Well done Algeria for working hard and holding England to a goal-less draw. England lacked any kind of drive or commitment. Rooney once again showed how over rated he is. He stood there waiting for the ball to come to him. He made no effort at all. I feel sorry for the England supporters who went all the way to S. Africa to support them. They have sadly been let down. Nothing to do with me being Scottish. I wanted England to do well, but by the end I felt Algeria deserved to win.
