Last weekend’s 1-1 draw with the USA didn’t exactly represent the best of starts for England in the 2010 World Cup. All the anticipation and excitement for the tournament was lost when ‘keeper Rob Green somehow let in Clint Dempsey’s tame shot. The more and more it was replayed on TV the harder it got to watch, but will he get his chance to redeem himself against Algeria? Although Fabio Capello’s men weren’t dreadful, they were far from brilliant and will have to step up their performance in their second Group C encounter. But what did Westwood think of the match?
The big dawg himself, Radio 1Xtra DJ Tim Westwood has decided to turn his hand to football journalism for the 2010 World Cup and is producing a weekly column exclusively for the News of the World. Signed up for his straight-talking, Westwood certainly delivers with both barrels in his first blog where Green and the rest of the England team fail to avoid the criticism handed out by the big dawg. There’s no sign of Westwood easing himself in gently, he’s certainly not afraid to let us know what he thinks!
He airs his views after watching the first few games of what has admittedly been a slow start to the 2010 Word Cup in South Africa. Westwood’s take on England’s lacklustre performance was that the overpaid players were lacking the emotion needed to take them far in the tournament, while he doesn’t hold back when it comes to Rob Green. The big dawg’s heart is ruling his head when it comes to his thoughts on England’s chances, which maybe could be improved by taking a leaf out of Tiger Woods’ book…
