The probleme in this match is not because England didn't play well is because they couldn't play with this Algerian tactics full domination of the midfield closing all spaces no Gerard, no Lampard,no roony could do anything, England was wery lucky to Draw it could be worse as Algeria didn't have good striker.

"We just never hit our level today and it’s not good enough. I don’t know why that was, but we weren’t aggressive enough, we didn’t win the ball back early enough and there was no cutting edge in the final third," Steven Gerrard, England captain.
