Yebda hails England strength
Algeria midfielder Hassan Yebda does not see many weaknesses in England's side ahead of their Group C clash in Cape Town on Friday.
The 26-year-old, who spent this season on loan at Portsmouth from Benfica, has played against plenty of Fabio Capello's team in the Barclays Premier League.
But he insists the north Africans will not be overawed as they push for a victory to re-ignite their hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages.
"I watched the England game against the United States and I thought it was a good game," he said.
"They are two good teams and it will be very difficult.
"I don't see a lot of weaknesses in the England side, they have so many good players.
"But we will try to give our best. We want to win our final two games to qualify."
With England having just one point and Algeria none fellow midfielder Karim Matmour believes neither side can allow Friday's encounter to finish in a draw.
"There needs to be a winner of this match, otherwise it will be very difficult for both us and them [to qualify]," he said.
He believes England's collection of superior talent can sometimes work against them.
"There are great individuals in all positions but this quality can also be a negative because it is often seen with large teams that individuals have difficulty in working together and are not always a great team," he added.
