We have won the group. But if half of the nation haven't died from half attacks, we will be playing Ecuador in Round 2. Today's match against Sweden was a poor one. Rooney started with Owen but 1 minute in, Owen injured himself, and it looked bad! It looks as if he will miss the whole of the world cup now! But England picked themselves up and minutes before half time, Joe Cole scored one of the goals of the tournament! We went in 1-0 at Half Time.
Minute after Half Time, Sweden scored to equalise. Pathetic defending continued when Sweden hit the bar twice and we were lucky to still be in the match. At the end of the Second half, Gerrard headed a Joe Cole cross into their net and we were back infront. But as usual our defenders missed a long throw in and Henrik Larsson equaled the game. Thats how it finished. We have won the group, but when we play a half decent team, my god are we in trouble!
