Not Looking Good For Algeria

England have a friendly match lined up against Egypt as part of their World Cup preparation. They've chosen Egypt because they are supposed to be on the same level and have a similar style to Algeria, who England will face in their World Cup Group matches.

However, having watched African minnows Malawi demolish Algeria 3-0 on Eurosport yesterday, I have to confess I have no idea how Algeria managed to qualify for the 2010 World Cup. They were truly shocking. The goalkeeper, Fawzi Chaouchi, had a nightmare and the defence were pretty much asleep.

If this truly represents the standard of Algeria's national team - and I hope it doesn't - then, in the immortal words of Anne Robinson, they will leave...with nothing.
