Robert Koren (pictured) scored a 79th minute goal when Algeria goalkeeper Faouzi Chaouchi misjudged the shot and bounced the ball into his own net giving Slovenia a 1-0 win at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane. The second match of Group C was not one of the more interesting matches to ever occur but the final result does send Slovenia atop the group and ahead of both USA and England. Algeria also had a man foolishly sent off as Abdelkader Ghezzal picked up two yellow cards in his thirteen minutes as a substitute and now will not be available against England next week.
