Group C - final standing

Slovenia 0 - 1 England USA 1 - 0 Algeria Well done USA. They top the group ahead of one of the pre-tournament England and what a match it was. At 90mins, the US looks like they are heading home and suddenly Donovan popped up with the winner and sent them through. I also keep an eye on the England match. From the look of it, England look like a team in disarray. Rooney, despite his hot form in the recently concluded season, looked like a person who has lost his confidence. If England is to go any further, Capello got to drop Rooney and start with Crouch and Defoe. Many might not agree but what is the point of having your biggest star in the team when he is not performing. So make a guess the next round. Germany v England and USA v Ghana. What a match that would be, Germans v English.

England are showing bad play in their first matches of this World Cup. The Germans weren't also so good but they've controlled the game in the 3 matches until now. So here the win will be for Germany. USA - Ghana - that will be very interesting match. I hope that the both teams wouldn't defense too much and the game will be exciting. I think USA will win.

USA topping the group really makes the next round really interesting. Now that means that England and Germany go head to head in the round of 16 which neither would have wanted. USA on the other hand face upto Ghana and if they get past them they face either Uruguay or South Korea. Cheers! Ram
