England progress, Argentina out

Posted on 12 June 2002  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

England gathered the required point against Nigeria in Osaka and are now set to face Denmark on Saturday, while Argentina joined fellow tournament favourites France in heading out of the World Cup.

Sven's men pretty much bossed the game in the heat and humidity of Osaka and David Seaman was rarely troubled against a team already eliminated from the competition.

England displayed a degree of control with the fact that they did not need to take any risks particularly evident. At one stage a defeat would have seen England through when Sweden were leading through Svensson, but Crespo equalised from a penalty rebound.

Teddy took to the field on 68 minutes and improved the flow of the game with his sure-footed link play. He had the best chance of the match when Cole's crossed from the left deflected off Owen and fell to Ted in front of goal. However, he could not keep his left foot shot down and the ball lofted over the bar.

England saw out time, while Argentina were fighting for their World Cup lives in Miyagi. Sweden held firm and the so-called Group of Death claimed the most high-profile casualty.
