Capello's Midas-touch will get us World Cup glory: Lampard

Posted By: Staff

London, Sep 11 (ANI): England star Frank Lampard has revealed that coach Fabio Capello has instilled self-belief in his players, turning a bunch of players who failed miserably to qualify for Euro 2008 into a group of potential World Cup winners

Capello, who arrived in England with a reputation as a master tactician, is proving that he has a Midas touch as well after England won eight games out of eight to qualify for the World Cup in South Africa.

The England coach's management style as well as his knowledge of the game has also left his players contented with the way things are going.

"History now says Fabio gets all the big decisions right. He's had great success and it's not by chance. He is a fantastic manager and his biggest Midas touch has been getting us working together as a team and as a unit. You can see the results of that pretty much in every game of the qualifying round," The Sun quoted Lampard said.

Besides referring to team selection, Lampard also praised his coach's tactics mid-game and his making of crucial changes at the right time. (ANI)
