Table of Contents
England's World Cup dream lives on as they beat Slovenia 1-0 in Port Elizabeth and progress to the last 16 of the tournament.

The crucial goal arrived on 22 minutes when James Milner delivered a superb cross from the right wing and Jermain Defoe slipped in front of his marker to fire home past Slovenia keeper Samir Handanovic.

The misery for Slovenia was then completed at the final whistle when the news came through that a last-gasp United States winner over Algeria had eliminated them from the competition.

England: David James; Glen Johnson, Matthew Upson, John Terry, Ashley Cole; Gareth Barry; James Milner, Frank Lampard; Steven Gerrard; Jermain Defoe (Emile Heskey, 86), Wayne Rooney (Joe Cole, 72)
