Stern John: T&T ready to shock England
Coventry striker Stern John believes Trinidad and Tobago can surprise England on Thursday in Nuremberg.
John, 29, put in a solid shift as the lone attacker as the World Cup newcomers surprised Sweden by taking a point with a 0-0 draw.
He said: 'We know the England game will be very tough.
'You are only as good as your last game but we ground out a result against Sweden and hopefully we can build on it.
'We won some fans in our opening match and that was important.
'People who have been watching all over the world will be talking about this and Trinidad and Tobago players for years to come.'
Gillingham defender Brent Sancho, who replaced the injured Marvin Andrews, is also quietly confident going into the England clash.
He said: 'No-one expected us to get a result against Sweden but we always believed in ourselves. Who knows what can happen now?
'Getting a draw against Sweden is the biggest moment in our footballing lives but hopefully it will get even better in this tournament.'
