MOST COMMENTED

[SLOVENIA-ALGERIA REPORT CARD] After England's Robert Green, it was Algeria's Faouzi Chaouchi's turn to give up a howler. At least Green, got his body in front of Clint Dempsey's shot. Chaouchi failed to get his hands on Robert Koren's shot to the far post, allowing Slovenia to take first place in Group C with a 1-0 win ob Sunday. Soccer America's Paul Kennedy grades the two teams ...

The irony, of course, was that Chaouchi was originally supposed to be suspended for the game for head-butting a referee at the African Cup of Nations, but his suspension and that of teammate Nadir Belhadji were limited by FIFA on the eve of the World Cup.
