Moore and more

As of tonight we can claim to have a goalscorer at this year's World Cup jamboree.

Before the tournament kicked off, you would have got very slim odds of either Jean-Alain Boumsong or Craig Moore beating Michael Owen to achieving that feat - but in tonight's game with Croatia, Aussie Moore blasted home a penalty equaliser shortly before the break. The goal helped Australia towards a 2-2 draw which ensured they qualified for the knock-out stages of the World Cup for the first time in their history.

So, congratulations Craig on the goal and on your nation's progress, and good luck for the next match against Italy - you'll need it.

Oh, and come back to Tyneside in one piece and carry on playing the way you have been on the world stage...
