England advances on Defoe's goal

Slovenia finishes the tournament with four points.
Port Elizabeth, South Africa (Sports Network) - A first-half goal from Jermain Defoe was enough to give England a 1-0 win over Slovenia at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Wednesday in the final match of Group C play for both teams, allowing the Three Lions to advance to the next round.

Defoe volleyed home a James Milner cross in the 23rd minute to help England finish with five points, along with the United States, which got a late goal from Landon Donovan to beat Algeria, 1-0, in the group's other match.

Slovenia finishes the tournament with four points, one short of a place in the knockout round. continue>>
