Coach and captain hail Barry's return

Fabio Capello and Steven Gerrard have spoken of their delight at the return of Gareth Barry for Friday's Group C clash with Algeria, lauding the extra dimension he gives to the team.

Barry's participation in South Africa had been in real doubt after he sustained an ankle injury for Manchester City on 5 May, and he has undergone intensive rehabilitation in order to get himself fit. The 29-year-old has even spent some nights sleeping in an oxygen tent to speed up the healing process – and the good news for England is that he is now fully fit.

The story is too old to be commented.

Even England will win easily over Alegeria

LOL, Today Algeria looked in better form then England.

Hat trick by Rooney pays well! I think they will win with more than 3 goals tonight. Barry makes no difference for the squad by the way...

They will winn. But that the City player is back in the squad is no news for me.
