Frank Lampard has assured the fans and all supporters that there is no reason for England to panic ahead of their final group game against Slovenia.
Chelsea midfielder Lampard knows that England can take heart from having risen to the challenge of must-win situations in the past but the is also aware that Fabio Capello’s side cannot repeat their insipid showing in the goalless draw against Algeria in Cape Town.
Lampard told reporters that :”Credit to Algeria and the way they played – but we should beat Algeria if we are on our game.
“We know that and we just have to get our heads down for Wednesday.
“We have had big one-off games in the past and responded. I believe we can do that again on Wednesday.
“If you look at it and say ‘we’ve got to play Slovenia and beat them to go through’ then you should fancy England.
“But it’s up to us to perform. We can’t perform like we did against Algeria.”
