Gerrard demands more

England midfielder Steven Gerrard concedes that there is room for improvement after Sven-Goran Eriksson's side reached the last 16 of the World Cup with a hard-fought 2-0 victory against Trinidad & Tobago on Thursday. England struggled for long periods against the Group B minnows before goals in the last seven minutes by Peter Crouch and Gerrard made it two wins out of two for Eriksson's side. "I was delighted to score my first World Cup goal, but I was more pleased for the team," said the Liverpool star after the victory. "The result may have been a good one, but we need to play more as a team. "At some points, we didn't move the ball around as well as we should have. "Although we can improve, it's important to remember that we have kept two clean sheets and we have six points on the board."
