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.
