Boos greet England’s 0-0 draw with Algeria.

It was built as the game that would see England raise its game after the below average performance they put on against the USA in their first match.  They even brought in Princes’ William and Harry for moral and royal support.  None of it worked.  For 93mins, they tried everything.  England’s everything was however, not good enough; not for their funs at least!  And, as soon as the final whistle went, the English funs, also known as the “Barmy Army”, made their feelings crystal clear by booing their team off the pitch.    When asked what was missing, England and Liverpool captain Stephen Gerrard answered in one word:  Goals!  He then went on to add that “we lacked courage”.  The frustration was written all over star striker Wyne Rooney’s face.  He is known for his hot temper and he didn’t disappoint. He took a swipe at the booing English funs as he walked off the pitch.

England coach Fabio Capello summed it all up when he said “we lost too many chances.  We gave away too many passes.  It was not the same team that I know; the one that I saw during qualifying”.  The pundits however believe England still has a chance to progress if they beat Slovenia in their next game.  Not according to an angry England fun.  “Fabio Capello wasn’t paid £5million to deliver mathematical possibilities.  He is paid to deliver victories”.  A more optimistic English fan however put a positive spin to the draw which seemed like a loss for England and said:  “We are English.  We always do it the hard way but eventually we always prevail over the enemy.  Dunkirk spirit!  Ask the Germans”.  It was veiled and light hearted reference to the allied victory over Nazi Germany during the 2nd World War.
