Defending champions England survived a final leg shoot-out with Spain to book their place in the second round of the World Cup of Darts. Scotland survive scare Thursdays opening night report from Frankfurt After Thursdays opening night victories for Netherlands and Scotland, it was the turn of Phil Taylor and Adrian Lewis to take centre stage and with 18 world titles between them they were expected to make short work of their Spanish opponents.However, England fell behind early on when Antonio Alcinas, who played in Spains 2010 victory over England, pinned an early double to break the favourites throw at the first time of asking. Inspired by Taylor, England came back to break straight back and when Taylor nailed 128 they looked well set for victory but Spain were not to be outdone and matched their more illustrious opponents dart-for-dart to take the match to a deciding leg. Antonio Alcinas and Christo Reyes reflect on nearly causing a huge upset And it was to be Lewis who clinched victory but with three darts for double top he missed with the first two before sinking with his final chance.They put us under pressure from the start and they were brilliant, said Taylor. We were hitting doubles with our last darts and it was giving us a heart attack! Taylor and Lewis celebrate their deciding leg victory Theyve beaten us before and I knew they were confident of beating us again. I think it was a cracking game and its livened the tournament up a little bit - if Adrian had missed at the end there I think wed have gone out.Its a different format now with the Singles and Doubles games, and its a leveller. Sometimes Ive done well in the Singles and Adrians had a bad game or Adrians played well and Ive had a bad game, so well see what happens tomorrow.Up next for England will be China who beat Czech Republic 5-3 with an impressive display of finishing clinching a place in the second round for the first time in their history.
