ENGLAND stuttered through to the last 16 of the World Cup with a faltering 0-0 draw with Nigeria today.

Sven Goran Eriksson's side failed to impress in the heat of Osaka against a side who were already eliminated from the tournament.

But they did just enough to claim second place in Group F behind Sweden, who drew 1-1 with Argentina.

England will next face Denmark on Saturday as the tournament moves into the straight knock-out phase.
