England 1 Slovenia 0

Group C Nelson Mandela Bay/Port Elizabeth Wednesday June 23 16.00 SA Time - England 1 Slovenia 0 (Defoe, 22’)

England started to grow after 13’ when Frank Lampard blasted his free kick straight at Handanovic. On 22’, 1-0 for England. Defoe received a marvellous cross from the right (Milner). On 30’, Defoe had another chance, the ball running to Rooney, who passed to Gerard, finally Handanovic managed to hold the ball.

Rooney hit the post on 58’ and the score remained the same. It would have been enough for Slovenia, if Donovan had not scored for the USA on 91’. A cruel piece of luck.

Slovenia: Handanovic, Breko, Suler, Cesar, Koren, Ljubljankic (Dedic), Birsa, Novakovic, Jokic, Kirm (Matavz), Radosavljevic
