WC 2010 Day 8 : Video Highlights

England 0 Algeria 0
England continued their dismally disappointing World Cup campaign with another draw in Group C. After the lacklustre 1-1 opening draw against the United States - this time things were supposed to be different.

Algeria had been presented as the worst of an average three opponents in this opening phase of South Africa 2010.
Yet two thirds into the group stage, England will head into Wednesday's showdown against Slovenia frantically chasing a win at a time when we had be merely validating their claims as contenders to lift the trophy on July 11.

The result was greeted by understandable jeers from the England fans within Cape Town's Green Point Stadium after being subjected to another dire performance - but a frustrated Wayne Rooney did not take kindly to the reception.

As TV cameras circled him on the pitch, the No 10 raged sarcastically: 'It's nice to see your own fans booing you. We've got loyal supporters.'

It's a valuable point for Algeria who played some good footbal at the beginning of this toothless and disappointing match. Not sure if there is anything worthy to call as highlights in this match

USA 2 Slovenia 2
USA looked to be in major trouble at half-time as Valter Birsa and Zlatan Ljubijankic had put Slovenia in a commanding position, but Landon Donovan fired home shortly after the break before Michael Bradley grabbed an 82nd-minute equaliser. It should have been a stunning comeback win for USA but Maurice Edu's 85th-minute strike was controversially ruled out.

Germany 0 Serbia 1
Germany will rue the day they met up with Alberto Undiando, while Serbia will be sending fruity baskets.For the second straight game involving Germany there was a contentious sending off – only this time, the game was still in the balance and this time, Germany didn’t benefit. Miroslav Klose was sent off in the 37th for two fouls which were maybe a combined yellow, one an accident, the other a very common “striker’s foul” in going for the ball. Milan Jovanovic's 38th-minute strike and a second-half penalty save from keeper Vladimir Stojkovic were enough to see off the 10-man German.
