Capello lays down law to England WAGs

NO-NONSENSE England coach Fabio Capello has laid down the law for &lsquo;WAGs&rsquo; at next summer&rsquo;s World Cup to ensure no repeat of the &ldquo;circus&rdquo; under Sven-Goran Eriksson.<br /><br />The presence of wives and girlfriends were seen by some of part of the reason for England&rsquo;s underachievement at the 2006 World Cup in Germany, and then the failure to qualify for Euro 2008.<br /><br />But after leading his side to the 2010 tournament in South Africa with a 100 per cent qualifying record, strict disciplinarian Capello has wasted no time in ordering that players should only see their loved ones one day at a time in between matches.<br /><br />&ldquo;I like what we made here at training where the players stay together,&rdquo; the Italian said. &ldquo;When we are in South Africa the players need the wives, friends, the girls. One day after each game.&rdquo; Capello then warned: &ldquo;We are there to play, not for a holiday.&rdquo;<br /><br />England&rsquo;s thumping 5-1 victory over Croatia which guaranteed qualification on Wednesday has sent the nation into World Cup euphoria with some believing Capello&rsquo;s men are good enough to relive the glory of 1966.<br /><br />As reward for their 100 per cent qualification, England are expected to be handed top seeding in the World Cup group draw which takes place in Cape Town on 4 December.<br /><br />But the ice-cool Italian is determined to keep his side&rsquo;s &ldquo;feet on the floor&rdquo; insisting the work has only just started. &ldquo;We are a good team, we are playing well, but we must keep our feet on the floor,&rdquo; he added.<br /><br />&ldquo;I always said that we are a really good team. Our players are really good players and the confidence we have now has improved a lot.<br /><br />&ldquo;We made the first step but we must work hard because to win the World Cup would be a really strong moment.&rdquo;
