England hit Ireland for six to book a ticket to Beijing for next year's Paralympic Games.
England 6-1 Republic of Ireland
Cerebral Palsy 7-a-side World Championship
Seventh-eighth place play-off
Rio de Janeiro 2007
England's Cerebral Palsy football team qualified emphatically for the 2008 Beijing Paralympics with a magnificent 6-1 victory over Ireland on Sunday.
The win sealed seventh place out of the 16 competing teams, ensuring The CP side - funded by The FA - will travel east with the already qualified Blind squad to compete under the GB banner next year.
Precise passing moves punctuated by goals of outstanding quality were the key characteristics of their final performance in this competition in Rio de Janeiro, where temperatures at times had reached well into the nineties.
England took the lead through Michael Barker's sublime free-kick before the goalscorer turned provider for Wayne Ward to double the Three Lions' advantage.
Barker soon made it three with a sublime turn and shot from 20 yards before Richard Fox fired home an imperious 20 yard volley with his left foot.
Ward then scored his second and England's fifth before half-time to confirm their dominance.
Ireland reorganised in the second half but they could not prevent England adding a sixth, the unmarked Andy Taylor heading Michael Wilson's corner at the back post.
Ireland managed a late consolation but it was England's day.
Phil Lane, Chief Executive of ParalympicsGB said: "I'd like to congratulate the team on this achievement. ParalympicsGB is delighted to be able to take two British football teams to the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games, which is a great sign for the sport ahead of the home Games in London in 2012."
The Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games will be the 13th Paralympic Summer Games and will take place in Beijing, Hong Kong (equestrian) and Qingdao (sailing) from 6-17 September. The opening ceremony for the Games will be 12 days after the end of the Olympic Games.
There will be 11 days of sport in total and the seven-a-side football will start on 8 September with the finals eight days later.
The last time GB took a football team to the Paralympic Games was in 1992 in Barcelona.
The FA are continually looking to recruit more players for its Disability football teams and into over 50 Ability Counts clubs around the country.
