Capello warns no England player is safeOctober 17th, 2008 - 1:58 pm ICT by ANI
London, Oct 17 (ANI): England boss Fabio Capello has warned his buoyant players not to start believing they are an automatic choice for the team.
The Three Lions coach is not satisfied - despite four wins out of four in World Cup qualifying, The Sun reported.
Capello insisted that England is some way off the finished article and that he is still looking for new players to improve his team.
And that has opened the door for Aston Villa duo Ashley Young and Gabriel Agbonlahor to stake their claims for inclusion.
It is clear no one can rest on their laurels with the Italian planning changes for the friendly against Germany in Berlin next month.
Capello warned: It doesnt mean that because we have done well in Belarus, these are the players I go with. No, you always have to prepare the future. For me, the friendly matches are experiments to decide the best XI, to decide the best group, to decide everything.
I needed to experiment and I will do the same in the next three games starting with Germany and Spain. Someone can be injured or someone might not be able to play in the next few games. I know all the English players and I will decide who to pick when the time comes. So before the Germany game, I will try and find some new players, he added.
Capello intends to stick with 23-man squads - which means if new youngsters are included, Michael Owen may again be left on the sidelines.
Capello is not going to worry about that, though. He is delivering what the country wants. The former Real Madrid chief added: The players are good and without good players it is impossible to win. You can be the best manager but it would be impossible to win without good players. (ANI)
