Algeria 0-1 Slovenia

Algeria 0-1 Slovenia ( Koren )

Algeria: 16-Faouzi Chaouchi; 2-Majid Bougherra, 5-Rafik Halliche, 4-Antar Yahia, 3-Nadir Belhadj; 13-Karim Matmour, 19-Hassan Yebda, 8-Medhi Lacen, 15-Karim Ziani; 21-Fouad Kadir, 11-Rafik Djebbour.

Slovenia: 1-Samir Handanovic; 2-Miso Brecko, 4-Marko Suler, 5-Bostjan Cesar, 13-Bojan Jokic; 10-Valter Birsa, 8-Robert Koren, 18-Aleksandar Radosavljevic, 17-Andraz Kirm; 14-Zlatko Dedic, 11-Milivoje Novakovic.

We had to wait until the 42th minute to see a dangerous situation in a well even match. It was a thunderous shot by Birsa just to see Chaouchi making a fantastic save.

79 minutes and Slovenia Scores!!! Robert Koren strikes a low drive and Chaouchi trying to catch it performs an awful mistake…Between Robert Green & Chaouchi we do not know which one was the worse so we will let you decide about that.

And the most entertaining thing about this Group C’s match was the crowd always trying to lift the players to perform, but it was not to happen this time.

Notable presence of Zinedine Zidane who is a Algerian descent and probable he must have thought that even at his age he would have performed way better than the players involved in the match. Do not take me wrong but surely they hope to improve because it has been the worst match ever seen at the World Cup. Ireland must upset…

Slovenia tops the group C with 3 points just ahead of USA & England with 1 point, Algeria will be last.
