England Update: Fabio Capello

Fabio Capello, England Manager

England 1-0 Spain

‘Look, I saw a lot of games Spain played,’ said Capello. ‘You can never play further forward and try to win back the ball because they see you coming and pass, pass, pass around you. It’s impossible to win back the ball against them. Impossible.

‘However, If you play long-ball, and  quickly win back the ball, you can play against them. You have to play with those two lines, close together, across your box.’

Capello confirmed that Chelsea’s Daniel Sturridge will start against Ireland alongside Bobby Zamora in attack, while Kyle Walker will start at right-back alongside John Terry and Gary Cahill.

‘In different situations, I prefer to play differently,’ said Capello. ‘I would want us to win back the ball and play quickly on the counter-attack. But the confidence is very good after the result against Spain.’
