David Beckham rescued England from the brink yesterday as England flirted with disaster before scraping into next year's World Cup finals thanks to his injury-time equalizer in a 2-2 draw with Greece. Beckham wove his deadball magic to stun Group 9 rivals Germany, whose own campaign fizzled out with a 0-0 stalemate against Finland, which forces them into the play-offs. Joining England in the finals in Japan and South Korea next summer were Italy, who beat Hungary 1-0 in Parma with an Alessandro Del Piero freekick to wrap up Group Eight. Croatia, Portugal, Russia and Denmark also booked their passage.
