Steven Gerrard scored a goal in injury time and England got its second straight win in Group B to clinch a spot in the next round.


England controlled play for most of the game, but Crouch and others missed countless good chances, raising Trinidad's hopes of holding its second straight favored opponent to a 0-0 draw. It tied Sweden in its opening match, Los Angeles Times reports.

Twenty-six England fans were detained or arrested in Nuremberg before, during and after the nailbiting victory.

British police in Germany said 16 were picked up at the Franken stadium where England secured the 2-0 win, mainly for trying to climb into the ground or being in unauthorised areas, according to ITV.com.
