Fabio Capello, the England coach, could not find an explanation to why the Three Lions were so bad against Algeria on Saturday evening. England could not break down the African side, and the goalless draw leaves them with just two points from their opening two games. Victory against Slovenia on Wednesday would see England through to the last 16, but the performance will have to be better than this to go through. Capello was clearly angered by the performance as he watched from the sidelines, and does not know why the confidence he sees in training is not being replicated in matches. "It is the pressure of the World Cup. These players are training very well at a fast speed. But these two games they were not the same," he said. "We have to be focused for the next game. We have a big chance to go through after the draw of the United States. "I hope on Wednesday to see the England team. This is not the England that I know. It is not the players in training. When I started as England manager I saw the same things when we played at Wembley. I hope for the next game that we forget this performance and forget to play with fear and without confidence. "It is incredible the mistakes of the players, when they do not control the ball, the easy passes we missed. Everything. This is incredible for the level of the England players. "It is the pressure. It is so big that the performance of the players is not as good as I know."
