Listless Game

This evening I had dinner at Barjana and watched the Slovenia-Algeria match. But I found it a listless game, and I was feeling lethargic. After observing them play, I certainly don’t believe they can secure a place in the last 16. I left after the first half because it was an unbearably dull game. Anyway, I just found out that Slovenia won1-0 to send them top of Group C and this was their first ever World Cup finals win. Shall I clap?

Britain's Sunday newspapers showed no sympathy for England goalkeeper Robert Green. The News of the World, Sunday Mirror and Independent all used the headline, "Hand of Clod" with the Sunday Mirror adding, "Tainted Glove" and the News of the World exclaiming, "Stars and Tripe". "Green Fingers," read the Sunday Times, while the Mail on Sunday simply lead with, "Calamity" (Webpage
