England are through to the 2010 World Cup finals as two goals apiece from Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard enabled them to overpower Croatia 5-1 at Wembley.
Lampard and Gerrard took full revenge after being two of only three survivors from the England side beaten by Croatia in a Euro 2008 qualifier at the same stadium two years ago.
Wayne Rooney added the fifth goal after Arsenal striker Eduardo had netted a consolation effort for the visitors.
England had needed only a draw to qualify after Ukraine's goalless draw away to Belarus.
