Even if England do qualify, they won't win the World Cup

Friday, June 18, 2010

England 0-0 Algeria. They couldn't beat USA, they couldn't beat Algeria, will they be able to beat Slovenia. Based on tonight's performance, I doubt it.

England have very disappointing so far is this years World Cup. The first four minutes against USA were pretty good, but after that they looked lazy and just about deserved a draw. Tonight was no better. Algeria actually impressed me, which says a lot about the England performance.

Too many of their star players just aren't performing. Frank Lampard was terrible tonight, as was Gerrard, Lennon, Johnson and most surprisingly, Rooney. So much was expecting from Rooney at this competition, but to say he hasn't been at his best is an understatement. The choice not to bring the likes of Walcott and Bent, players who can come on and make a difference, is looking to be a crucial mistake.

I still think England will qualify. They should beat Slovenia. In saying that, they should have beaten USA and Algeria.
