Capello: England’s next manager in for a bumpy ride

ENGLAND manager Fabio Capello has warned his successor not to expect a straightforward passage to the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil following Saturday’s qualification draw.

Capello, who is due to stand down next summer said: “It is not an easy draw. You have to be really, really focused and play every game like a final - but that will be another manager’s job. I’m focused on my job now to qualify for the Euros.”
