Noel Gallagher thinks "it's all over" for England's Fifa World Cup campaign, after they drew 0-0 with Algeria earlier tonight (June 18).

Featuring as a guest on James Corden's World Cup Live chat show, the former Oasis man also passed judgement on the England manager Fabio Capello.

He said: "Before tonight everyone really respected him. But he's kind of turned into some kind of silly wizard."

He added: "If they couldn't beat Algeria tonight I can't see them beating Slovenia. Slovenia are going to need to draw that game to go through, so they've got something to play for, it's all over."

Despite thinking England won't progress from the group stages at the tournament, Gallagher did reveal that when the national team were knocked out of the 2002 World Cup in the quarter-final by Brazil, Oasis' single 'Stop Crying Your Heart Out' made the group a lot of money.

"We knew when it was picked as a single it would be released at the time of the [2002] World Cup," he explained. "We thought 'We [England] are bound to get knocked out to this' - 'Kerching' I said."

Set to head to Johannesburg to watch the final regardless of whether England make it, Gallagher will hope he can influence the result after claiming he was Italy's lucky mascot for their successful World Cup campaign in 2006.
