Robert Koren have scored a late goal Sunday to make Slovenia a 1- win above 10-man Algeria in the teams' event opener, putting the World Cup's smallest land - population two million, about the size of Houston - in front of the Us and also England within Group C. The Slovenian captain struck a long-range shot which Algeria goalkeeper Fawzi Chaouchi misjudged and allowed to bounce in the net from his left arm inside the 79th minute. "I had been simply blessed to see this go in like this," Koren explained. Algerian trainer Rabah Saadane explained the new World Cup soccer ball was obviously a challenge for goalkeepers. "All people noticed what happened with the soccer ball, and also what happened recently with England's goalkeeper," Saadane explained. "You ought to conform to the flight of the soccer ball." Algeria substitute Abdelkader Ghezzal was ejected 7 mins before, picking up a second yellow card for handling the ball inside Slovenian penalty area. It was the very first World Cup success for Slovenia. The Balkan nation lost all 3 of their group matches in the 2002 competition. "That has been a mental victory," explained Slovenian trainer Matjaz Kek. "We desired to succeed so much, so it's great for our self-confidence to obtain that win." Each side realized they were heading into a match in which a loss can be costly, with England and the usa - both higher ranked - left on the schedule. The Group C favorites tied 1-1 Saturday after a blunder by England goalkeeper Robert Green allowed Clint Dempsey's shot to trickle in to the net. Algeria 2 times came near to scoring inside the 1st half, when Nadir Belhadj's 25-yard free kick forced Slovenia goalkeeper Samir Handanovic to stretch and push the ball over the crossbar, and when defender Rafik Halliche headed the ball just wide. Algeria coach Rabah Saadane said Chaouchi apologized to the team for failing to track Koren's shot. But the coach refused to criticize the goalkeeper. "We must recover and prepare for an even more complicated match vs England, that is the greatest of the group," Saadane explained. "It's likely to be really hard at this point. We'd an excellent chance today and we missed it." Players appeared nervous inside the 1st half, regularly dropping possession with incorrect passes and crosses. Slovenia's only scoring opportunity before the break was Valter Birsa's long-range attempt inside the 43rd minute, tipped over the bar with a amazing right-hand save by Chaouchi. The match could have taken a different turn two minutes before Koren's winner when Algeria's Karim Ziani caught defender Marko Suler off-guard and sent towards the Slovenian target, but was stop by Handanovic. There were several commotion inside the stands during the break when ex - France fantastic Zinedine Zidane, who's of Algerian descent, has been forced to ascend to a higher area to get away from autograph-seeking followers have been pushed back briskly by security. Algeria defeat North African competitor Egypt in a tense playoff to qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 1986. Slovenia reached its 2nd World Cup with an upset playoff wining over Russia. Slovenia faces the U.S. next, while Algeria moves to Cape Town to take on England. The game at the newly developed Peter Mokaba Stadium has been the very first World Cup match played on a surface partly consisting of artificial grass. Comparable turf has been used on several main stadiums in European countries. "I do certainly not accept this turf," Kek stated. "It is absolutely no excuse, it is the exact same for Algeria also. But it is a unique game on this floor."
