at 12:29 24 Jun 2010
As compiled by The Irish Times, here are some choice cuts from their contrasting analysis of England v Slovenia:
Alan Hansen: "Once England got the goal the confidence levels surged, they were excellent."
Eamon Dunphy: "They just didn't grow in confidence at all after the goal."
Gary Lineker: "The goal really settled them, didn't it? They pushed on from there."
Ronnie Whelan: "You'd think they'd have kicked on from when they scored, but they actually got worse."
Roy Hodgson: "England's crossing has been absolutely outstanding."
John Giles: "Some of the crossing was just awful."
Lee Dixon: "A great performance."
Dunphy: "Shocking...absolutely incredibly bad...pretty awful stuff."
Lineker: "He looked more like the Rooney we know."
Whelan: "Rooney is a major worry, his form, his body language, his demeanour, everything."
Dixon: "Gerrard was outstanding."
Dunphy: "I can't believe how bad Gerrard was today."
Redknapp: "Across midfield we were top drawer."
Giles: "Barry got worse as the game went on, Milner, Gerrard and Lampard the same."
'Arry: "Bring it on! Whoever we play we'll be difficult to beat."
Whelan: "If they don't improve they'll go straight out, it was a very, very inept performance."
