I agree. The British media is just hyper and is the drama queen equivalent of the media world

England will be lucky if they even advance from the group stage. England have players like Rooney, Gerrard, Lampard, Lennon, Terry yet they ALWAYS fail in tournaments, it really is a mystery. With players like that they should be challenging for gold in every world cup.

I think England have so much pressure on them from media and the English people that when going in to these types of matches instead of thinking "We have a great chance of winning" they think "We are not allowed to fail" "We need to win" etc etc, they go into the games with a negative mindset and without any confidence.

Even if England get's through the group stage they will still I think have to face Ghana or Germany and they will lose to both... But I would be surprised if England even beats Slovenia.

England= Great players, Bad team.

wow. England are doing everything they can to keep the Yanks in this thing. I though, for sure, that England would win that one. I am in shock right now.

England always fail when it matters. The US have a better team, England have better players but the US defenitley have the better team.

I predict that The US will beat Algeria with ease... While Slovenia will beat England with 2-0.

As usual, brutal sarcasm at its best. This is one reason I like reading English newspapers regularly LMAO

World Cup 2010: Another England Carry On as boos follow Algeria draw | Football | The Guardian

Today's other match in England's group, between USA and Slovenia, was a cracker of a 2-2 draw, with USA coming back from two goals down and scoring an equaliser through their coach's son, Michael Bradley.

This tournament is giving nepotism a good name.

Diego Maradona's son-in-law, Sergio AgŁero, had a hand in two of Argentina's goals against South Korea on Thursday.

Unfortunately Fabio Capello's son, Pierfilippo, is a lawyer by profession and, as an Italian national, unqualified to get England out of the hole in which they find themselves.
