England might have been sandbagging Monday or it might merely have been cautious, trying to avoid any injuries ahead of Saturday's World Cup opener against the United States. Whatever the reason, coach Fabio Capello's squad was less than convincing while scoring a 3-0 victory over the Platinum Stars of South Africa's Premier League. The goals should have come fast and furious, considering the gap in quality between the teams, but England was limited to only the three scored by Jermain Defoe, Joe Cole and Wayne Rooney.

The lead attorney for Pfc. Lynndie R. England said yesterday that her first public court hearing was postponed for logistical reasons and that statements made by another lawyer indicating possible plea talks were "inaccurate and false." England, 21, the Army Reservist from Fort Ashby, W.Va., who has become one of the most visible faces in the Iraq prisoner abuse scandal, was scheduled to appear in a military court in Fort Bragg, N.C., yesterday. The hearing instead was postponed until July 12. Colorado attorney Richard A. Hernandez, England's lead civilian lawyer, said the hearing was rescheduled to allow more time to arrange for the testimony of witnesses now in Iraq and because another civilian lawyer on the defense team, Rose Mary Zapor, had stepped down, citing family health problems.

Yesterday in one sentence: Much of the Spanish team has pretty much played year-round since it won in 2010, and we are seeing the fruits of it - it's sadly clear none of them have anything left in the tank. What's on tap: Colombia vs. Ivory Coast, noon, ESPN; Uruguay vs. England, 3 p.m., ESPN; Japan vs. Greece, 6 p.m., ESPN. What you'll see: There are a lot of “musts” in play Thursday in Group C and Group D action. We kick it off with Colombia and the Ivory Coast, both of which are coming off opening-match wins and, with a win Thursday, could all but assure qualification in the next round.

Since suffering a hip injury against the Cleveland Browns in Week 2 and sitting out the following week against the Houston Texans, Ravens running back Ray Rice has played approximately 70 percent of the team's offensive snaps, silencing the talk that there would be an even timeshare at the position. Bernard Pierce got the leftovers, usually playing between 20 and 25 snaps per game. But in Sunday's blowout loss to the New England Patriots, a game in which the Ravens trailed by 17 points by the end of the first quarter, it was Pierce who got the bigger share of the snaps at running back.

Baltimore Sun staff members give their thoughts on the Ravens ' game against the New England Patriots in Week 16 of the 2013 NFL season. Jeff Zrebiec, reporter: Given how well the Ravens were playing and the fact that they were at home, their poor performance today was pretty shocking. Joe Flacco was clearly not himself because of the sprained knee, but there are no excuses for this effort. The Ravens did not win the battle at the line of scrimmage like they had in the past against New England.

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco made it through the final full practice of the week without further injuring his sprained left knee. Flacco, who practiced on a limited basis all week while wearing a brace on his left knee, was listed as questionable on the injury report but on Sunday is expected to make his 108th consecutive start. "He looked good," Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said. "I don't know if it was a progression. He looked pretty much the same all week and got through all the practices and took his reps and did well.

Kenneth H. England, whose portrayal of "Uncle Sam" at patriotic events made him well known to Marylanders during the past two decades, died of a heart attack Thursday at Harbor Hospital Center. He was 77.England, a retired food service manager, sported a white goatee and bore an uncanny resemblance to the patriotic figure -- particularly when wearing his costume of striped trousers, starred vest, top hat and tails. He carried a red, white and blue cane."There may be many other Uncle Sams, but there was only one Ken England as Uncle Sam," said Louis V. Koerber, the Baltimore paint company owner who originated the "Pause for the Pledge" that has become part of Flag Day celebrations in Baltimore and across the nation.

A roundup of NFL experts' picks for Sunday's game between the Ravens and New England Patriots. * Vinnie Iyer at the Sporting News says the Ravens will beat the Patriots , 24-20. The Ravens swept the Patriots last season, including their impressive victory in the AFC title game at New England. They still match up well against Tom Brady, and this one's back in friendly Baltimore. The Ravens' defensive backs are outstanding in covering and make quick tackles after the catch, and don't need to contend with Rob Gronkowski, setting them up to keep Brady from overworking the middle of the field.
