitute for Chelsea´s Frank Lampard.
Liverpool striker Peter Crouch scored a hat-trick as England beat Jamaica by six goals to nil at Wembley. Frank Lampard put The Three Lions into an early one-nil lead as the twenty-seven-year-old midfielder finished an attack with a powerful shot from inside the middle of the box past Bradford City and Jamaica custodian Donovan Ricketts and into the net in the eleventh minute of the tie before an own goal by Jermaine Taylor made it two-nil to the hosts six minutes later. After conceding the second goal, The Reggae Boyz seemed to lose focus and Crouch and Michael Owen netted two more in the twenty-ninth and thirty-second minutes respectively to hand England a four-nil advantage at the break. Following the restart, Crouch added a fifth goal with a typical close range effort on sixty-seven minutes and the same player rounded off the scoring in the last minute to give the home side a six-nil win over the Jamaicans.
