Slovenia Kicks Off 'Group of Life' Trash Talk

The England/USA/Slovenia?/Algeria??  World Cup section may have won the instant, dismissive “Group of Life” tag. Brit tabloids may have dubbed the foursome EASY (England, Algeria, Slovenia, Yanks). But the Slovenes are determined to talk a good game, at least. The Balkan micro-republic, the smallest nation at this World Cup and a feel-good story after their shock elimination of Russia, got the festival of good wishes and international camaraderie off to a rollicking start today, promising to “wind up” England’s combustible Wayne Rooney and generally make the game “unpleasant.”

Fantastic, boys. Keep it up.
