England, USA scrap through
England and the United States made it to the second round with their first wins in their Group C FIFA 2010 World Cup.
England scored their only goal in the first half and this was the team's second goal of the tournament in its match against Slovenia where England had to win to progress.
The USA left it late in injury time before also winning 1-nil in a match against Algeria.
The USA won the group on number of goals scored and will now meet Ghana from group D whilst England will now meet arch-rivals Germany.
Algeria finished the tournament without scoring a single goal whilst Slovenia could consider themselves unlucky going out on four points but being in the competition until the USA scored its goal.
Algeria could take heart from the fact they only conceded two goals and both in the later stages of their matches.
I will take a look at the first half score lines so far in this post and then second half in the next post:
|0 - 0||17|
|0 - 1||7|
|0 - 2||1|
|1 - 0||6|
|1 - 1||6|
|2 - 0||2|
|2 - 1||1|
So so far nearly half the matches have gone into the break goalless.
