WORLD CUP England vs Algeria

An inefficient England was deadlocked in a 0-0 draw with Algeria after 75 minutes of their World Cup Group C match. England looked far from its best even as the team pressed forward. England’s passing was errant, with midfielder Steven Gerrard particularly wasteful.

Algeria looked happy to sit back and look for opportunities to counterattack, but Rafik Halliche had to be alert to head clear a cross by Aaron Lennon intended for Wayne Rooney. Halliche also blocked a shot by Emile Heskey off a rare England break.

Frank Lampard had the best chance of the match in the first half, but his left-footed shot from 12 meters was well saved by Algeria goalkeeper M’bohi Rais Ouhed.
