Slovenia 0-1 England


The Line-Ups:


England: 1-David James; 2-Glen Johnson, 15-Matthew Upson, 6-John Terry, 3-Ashley Cole; 16-James Milner, 4-Steven Gerrard, 8-Frank Lampard, 14-Gareth Barry; 19-Jermain Defoe, 10-Wayne Rooney.

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; 9-Zlatan Ljubijankic, 11-Milivoje Novakovic.


And that’s in!!!! Jermaine Defoe after a fantastic Milner cross swinging in gets the ball on the net. Tottenham’s striker high in the rankings after this goal and will England defend the result or will they try to increase the result?

Seems like England is going forward and developing an attacking 4-3-3 formation when on the move, maintaining 4-4-2 in terms of defensive approach because they are aware of the pace of the Slovenian full backs that come forward often creating spaces.

In the last 15 minutes of the first half England kept pressuring high and were almost getting the second from inside the box when Defoe strikes and Handanovic gets it and Gerrard on the rebound was about to score before the Slovenian goalkeeper made his save of the tournament.

Offside…Rooney is offside way before Defoe puts the ball in the back of the net on the 49th minute.

We are going into the 67th minute and God Save the Queen. Terry first blocking and then Johnson in the biggest threat of the all match posed by any team and that was Slovenia on the attacking move.

Surprise substitution taking off Rooney and bringing on Joe Cole. We have been talking about this for a while and finally Capello makes it happen just after swapping Heskey for Defoe as we orchestrated in our report prior to the start of the World Cup.


MAN OF THE MATCH: Defoe
