England 3-0 Denmark
FIFA World Cup Finals Second Round
15 June 2002

West Ham United winger Trevor Sinclair was involved on this day eleven years ago as England secured their place in the quarter finals of the 2002 World Cup in Japan and South Korea.

The Three Lions made their way through the group stage with draws against Sweden and Nigeria, along with a famous win over Argentina, to earn a last-16 match against Denmark.

Sinclair, then 29, earned a starting spot on the left hand side of midfield for his eighth England cap, and Sven-Goran Eriksson's men were soon celebrating as Rio Ferdinand gave them a fifth minute lead.

Michael Owen doubled the advantage with 22 minutes played and Emile Heskey made the game safe before half time.

England maintained their 3-0 advantage to the end of the contest, but their adventure was to end in the next round as Brazil came from behind to defeat them 2-1.
