Pompey at the world cup - James and Belhadj

There was good news for one Pompey player this afternoon, although heartbreak for another - the final, of the Pompey trio in world cup action today will know his fate before the night is out...

James cool in England win

Once again, despite having little to do really David James continued to show that he is a cool, calm and relaxed character as he retained his position as England no. 1 in the win against Slovenia.

The 1-0 win for England, with former Pompey striker Jermain Defoe - the little git - scoring the winner, put us into the 2nd round.

Although this came as runners-up and means that we will now face the winners of group D, which 'could' be Kevin-Prince Boateng's Ghana, although that means they MUST beat Germany, or at least draw with them and Serbia lose?

The way I see it BRING 'EM ON whoever it is, wherever it is and whenever it is!

Going back to Jamo quickly, whilst he did not have a lot to do I think his concentration levels were fantastic - he kept himself focused at ALL times and claimed some very difficult balls pretty easily, take note Mr Green...

Vital Pompey's very own paultsmouth will, as always, being doing the match report so keep an eye out for this over on Vital England - here.

Algeria denied at the death

It was joy for James but despair for Nadir Belhadj.

He will not play any further part at the world cup after America beat Algeria 1-0 with an injury-time winner, not only to secure the win but secure the top spot in group A and see Algeria finish bottom.

Even had Algeria drawn 0-0, in what looked a pretty eventful game, they would have gone out - then again so would America with England winning the group and Slovenia going through in defeat.

Sadly this is probably the last time that Billy will pull on an Algerian shirt as a Pompey player as a move to Lazio, or someone else, will now be 'wrapped up' in the coming days, or weeks I would think?

So, the next time we see him on the international stage, or domestic stage, it will be as another of those 'former Pompey players'...

Remember to follow England, and the world cup in general, with us on Vital England - here.
