Jamie Carragher is ready to partner John Terry at the heart of England's defence in the absence of the injured Ledley King.
England boss Fabio Capello looks set to turn to the veteran Liverpool defender for Friday's match against Algeria, after he replaced King at half-time of the 1-1 draw with the United States.
King suffered a groin injury in the opener against the USA and it is unclear how long he will be sidelined.
Carragher, who joined England's World Cup squad after Capello lured him out of international retirement, believes he can form a solid defensive partnership with Terry if he is given the chance.
"Yes, but if I'm given the opportunity. Time will tell, we'll be able to assess after the performances," he said.
"You have got to be confident with the ability both players have got."
