England beat Sweden 1-0 in their international friendly at Wembley Stadium on Tuesday.

Gareth Barry's deflected header secured their second win in four days and the country's landmark 2,000th goal.

It's the first time England have beaten Sweden in 43 years - the last win coming in 1968! John Terry captained after being left out of the 1-0 win against Spain on Saturday.

Wembley's turnout of 48,876 was the lowest for England at the new stadium.

After creating a few chances, Fabio Capello's side took the lead mid-way through the first half.

Winger Stewart Downing swept in a dangerous ball and Gareth Barry's glancing header took a lucky deflection off defender Daniel Majstorovic to score.

Chelsea's Daniel Sturridge made his full international debut in the second half.

England held on to secure the victory and are now unbeaten in their last nine matches.
