Joe Root's second century of the Cricket World Cup helped England cruise to victory over the West Indies, but the celebratory mood was punctured by injury scares for captain Eoin Morgan and opener Jason Roy.
Make no mistake, this was a pivotal match for an England team who could not have afforded a second defeat in their first four matches and still lived up to expectations as firm World Cup favourites.
Joe Root picked up his first two wickets in one-day worldwide cricket since January 2018, both caught-and-bowled, and Barbados-born paceman Jofra Archer (3-30) picked up his first wickets against West Indies.
England won by eight wickets with 101 balls remaining.
England were not flawless and coach Trevor Bayliss will not be happy with the two dropped catches by Mark Wood and Chris Woakes that could have proved costly if Chris Gayle and Andre Russell had been at their ebullient best.
Making matters worse for England, Morgan was the second batsman to hobble off the field in the first innings. And big-hitting opener Jason Roy strained his left hamstring while fielding in the eighth over and didn't re-enter the game.

Archer trapped Sheldon Cottrell lbw on the next delivery and, after Oshane Thomas blocked the hat-trick ball, got his third wicket when he had Carlos Brathwaite (14) caught behind.
Having never batted higher than seven in his previous 91 appearances, the all- rounder was handed an emergency elevation and chipped in with an assured 40. Gayle was on 15 when Wood dropped him in the outfield. He clubbed a pair of sixes in the same over from Adil Rashid but was eventually out for 21, caught by Woakes off Wood's bowling. Recalled paceman Shannon Gabriel took the only two wickets for the West Indies and appeared to pick up a leg strain in his last over. He drove the next ball down the ground for six just for good measure.
But the 39-year-old left-hander was out for 36 from 41 balls - setting the bilateral run record at 1,632 - when he pulled Liam Plunkett into the deep and Bairstow took a running catch.
When Nicholas Pooran and Shimron Hetmyer, the future of Caribbean batting, were together, West Indies could have tested England but Morgan turned to a seventh bowler in Root in the absence of a second spinner in Moeen and was instantly rewarded.
Root was the unlikely partnership breaker when he pouched Hetmyer's tame drive and then also caught and bowled Holder in his follow-up over, Holder dismissed off a leading edge playing for non-existent turn.
A heavy loss to England and a washout against winless South Africa have been compounded for the West Indies by Andre Russell's creaky knees.
