best game i watched him play other than his WC win was in Wellington, NZ
playing the AB's in 2003. england had the best team they'd ever put together in my era. Johnson, Greenwood,jasonLeonard, neil Back, Dalliglio and young wilko who never looked out of place in a team with this much experience
AB's dominated the first half, territory and possesion, but the England forwards put up a stone wall and from behind that wall was wilko taking sniper shots at goal
despite england being reduced to 13 men AB's still couldnt score.
carlos spencer was getting us killed that day and missing his shots at goal. wilko on the other hand slotted 4 from 5 and added a drop goal.
england won 15-13. sad day for NZ but i was impressed and knew someting great was happening.
England went on to win the worldCup that year but their momentum started in Wellington imho
