    It's ok. The memory of Rooney lamping him during that tunnel fight in Istanbul made it worthwhile. Getting beaten up by a 17-year-old must have stung.

    Wahey. 2-0

    Scoreline betrays what was essentially an average England performance until Aaron Lennon got involved. England through though

    they say its the sign of a great team if you can play badly & still win, so hopefully England do improve.

    Great to see Rooney on, but Owen probably is a worry it will be interesting to see what Sven does with his striking pair now that Crouch has scored, Lampard has been odd as well the chances he has gotten to score thus far in the tournament if it were for chelsea i'd bet my last dollar he score 8 times out of 10. But we are secured a second round place most likely againts ecuador & thats the important thing.

    Rooney looked decent out there. Wouldn't expect him to light up the pitch after such a long layoff but did well considering. Lennon injected some variety in attack. Decent performance by Engalnd against a stubborn T&T defence. Will have to get better as the tournament goes on though. Lampard's shooting was terrible though.

    Geez, England. Not a particularly good performance by any stretch of the imagination, and it'd be foolish to gloss over 170 minutes without a goal just because both games were won.

    Lennon was great after he came on, and as usual Terry had a good game and Rooney looked pretty decent, but you'd be hard pressed to find many players for England who played to the best of their abilities, if any. Not looking like a world cup winning side at all. Still, qualified.

    Decent performance IMO, but top marks to Sven for the decision to change the shape.

    Downing looks out of his depth though.

    Awful the word to describe that performance, of course the last 10 will cloud people's judgement. Crouch was terrible, Ashley Cole still looks short of match fitness as does Owen.

    Aaron Lennon was the ray of hope, he can do damage in the last 20. It also meant Beckham was playing right back which, lets face it, he obviously prefers since he spends most of his time on the half way line smashing long balls.

    reasonable performance, england in control for almost all of the match, comfortbale win in the end, no concerns to be had really, shaky in defence as england always are, missing so many chances is also a concern, but otherwise nothing to shout about good or bad. Good result, onwards to the next game.

    Well played Sweden, purely for the fact that goal got me some money from a bet.
    Bit of divided loyalties though considering it means England aren't completely sure they've won the group now.

    Way to keep your investors nervous, Sweden. Still, a win is a win.

    Sets up a genuine match for top spot anyway, which should be entertaining, plus the prospect of a T&T second round berth if they win and Sweden lose.
