Terry header hands England victory

Published Add your comment

Captain John Terry atoned for a costly error to earn England's makeshift team a deserved 2-1 victory against Germany in the Olympic Stadium in Berlin.

The Chelsea defender headed home an 84th-minute free-kick from Stewart Downing to make amends for his mix-up with goalkeeper Scott Carson which had gifted Patrick Helmes an equaliser early in the second half.

Matthew Upson had scored his first goal for England to give Fabio Capello's side a half-time lead and they looked assured and composed despite fielding only three first-choice players.
