A worldview is a set of claims that purport to be based on ultimate reality.

England 1, Ecuador 0

The goal creates history as Beckham becomes the first England player to score in three World Cup tournaments

David Beckham became the first England player to score at three World Cups as his free-kick earned a quarter-final tie against Portugal or Holland.

Beckham beautifully curled home from 30 yards on the hour mark, but England made hard work of Ecuador.

The South Americans could have gone in front early on, Carlos Tenorio's shot deflecting off Ashley Cole and on to the bar after John Terry's mistake.

Frank Lampard missed two fine chances but England had done enough to win.

Sven-Goran Eriksson's side will now play either Portugal or Holland – who meet later on Sunday – on Saturday 1 July at 1600 BST in Gelsenkirchen.
