England fail to impress
Alan Shearer (right): Blasts in his penalty
Luxembourg 0-3 England
Goals from Michael Owen, Alan Shearer and Gareth Southgate were enough to keep England's hopes of qualifying for Euro 2000 alive after the let-down of Saturday's goal-less draw against Bulgaria.
England are only third in their qualifying group after three games after Sweden got the better of Bulgaria in a tight game.
Hoddle's side had a remarkable let-off after only six minutes when Luxembourg's Dany Theis, a 30-year-old civil servant, missed a penalty.
Shearer shoots into history
The second goal came in the 40th minute after England were awarded a penalty for a handball by Theis.
Shearer stepped up to the spot and blasted his shot into the back of the net leaving Koch clutching his face in his hands.
England failed to capitalise on their lead for most of the second half. It was only in the 90th minute that they regained a little lost pride with Southgate claiming his first international goal.
For most of the game Beckham, making his return to international duties, appeared keen to make amends for his World Cup sending-off.
