Michael Carrick completed his season with another impressive display in the heart of midfield as England overcame Colombia in New Jersey, with Jermain Defoe a 71st minute substitute.
The win saw Sven Goran Eriksson's side make it win-double on their short USA tour and it is Michael Owen who will grab the headlines following his hat-trick and moving into 4th place in the England all-time goalscorers chart.
After a fairly uneventful first half an hour, the game sprang to life six minutes later when Owen opened the scoring - the first of three goals in nine minutes. The Real madrid striker added to his tally on 43 minutes, slotting home confidently after a clever piece of work from Peter Crouch.
However, just before the break, a Yebes header from a corner kick somehow managed to sneak past goalkeeper David James and defenders to reduce the deficit.
The second half continued in lively mode with Owen netting his third with a fine volley from a David Beckham cross - his 32nd in England colours - before Colombia began to seriously test sub keeper Robert Green.
Colombia gained some reward for their improved display when Ramiriez made it 3-2 12 minutes before time in front of a crowd recorded at 58,000.
It has been a successful tour for Carrick who BBC pundit Alan Hansen afterwards described as the most influential player over the two games.
