How do you figure that out?
I guess that USA are happier at gaining one point than England are at dropping two points.

IIRC, he said that "we let in a poor goal and we didn't go on to get a winning goal”; pretty much the way it was, methinks.
Thanks. (Phew!)

That doesn't excuse the fact that he was widely considered a donkey four years ago, and still is today. He has a poor reputation as a striker, and I still can't understand why Crouch didn't start, or why he chose Green over David James, who would NEVER have fumbled the ball like that, it was inexcusable. Capello made some very poor choices for this game.

Re: 2010 World Cup actual match discussion here (all matches)

What Green did last night was inexcusable. He knelt down casually to take the ball and it rolled out of his hands! I know this stuff can happen but only because you loose concentration for a second. But at a World Cup? Seriously dodgy.

Those two points dropped could make all the difference at the end of the round if England come second in group - thereby facing group D winners Germany. Exciting sure but daunting also.

By who? By Pub football specialists? Clearly not by Capello.

Maybe because England play better with Heskey than with Crouch?
His role is not to score goals but to defend from the front, keep the ball and help with link up play.

This is tongue in cheek? surely? Are you talking about the David James in the England camp?

Really?

Germans are over confident, we are underrated.

The algerian goalkeeper just had a "Green house" effect... he missed a quite simple ball.

An d that is exactly the problem ... he "created the only English goal". Well, generous at best, he held the ball up for Gerrard but Stevie G defn created it !

The issue is that he didn't create anything else , other than miss a sitter. He is not there as a play maker - he is meant to be there to score goals ....

Its going to be an interesting game as everyone knows that Germany always bring their game on big occasions, but with Ballack out and die Mannschaft fielding their youngest team for decades together with the 'unknown' factor of Australia - ie we still have only ever won one game at a WC that being Japan 4 years ago, Kewell will he or wont he or more precisely has he still got it after sitting out the last 5+ months through injury, can Kennedy rise to the occasion, will Bresciano actually do anything (perhaps now that he's without club he will try harder to impress)...... all these questions, all these unknowns..... but my gut feeling is we could get thrashed. I hope I'm wrong. Go the Socceroos!!!!

On the bright side, it looks like England will have no problem winning this Friday against Algeria.

Two goal keeping howlers in 6 games so far.... perhaps that ball really is 'too round'. When will Adidas stop friggin with the ball (read marketing) and just get on with it.

Of course he isn't. You think Capello is really that stupid? You don't think he hasn't realised by now that scoring goals isn't Heskey's biggest talent?

Of course if Heskey scores nobody will complain but he isn't playing in that position because he can score goals.

World Cup 2010: South Africa ponders vuvuzela ban


The vuvuzela has already made a big impact at the World Cup

South Africa's World Cup organising chief Danny Jordaan may ban vuvuzelas from inside stadiums after complaints from broadcasters and supporters.

The constant sound of the high-pitched horn-like instrument has so far drowned out much of the atmosphere-generating singing usually associated with games.
And Jordaan, when asked if he would get rid of them, told BBC Sport: "If there are grounds to do so, yes.
"We did say that if any land on the pitch in anger we will take action."
France captain Patrice Evra has already blamed the noise generated by the vuvuzelas, which has been likened to the drone of thousands of bees, for his side's poor showing in their opening group game against Uruguay, which finished goalless.

He said: "We can't sleep at night because of the vuvuzelas. People start playing them from 6am.
"We can't hear one another out on the pitch because of them."
Jordaan conceded that while the noise was irritating for some people, they were doing all they could to minimise the impact.
"We've tried to get some order," he continued. "We have asked for no vuvuzelas during national anthems or stadium announcements. It's difficult but we're trying to manage the best we can.

"We've had some broadcasters and individuals [complaining] and it's something we are evaluating on an on-going basis."
Jordaan admitted he was not a huge fan of them himself. "I would prefer singing," he said.
"It's always been a great generator of a wonderful atmosphere in stadiums and I would try to encourage them to sing.
"In the days of the struggle (against apartheid) we were singing, all through our history it's our ability to sing that inspired and drove the emotions."
