The deals that made all the difference in the Premier League

Gerrard's flying start ruined by Americans' rub of Green

England 1 United States 1: Questions surround Capello's selections as Milner lasts only half an hour and King is withdrawn at half-time

True horror of history is narrowly avoided

When Joe Gaetjens deflected the most famous goal ever scored by an American, Alf Ramsey, who was England's right back in Belo Horizonte, would always recall the look of horror on the face of Bert Williams as the leather ball slid through his fingers.

Rob Green: 'I don't often miss ball by that much'

England's manager Fabio Capello was unexpectedly upbeat after last night's disappointing draw, insisting: "We played a good match and created lots of chances. I saw [for] another time the spirit of the team, fighting every time to win the ball. I am not worried about the physical condition for the next match this week because in the second half we ran better than the USA." Of Green's error, Capello said: "Sometimes keepers make mistakes. The ball moves a lot. In the second half Robert Green played very well. But the mistake remains a mistake."

Lampard vows to step up his game for final crack at glory

Frank Lampard has vowed to make his last World Cup one to remember for England and believes the vast experience in the squad could be a crucial factor in their bid for success.

Casillas wrong to attack keepers, insists Banks

Gordon Banks has hit back at Iker Casillas' "disrespectful" claim that England's goalkeepers are not up to scratch. The Spain No 1 said earlier this week that David James, Rob Green and Joe Hart lacked the big-match pedigree to cut it at the World Cup.

Capello keeps his keepers guessing

James behind Hart and Green to start but decision will only be taken on match day

Cole focusing on England duty

Joe Cole hopes his experience can win him a place in the England team for the World Cup opener and insists his club future is "a story to be told another day".

Defoe insists England will be ready

Jermaine Defoe is confident England will be prepared for the World Cup opener with the United States despite having problems at high altitude in the warm-up game against Platinum Stars.

Barry returns to England training

Gareth Barry was a welcome presence on the Royal Bafokeng training pitches this morning as England went through their paces after finally arriving in South Africa on their World Cup mission yesterday.

Kicks (15)

This drama of folie à deux owes a small debt to My Summer of Love, being the story of two teenagers – Nicole (Kerrie Hayes) and Jasmine (Nichola Burley) – who bond over a shared obsession in a young Liverpool footballer (Jamie Doyle).

Diary: School's out for Eugenie

Charles Saatchi's Newspeak exhibition opened at the collector's London gallery yesterday, and among the works on show is Eugenie Scrase's "Trunkated", a found section of fencing topped with a fallen chunk of tree. Viewers of BBC2's School of Saatchi will recall Scrase (and her piece) as the winner of that TV reality contest. The works she created for broadcast also included a lamp-pull draped over a radiator, and a whistle hanging from a door handle. "Actually," she corrects me, "it was a handlebar for handicapped people getting out of the bath." And what has the 20-year-old, currently completing her second year at the Slade art school, been up to since the show was broadcast? Working with doorhandles, as it happens: "I've been tampering with and perverting their intended role," she says. "I'm also planning a project in Frankfurt to do with bollards." For now, however, Scrase plans to spend her summer waitressing at a caff in Brixton. The life of an artist.

Full list of England squad numbers

Fabio Capello has dropped a strong hint that David James will be England's goalkeeper for the start of the World Cup by handing him the number one shirt in South Africa.

Schwarzer speaks out about World Cup ball

Australia goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer believes the key to coping with the controversial balls to be used at the World Cup will be to remain calm after admitting to struggling with them during yesterday's 1-0 warm-up win over Denmark.

Sport on TV: Terry feels cruelty of betrayal as we pull the plug on Palmer

There's a World Cup around the corner so it must be time for a slurry of cringeworthy and ill-informed programmes about football. England's Worst Ever Football Team (BBC3, Wednesday) kicked off the silly season with a customary cast of has-beens and who-are-yas sharing their utterly unwanted views. Danielle Ward, Jason Lewis, Nico Tatrowicz; these people are comedians, apparently. Here's some more: Joe Wilkinson, Alex Riley, David James... Oh sorry, the last one isn't a comedian. But he is a national joke.

In this photo illustration a school student eats a hamburger as part of his lunch which was brought from a fast food shop near his school, on October 5, 2005 in London, England. The British government has announced plans to remove junk food from school lunches. From September 2006, food that is high in fat, sugar or salt will be banned from meals and removed from vending machines in schools across England. The move comes in response to a campaign by celebrity TV chef Jamie Oliver to improve school meals.
