England go to the round of 16 without Michael Owen

Share |

England and Sweden tied 2-2 in a very exciting game that gave them the ticket to the second stage. The English team still cannot beat Sweden.

The English side went in front when Joe Cole hit a sensational lob from 35 yards, but then Marcus Allback equalised when he headed home from a right-wing corner.

The coach made a wise decision and Steven Gerrard headed in Joe Cole's 85th-minute cross, but Henrik Larsson levelled for Sweden in injury time.

The bad luck, however, hit the English squad. A knee injury to striker Michael Owen will have him miss the rest of the tournament.

It's important to say that England will now face Ecuador on Sunday at 1600 BST in Stuttgart, while Sweden play Germany in Munich 24 hours earlier.

Group B final positions:

England (7)
Sweden (5)
Paraguay (3)
Trinidad & Tobago (1)
