England 2 - 0 Trinidad & Tobago (fulltime)

As I said, England's finishing did end up being the determining factor in this game. They have serious talent on their team, but getting the ball on target seemed impossible for most of the game.

Not much else to say here, actually, other than that even with this decent result England doesn't yet look like a team that could threaten a top team. They were lucky to win against Paraguay and this result a bit fortunate as well. T&T clearly didn't have the firepower to threaten England much, and even so the English required some heroics to save the day.

Groupwise, this puts England in charge, with six points, +3 goal difference, and a ticket to the second round. It's hard to see them going too much farther than that though, since both Germany and Ecuador are both showing much more menace. Either of those matchups look like bad news for the English.
