Rooney/Owen to start up-front against Sweden

England's goalscorers against T&T, Peter Crouch and Steven Gerrard, won't start against Sweden on Tuesday. They're both on a yellow card and Sven won't risk them – a second yellow would mean a one-match ban, and we could really use the pair in the second-round match against Germany or Ecuador.

Wayne Rooney will start instead of Crouch, with Owen Hargreaves deputising for Gerrard. I'd also like to see Aaron Lennon start instead of David Beckham. What is clear is that Eriksson desperately wants to win the Sweden game and top Group B: 'There are a lot of advantages to winning the group,' he said. 'All the way along you then get an extra day before each round, until the final itself. And England have not beaten Sweden in 38 years. Before leaving this job, I would like to do something about that.'
