Powell said: The experience has been phenomenal, playing six games and getting to the Euro final -- we have never done that before, unlike the Germans. This will make us stronger, we will go back and work harder and make sure we are in it again. The future for us is bright. Englands chief destroyers last night were Inka Grings and veteran Birgit Prinz -- both struck twice with Grings ensuring she finished as the tournaments top goalscorer with six and Prinz taking her tally to 125 international goals.

Fresh from celebrating Eng- lands qualifying performance against Croatia, Capello was asked to pass judgement on the man (both right) who splits opin- ion as often as defences. Beckham is always with us because, for me, he is an impor- tant player. He is good in the group and is good at every moment in training. Andthat,fromamanwhogives nothing away, is about as big a vote of confidence as youre likely to get. Beckhams inclusion in the 23- man squad as much for his mentorial role as his cameo appearances from the bench would mean tears for one of the young right-sided stars. After Aaron Lennons electric performance on Wednesday and Theo Walcotts hat-trick in Zagreb, it could mean Shaun Wright-Phillips misses out. Beckham has proved hes still got it, whatever it is and if the man who has delivered eight winsoutof eightthinkssimilarly, thatll do for me.
