England are to play Algeria on Friday, and their captain Antar Yahia says his team are going to try and force more goalkeeping errors out of England.
The new Adidas ball has been causing problems for all the teams in the competition, including Algeria, and Yahia believes it is worth trying to take advantage.
“We’d certainly not mind if Green’s blunder happened again,” he said. “And we will try to put pressure on England and their goalkeeper. We are determined to make the Algerian people proud of us.
“We have qualities which should shine through against England. We are going to pose problems for the English. We will be more ambitious than we were against Slovenia and that is a role that suits us better.
“It’is obviously going to be hard for us, but England were not quite on their game against the US and football is not an exact science. England have great individuals, big players, but as we saw on Saturday, their team is perhaps not yet in top gear.
“We are well-organised and we will have to see how we adapt tactically. For us what really matters is to learn the lessons from our defeat to Slovenia. We haven’t got much time to correct things.
“We have a tight defence and we have got to stay that way, but also pose the English problems ourselves. Against Slovenia we were solid, we were well organised, but unfortunately we did not get any points.
“That is really frustrating. We made big mistakes and we put ourselves in difficulty. We gave gifts to the opposition. I hope in the next match we don’t make mistakes like that which will prove as costly.”
England cannot afford any more errors, and the plan must be to score as many goals as possible to make sure that they finish top of the group. A second place could mean they will face in the first knock-out round. And nobody wants that!
