England , who is currently sitting in Group B with a win and a draw , will take on Trinidad and Tobago on 6/16 midnight. Both teams know that a win here will almost guarantee progress to the final 16 of the FIFA World Cup. If Sven Goran Eriksson's England team wins and Sweden and Paraguay draw in the other group match later , Englang could finish top of the group.England put up a below-par performance in their previous game against Paraguay , only managed snatch the win thanks to an own goal by the Paraguayan captain Gamarra. Judging from this , a win against Trinidad and Tobago will not be an easy job.
Trinidad and Tobago put many off their chairs by taking a courageous draw in their World Cup debut against Sweden , but should England regain their form this matchup will not be a easy game for the taking. England manager Eriksson also announced on 6/14 that star striker Rooney could make his first appearance as a substitute.
The 20 year old is still recovering from a broken metatarsal which he suffered in April and a start is certainly out of the picture. Owen , his usual striking partner never looked threatening and was taken out on the 55th minute in the game against Paraguay, could still start this game.
Without a healthy Rooney , the 204cm Crouch will once again play alongside Owen. Eriksson might also give 17 year old Walcott a run as a substitute debut in the second half.
Trinidad and Tobago is the smallest nation to take part in the 2006 World Cup. However , their manager Beenhakker said that his team might just have what it takes to shock the soccer world yet again in this upcoming game against England.
One of their starting defenders , Avery John will be banned for this game due to his dismissal following a red card against Sweden. While Dwight Yorke , who was Beckham's teammate at Manchester United , will be the ace forward for Beenhakker.

Beside Yorke , who will probably play behind the strikers as a supporting role , another forward Stern John , will be a player to watch as well. He is currently the top scorer for the national team , bagging 65 goals in 96 appearances.
