Match No. 922 - Friday, 6th September 2013, 8:00pm

  • Assist: Frank Lampard. Good tenacious work on the left touchline by Welbeck and Cole sees the ball pulled-back to Lampard on the corner of the area. He sets a short pass into the path of Garrard who is steaming in from midfield. Gerrard hits a first time, 25 yard, right-footed shot into the bottom left corner, off the post, beating the keeper at his near post. Steven Gerrard20th of 21 goals, 12' (11:27)
  • Assist: Theo Walcott. After a bit of penalty area ping-pong in the Moldovan box the ball breaks to Walcott inside the area on the right. He hits a swerving shot straight at the keeper, on his near post. The keeper only manages to parry the ball along the goal line where Lambert is lurking to head the ball into the empty net. Rickie Lambert2nd of 3 goals, 26' (25:53)
  • Assist: Rickie Lambert. A long ball from Gerrard deep in his own half finds Lambert just inside the Moldovan half on the right. Lambert chips the ball into the area where Welbeck has got in front of his man. He takes a touch to go around the keeper and slots the ball into the empty net from 6 yards out with his left foot. Danny Welbeck7th of 16 goals, 45' +1 (45:47)
  • Assist: Rickie Lambert. Lambert receives the ball on the left and threads a well timed pass, through two defenders, into Welbeck who lifts the ball over the on-rushing keeper. Danny Welbeck8th of 16 goals, 50' (49:57)

      45' Time wasting (presumably). Ruled marginally offside but the referee cards him for taking his shot after the whistle has blown. Very harsh. Misses next match.
