Eng­land 3 Egypt 1, Wemb­ley Sta­dium, In­ter­na­tion­al Friendly Mat­ch, Mar­ch 3, 2010. The Three Li­ons came from a goal down to be­at Egypt by three goals to one in the friendly at Wem­bey. Man­chester United´s Mi­chael Car­rick came on as a sub­sti­tute for Frank Lam­pard at the break and the mid­fielder gave a good ac­count of him­self dur­ing the sec­ond half.

Bor­uss­sia Dort­mund at­tack­er Mo­hamed Zid­an gave the vis­it­ing out­fit the lead af­ter twenty-three min­utes, but Three Three Li­ons hit back early in the sec­ond ha­lf as Tot­ten­ham Hot­spur marks­man Pe­ter Crouch con­ver­ted a low cross from Gar­eth Bar­ry in the fifty-sixth min­ute of ac­tion. Spurred on by the equal­iser, Eng­land push­ed hard for an­oth­er goal and it ar­rived when Man­chester City flanker Shaun Wright-Phil­lips ham­mered ho­me a re­bound from a Ja­mes Mil­ner shot in the sev­enty-fifth min­ute of the mid­week en­counter. But it was not over yet as Crouch ad­ded a third wi­th ten min­utes left of nor­mal time to hand Fa­bio Capello´s te­am a con­fid­ence-boost­ing three-one win.
