Capello believes England will win World Cup

Posted By: Staff

London, Jun 23 (ANI): England coach Fabio Capello has said he still believes that his team will win the World Cup.

England must beat Slovenia to be sure of reaching the last 16. Defeat or a low-scoring draw will ensure that England team fly straight home, The Sun reports.

But Capello is not thinking of merely qualifying from Group C, but is looking ahead to the final in Johannesburg on July 11. I'm not crazy - I still believe we'll win the World Cup," Capello said ahead of do-or-die clash against Slovenia in Port Elizabeth.

"This is a really good squad. I think if... no, not if, when we win, then all the teams have to fight against us," he said.

Commenting on John Terry's fiasco, Capello said: "That does not exist. He is one of the most important players. You can speak about the game, not John Terry."

"It's a really important game. The rest is all out of the minds of the players and my mind and I'm happy. I saw the players really focused on the game. It's normal to have the pressure at this moment," Capello said.

"We have a play-off - we're in or out. For this reason I think we are ready. We have to win. The players know that. There is only one result we need," he added. (ANI)
