TSS, flying the flag for England

After America held us to a lucky draw, courtesy of one of the all-time greatest goalkeeping blunders from Rob Green, England can’t afford any more slip-ups as they go head-to-head with Algeria tomorrow night.

Whether Rob Green will be selected again remains an area of uncertainty, but personally, I’d give him another go as he’ll be desperate to make up for his costly error.

You can all rest assured the error is behind him. The latest news from England’s training camp is that Rob Green trained for four hours today, in which time he had 4,000 shots fired at him and didn’t concede once. Him and Emile Heskey will now re-join the rest of the England squad tomorrow morning.

Like every game at a World Cup, tomorrow is a “must win,” but I’m confident the boys will come good and do us proud. England have a habit of starting slowly, and our greatest achievements have come after a poor first game in major competitions so this is nothing to be worried about. The Algerian’s shouldn’t be a match for Capello’s England, and I’m happy to stick my neck out and predict a white-wash.

Elsewhere in the World Cup today, Greece beat the Nigerian’s 2-1, and Argentina destroyed South Korea with the match finishing 4-1.
