Ex-West Brom midfielder Koren: England reputations mean nothing

Slovenia captain Robert Koren says they don't care about England's reputations going into today's World Cup game.

Former West Brom midfielder Koren insists that will all count for nothing this afternoon.

The Slovenia skipper said: "The media keep saying to me 'It's England, Rooney and Lampard... ' but it's simple - we don't care.

"We don't care if it's Rooney or Messi. We'll prepare properly, like a team. Then let's see what happens.

"When we played Russia in the play-off, we didn't think 'Arshavin is coming' or 'Zhirkov is there'.

"Everyone expects England to go through and we're coming into this as underdogs.

"But if England drop a level against us they'll struggle."
