Wayne Rooney, English striker
Before playing Algeria: "Against Algeria we can not be at our best and win the game."
When asked what he knew about his opponents: "Not much. Belhadj from Portsmouth, but I don't really know much more about them. I'm sure the manager will point out their strengths and weaknesses to us."
When booed off the field after a 0-0 draw: "Nice to see your home fans booing you. That’s loyal supporters."
Roy Hodgson, Fulham manager and commentator
When asked what effect the Slovenia-USA draw would have on England: "I don't think it matters, to be honest, since England are clearly the best team in the group."
Chris Waddle, former England winger
When asked whether a problem exists in the English locker room: "In qualifying we beat Croatia [ranked 10th in the world] twice and Ukraine [23rd] once. They are both far better than the USA [14th] and Algeria[30th], so there must be something wrong."
