We're back underway for the second half in Miami - will the sides keep up the same intensity we saw in the first 45 minutes?

Here's the moment Mark van Bommel was honored for his service with the Netherlands national side tonight before kick-off, with many of his former teammates in attendance. A nice touch.

Gary Lineker, the best poacher of them all, has had his say on England's equaliser...

20:56 BST

Replays suggest that England were a little lucky to have their equaliser counted as the ball struck Rickie Lambert high up the arm from the initial cross - but the goal stands regardless.

Here's what that goal means to Wayne Rooney - he needed that, no matter how easy the chance was.

Some harsh words for England's defence here...

@marksgee: Smalling and Jones? More like Dumb and Dumber.  God help us if these 2 see more than 2mins of play in the actual tournament! !

HALF-TIME: England 1-1 Ecuador

Well that was exciting wasn't it! Just a little over a week away from the World Cup, and we've had a real battle today as both teams look to impress. It's been end-to-end stuff, and both managers will feel their sides could be ahead. Enner Valencia netted a fine header and could have extended his side's lead, but Wayne Rooney's close-range finish is the least the Three Lions deserve after creating a number of chances. More of the same, please!

Wayne Rooney clearly wants more goals tonight as he fizzes in a half-volley from 25 yards, but the goalkeeper takes the sting out of the shot and controls it well.

Roy Hodgson doesn't look too impressed by the defensive work he's seen so far today...

Take a look at these faces - they are not the faces of men who will be starting any World Cup games for England at this rate.

CLOSE FOR VALENCIA!

England are so disjointed at the back and possession is lost casually in the centre before the Ecuador forward is put clean through, and Ben Foster rushes outside his area - he takes a massive air-kick, but it's enough to put off the forward as he pokes the ball wide from 20 yards out. A comedy of errors, there.

HALF-TIME: Netherlands 1-0 Wales

"The visitors can take some satisfaction from the fact that they have made life a bit difficult on Holland in midfield, creating a number of turnovers. Louis van Gaal's side have created a number of chances with their possession, but are lacking some finishing at the moment which has kept this scoreline respectable heading into the break. The visitors have posed little threat in attack, and manager Chris Coleman may want to consider bringing on another striker to provide the Dutch with a bit more of a challenge at the back."

GOAL! England 1-1 Ecuador (Rooney)

It's a messy one, but they all count. The ball comes in from the right and Rickie Lambert's size unsettles the goalkeeper - there's a flurry of activity and the Liverpool man backheels the ball against the post from two yards out, before the United striker finishes into the empty net from a yard. All square!

20:29 BST

04/06/2014

Here's Italy celebrating Claudio Marchisio's goal earlier tonight - the Azzurri are gearing up at just the right time to perform in the World Cup, as they always do.

20:27 BST

04/06/2014

SAVE FROM FOSTER!

Ecuador could so easily be 2-0 up now as Ben Foster races off his line to stop a shot from Montera on the left. James Milner is not having a good game at right-back tonight.

20:26 BST

04/06/2014

SAVE FROM BANGUERA!

The Ecuador keeper has to be alert as Frank Lampard cracks an effort from distance, but the shot-stopper tips the ball wide for a corner. A decent stop, that.

20:24 BST

04/06/2014

SO CLOSE FOR BARKLEY!

England are still creating chances in this frenetic opening, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain wriggling free on the right and drawing the keeper out before pulling it back to Barkley - the Everton man is ready to pull the trigger from 10 yards, but an excellent defensive intervention sees the chance denied.
