Eriksson tips England win
Nelspruit - Former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson believes England can beat Germany in their World Cup showdown in Bloemfontein on Sunday.
The 62-year-old Swede, who is in charge of the Ivory Coast at the World Cup finals, said he will find a television in Nelspruit and watch his former team take on their World Cup nemesis.
"I saw England's match against Algeria and I thought England played well," the Swede said of the 0-0 draw which was roundly slammed by the critics.
"I think they can beat Germany, it will be a huge game. I am going to look at that on TV."
Eriksson was in charge of two England World Cup campaigns in 2002 and 2006, but never succeeded in taking the side beyond the last eight, losing to eventual winners Brazil in 2002 and then to Portugal on penalties four years later.
