Meanwhile, ex-Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher had some harsh words for the England manager Fabio Cappello following the team's woeful World Cup performance against Algeria on Friday. "Before tonight everyone really respected him, but he's kind of turned into some kind of silly wizard," the rocker said on ITV's 'World Cup Live' chat show following the 0-0 draw.
Gallagher isn't optimistic about England's chances in their next game on Wednesday either, where they will have to defeat Slovenia in order to progress to the knock-out stages of the tournament. "If they couldn't beat Algeria tonight I cant see them beating Slovenia," he said. "Slovenia are going to need to draw that game to go through, so they've got something to play for, it's all over."
The Manchester City fan also revealed that England's traditional World Cup struggles haven't always been totally unwelcome in the Oasis camp. Recalling the release of 2002 single 'Stop Crying Your Heart Out', Gallagher explained: "We knew when it was picked as a single it would be released at the time of the World Cup. We thought, 'We are bound to get knocked out to this.' 'Kerching,' I said."
Alas, it seems unlikely the feuding Oasis boys will be able to get it together to rush-release something equally maudlin in time for Wednesday afternoon.
