England to analyse Algeria disappointment

20 June 2010 09:51
England players and management were due to meet on Sunday night to dissect what went wrong in Friday night's goalless draw with Algeria. It follows two days of criticism from supporters and media, although the Three Lions know progress to the second round of the World Cup is still in their own hands: if they defeat Slovenia on Wednesday afternoon then they will go through. "Everyone needs to get off their chest exactly how they're feeling. If it upsets him [coach Fabio Capello], or it upsets any player, then so be it," said John Terry, the former captain, on Sunday. "I've read things about people playing with fear. At any level there's a certain amount of nerves, but I can honestly say that all that's gone once we cross the white line. We can't use that as an excuse - we just haven't done it. "We shouldn't be looking at excuses or criticising the manager. We're supporting him and know we've got his support as well, and that's the main thing."
