Joe Cole Gives England Victory Over Andorra, 2-0

Joe Cole spared England from embarrassment as Fabio Capello's side began their World Cup qualifying campaign with a stuttering victory over Andorra. In Capello's first competitive match in charge, England dominated but were booed off at half-time after failing to break down Andorra's packed defense. Cole was brought on at the break and made an instant impact, volleying home Frank Lampard's free-kick in the 49th minute. Six minutes later, Cole prodded home his second goal from a pass from Wayne Rooney.

1-0 Joe Cole 49"
