WEMBLEY, ENGLAND (AP) - John Terry scored the winning goal in the 85th minute Wednesday to lead England to a 2-1 win over Ukraine and stretch the team’s winning streak to five games in World Cup qualifying.

The England captain scored from close range after Steven Gerrard had touched on David Beckham’s free kick as England stayed five points clear at the top of Group 6.

Peter Crouch volleyed England into the lead in the 29th at Wembley, but substitute Andriy Shevchenko leveled in the 74th with a half-volley after the home side failed to clear a free kick.

England has 15 points from five games and Ukraine has seven from four. Croatia has 10 from five after winning at Andorra 2-0.
