Chelsea skipper Terry: England playing without passion

Chelsea captain John Terry admits England lacked passion for their 0-0 draw with Algeria.

To even make the last 16, England need to perform far better than they did against Algeria - universally acknowledged as a pitiful display, even inside the dressing room.

"I certainly felt there was a lack of passion," he said.

"On paper we are a much better team than Algeria but there was no tackling, no-one winning headers, no-one winning second balls.

"It was not acceptable. You have to show a bit of aggression and a bit of fight.

"No player had that fire in their belly. I can assure everyone it is going to be there against Slovenia."
