The Three Lions take on Russia with a place in the final of the International Tournament at stake.
England v Russia
International Cerebral Palsy Football Tournament
Monday 21 May 2007
England have a chance of reaching the final of the International Cerebral Palsy Football Tournament - but they need to overcome the might of Russia on Monday afternoon.
After slipping to a 6-0 defeat against Iran in their first game on Friday - the margin of defeat could have been wider had it not been for some excellent goalkeeping from Gavin Wood - the Three Lions bounced back to beat Holland 24 hours later.
In a game where the defences dominated, England grabbed a last-gasp goal to record their second victory over Holland this year.
Michael Barker was the hero, directing Gary Davies' driven cross past the Dutch keeper.
England made it back-to-back wins on Sunday by beating the USA 3-1.
The Three Lions were rewarded for dominating the first half when Barker drove home a 22nd minute free-kick to put his side ahead.
The USA responded with an equaliser ten minutes after the interval, but England went ahead for a second time courtesy of Wayne Ward who latched on to Barker's cross before slotting home.
Michael Wilson (pictured) then scored his side's third, although there were a few nervous glances when the USA pulled a goal back at the death.
England: Gavin Wood, Jordan Raynes, Stephen Brown, Gary Davies, Andrew Taylor, Matthew Ellis, Richard Fox, Junior Gordon, Michael Barker, Wayne Ward, Stephen Prior, Michael Wilson, Kwame Osei.
