Well that was the poorest display of talent and skill by any of the teams so far in the world cup. England and the US should have nothing to fear but that said they cannot take anything for granted as neither team covered themselves in too much glory last night. Slovenia top the group though with 3 points.
PEEEEEEP PEEEEP PEEP – Game over.
92:00 – Decent chance for Algeria as nervy keeping from Slovenia from a set piece creates confusion but they clear. New substitute Komac gets what looks like a green card (maybe it’s the sun) for a cynical foul.
89:00 – Robert Koren has a tongue piercing? or was that a HUGE gob of spit. Sometimes 50′ HD is not great.
88:00 – Radosavaljevic off and he gets a kiss from his coach for his efforts. That’s nice. Komac comes on.
86:00 – No Harkes, Zidane does not want to be on the field. That is why he retired!
84:00 – Birsa off, Pecnik on.
79:00 – GOOOOOOOOOAL KOREN. That was kind of out of nowhere as he gathers the ball and sends a softish shot into the corner and Chaouchi dives comically and it bounces off him into the back of the net. To be fair that was an odd bounce and he had to dive for it but the keeper should have done a lot better. Slovenia 1 – Algeria 0
77:00 – That was exciting. Algeria break through as Handanovic gathers a back pass and passes to Suler who watches it with the casual interest of a house cat and Ziani pounces but his touch is poor and Handanovic rushes and grabs it at the midfielders feet. Close one that and highly entertaining.
76:00 - What can Slovenia do with the extra man advantage? For now it looks like they are content with letting Algeria press on.
73:00 – Ghezzal sent off! He purposefully hand balls the ball in an effort to control it and has to get a yellow for that and it’s his second so he earns the red. Both of his cards were stupid.
71:00 – Ghezzal is making some good runs and getting into some dangerous positions. Do all the Algerians have the same barber?
