  Rooney scores two as England win
Updated 21 June 2004, 21.36
Wayne Rooney scored twice for England
Wayne Rooney was the hero again at Euro 2004, scoring twice as England beat Croatia 4-2 in Portugal.

That put them into a quarter-final against the hosts on Thursday, after France beat Switzerland to top Group B.

It could have been very different when Croatia took a shock lead, but England hit back to level through Paul Scholes, his first goal for 30 England games.

Rooney helped make that goal, then scored twice to put the team in front, with Frank Lampard hitting the fourth.

Croatia did cause England problems when they struck to get the score back to 3-2, but Lampard quickly restored the two-goal lead.

Even though they are through England have lots of work to do, after conceding two untidy goals from set-pieces and didn't defend a number of others well either.

England looked brilliant going forward, but will need to tighten up at the back if they are to defeat Portugal and reach the semi-finals.
