World Cup Day 7 - Sweden almost there

A late Freddie Ljunberg header gave Sweden a 1-0 victory over Ecuador tonight, and in doing so ended Paraguay's hopes of qualification and any realistic hopes Trinidad & Tobago have of qualifying.

With one game left the group standings are as follows:

England 6pts
Sweden 4pts
Trinidad & Tobago 1pt
Ecuador 0pts

A point from the Sweden v England match-up takes England through as winners with Sweden as runners-up. Incidentally, prior to the game both sides will know the potential second round match-ups first and second place will bring, whilst Trinidad & Tobago will hope for an England win couple with a win for themselves over Paraguay to then potentially go through as runners-up themselves.
