  Rooney double earns England win
Updated 17 June 2004, 21.36
Wayne Rooney scored twice for England
Two goals from Wayne Rooney and one from Steven Gerrard gave England a vital 3-0 win at Euro 2004.

Rooney scored once in each half against Switzerland and Gerrard with eight minutes left to earn England all three points in the Group B clash.

The win means just avoiding defeat against Croatia in the final game on Monday should be enough to qualify.

England didn't play well in the first half, but when Swiss player Bernt Haas was sent off they got better.

Switzerland probably started the game better, and created a few good chances as England gave away free kicks.

But England improved after the break, especially when their opponents were reduced to 10 men with 30 minutes left.

In the second game in the group France fought back from being 2-1 down to earn a 2-2 draw with Croatia.

That means if England don't lose to Croatia in their final Group B match on Monday they will qualify for the second round.
