England won the match 2-0. ,. England, Ecuador, Germany advance to Round 2 By DAVID MORDKOPF ASSOCIATED PRESS BERLIN — England and Ecuador vaulted into the . second round of the World Cup with wins, and host Germany advanced without even having to play. Fredrik Ljungberg ended Sweden's scoring drought with a dramatic 89th-minute goal to beat Paraguay 1-0 and improve the Swedes' chances of reaching the second round. Ecuador beat Costa Rica 3-0 in Hamburg,.^ win i; ; that.was enough.to.sendboth.theSouthiArrieiricanB I and 'tier many 'rn'£6'th'e v Kn6'cRbut roundTTheywiir'" play for first place in Group A on Tuesday, then play the advancers from Group. B in the next round. • One of those teams will be England, which beat Trinidad and Tobago 2-0 on Thursday. The hosts, who beat Poland 1-0 on Wednesday, also qualified with Ecuador's win. Winless Costa Rica and Poland have been eliminated. In Berlin, Sweden waited until the very end to pull out the victory. Johan Elmander, who had come on as a substitute just three minutes earlier, set up the goal when he swung a pass from 25 yards on the right side toward Marcus Allback on the left. Allback in turn headed a pass from the top-left corner of the 6-yard box to a charging Ljungberg on the opposite side of the goal. Ljungberg jumped and powerfully headed the ball down to the far side to win it. "Today we scored and have something to celebrate," Ljungberg said. Sweden controlled much of the match and Allback nearly scored in the 59th minute, but Denis Caniza made a flying goal-line clearance. With England already qualified, the loss eliminated Paraguay. Sweden plays England and Paraguay plays Trinidad on Tuesday to decide the second qualifier. "It's going to be a massive game," Ljungberg said, referring to the match against England. Sweden goalkeeper Andreas Isaksson returned after missing the 0-0 draw with T&T with a concussion, but had little to do for the first 45 minutes. He wasn't much busier in the second half, although Nelson Valdez had two good chances. Aldo Bobadilla was superb in goal for Paraguay after coming on in the eighth minute against England when regular Justo Villar tore a muscle in his right thigh. Bobadilla made one of the best saves of the tournament thus far about 10 minutes into Thursday's game, when he dived at full extension to his left to stop a 30-yard blast from Kim Kallstrom. England, which used Wayne Rooney as a second-' half substitute, advanced after late goals from Peter 1 Crouch and Steven Gerrard. Crouch rose over a Trinidad defender to head in a cross by David Beckham in the 83rd minute, and Gerrard added another in injury time to give England its second straight win in the tournament. England controlled play most of the game in Nuremberg, but missed countless good chances, raising Trinidad's hopes of a second straight : 0-0,draw ' • ' is- in "ff would"BeTaif'tb'say that you haven't Sefen the best of us yet, but we put ourselves in a good position," Beckham said. "We know we can play better." Rooney, who broke his right foot April 29, came on as a substitute in the 58th minute, replacing Michael Owen. The Manchester United striker was cleared to play earlier in the day by British doctors. He has been training with the England squad since June 5,, The winning goal unfolded when Beckham took' his time and found the 6-foot-7 Crouch in front of the Trinidad net. Crouch leapt over Brett Sancho and '„ headed the ball past Shaka Hislop for England's fir§t second-half goal in a World Cup since 1998. ',! "It was so much work. England got so much posi^, tion on the ball," said Trinidad striker Dwight ' Yorke, who used to play for Manchester United. "It'.', was a special moment because I have so many ', friends, so many memories of playing in England. 1 '' Carlos Tenorio and Agustin Delgado each scored, their second goals of the tournament for Ecuador,',' while Ivan Kaviedes added the game's third in in- ,','i jury time. "We're very happy for having qualified, aside ^ from me having scored another goal for my team,'^', Delgado said. "We're now thinking about being ,, group leaders. We think about winning every game^' Ecuador needs only a draw against Germany to ',' claim first place in Group A. "Our big concern now is to play a great match ( ' against Germany, and eventually against England, if it happens," coach Luis Suarez said.
