Kick-Off: 15:30 Local (07:30 BST) Assistant referees: Héctor Vergara (Canada) Evzen Amler (Czech Republic) Fourth official: Toru Kamikawa (Japan) Man of the Match: Jay-Jay Okocha (Nigeria) England laboured to an uninspiring goalless draw against Nigeria in Osaka - yet it proved enough to put Sven-Goran Eriksson's men into the last 16. The real highlight of the afternoon for England fans was not their team's performance but the fact that Sweden had knocked out fierce rivals Argentina in the other group game.
