Crouch goal seals England win

England team celebrate Peter Crouch's goal

Peter Crouch led England to a 1-0 victory over Austria in Friday's friendly after he headed in the only goal of the match.

But there was bad news for England fans because Michael Owen was injured and will miss England's Euro 2008 qualifier against Croatia on Wednesday.

The Newcastle striker went off with a thigh strain in the first half of the game and could be out for a month.

The goal was Crouch's 13th in 23 international appearances.

It was set up by a corner kick from David Beckham.
