JOHANNESBURG -- An England fan has been arrested and charged with trespassing for allegedly entering the national team's locker room following a 0-0 draw with Algeria.
South African police said the fan was arrested Sunday morning and was to appear in court later in the day.
"A 32-year-old man was arrested by the South African Police Service at the Bay Hotel in Camps Bay, Cape Town, on a charge of trespassing," police said in a statement.
The police statement did not confirm if the man is Pavlos Joseph, the south Londoner who gave an interview to a British newspaper claiming to be the intruder.
The Sunday Mirror printed an interview in which Joseph said he was directed to the locker room after Friday's match at Cape Town's Green Point Stadium when he asked a security guard where he could find a toilet.
Joseph, a 32-year-old mortgage adviser, reportedly walked unchallenged into the dressing room and immediately found himself in front of David Beckham.
"I thought, 'what the heck. I'm in the England dressing room. Why not say something?' " the paper quoted Joseph as saying. "I looked David straight in the eye and said, 'David, we've spent a lot of money getting here. This is a disgrace. What are you going to do about it?'
"I told them, 'that was woeful and not good enough.' "
Joseph said neither Beckham, who is injured and with the squad as a team ambassador, nor any of the players responded.
The paper said he was then escorted from the room by a FIFA official.
On Sunday, England players were planning a team meeting Rustenburg, South Africa, with coach Fabio Capello to discuss what went wrong against Algeria, a game that that left the team facing possible elimination from the World Cup.
Defender John Terry denied reports of a rift between Capello and the players, but acknowledged that there was a lack of passion from the team during Friday's game and says he understands why fans jeered the team from the Cape Town field.
"We've got a meeting tonight, watching the game to see where we went wrong," he told reporters at the team's training camp Sunday. "Everyone needs to get off their chest exactly how they're feeling."
The Chelsea captain said all the players were behind Capello and dismissed reports that there was unrest in the training camp.
"I have seen a few reports this morning and, on behalf of the players, I can say there's no unrest in the camp at all," Terry said. "We're obviously still disappointed from the game the other night but we have to pick ourselves up and go into our last game needing to win."
Police said Sunday the intruder was identified and traced after it studied video footage from the stadium.
However, the newspaper quoted Joseph as saying FIFA already knew who he is because he exchanged business cards with the official as he was leaving.
FIFA has described the security breach as "totally unacceptable" and promised security at World Cup stadiums would be tightened.
Police said "tactical decisions" concerning the inner perimeter at venues have been made after discussions with FIFA and South African World Cup organizers.
"Instructions in this regard have been issued to security personnel in all host cities. This is to prevent an incident of this nature from taking place during the rest of the tournament," police said.
The Sunday Mirror reported that Joseph has a ticket for England's next Group C game, against leader Slovenia on Wednesday.
FIFA spokesman Nicolas Maingot would not say Sunday whether FIFA would cancel the ticket to deny him entry.
Many of the 25,000 England fans in Green Point Stadium jeered the players after Friday's performance, which has been widely criticized as one of the worst of any team at the World Cup.
England has only two points after two matches, but Terry remained confident the team would beat Slovenia in Port Elizabeth on Wednesday and qualify for the round of 16. The Slovenians lead the group with four points, England and the United States have two apiece and Algeria has one. The simplest way for England to advance would be to defeat Slovenia.
"We realize the last game was totally unacceptable," Terry said. "The good thing is we can go into this next game four days later and prove people wrong, go out there and put on a performance but more importantly get the three points and get us through the group."
Although Capello guided England to the World Cup with a record of nine wins and one defeat in qualification, the team went into the competition hampered by injury problems and with key players such as striker Wayne Rooney unable to recapture their domestic form.
The draws with the United States -- 1-1 after taking the lead in the fourth minute -- and Algeria have led to doubts about Capello's ability to get the best out of England in his first World Cup as a coach.
Terry tried Sunday to quiet speculation about growing rifts within the team.
"I am not going to sit here and question the manager," Terry said. "I am here on behalf of the team and we're all fully behind the manager. Since the manager came in he has had his ways and his philosophies and his ideas and that's worked in the campaign. So nothing's changed from there.
"We shouldn't be looking at excuses or criticizing the manager."
