Lampard: Capello will get it right

ENGLAND midfielder Frank Lampard is convinced manager Fabio Capello will make the correct decision when naming Wayne Rooney&rsquo;s strike partner for tomorrow night&rsquo;s crucial World Cup qualifier against Croatia.<br /><br />With England needing a win to confirm their place in next summer&rsquo;s finals, boss Capello has a welcome selection headache on his hands as Jermain Defoe and Emile Heskey look set to fight it out for a place in the Italian&rsquo;s starting line-up.<br /><br />Aston Villa&rsquo;s Heskey occupied the shirt for Saturday&rsquo;s 2-1 friendly victory over Slovenia, although Defoe scored, and Lampard believes both players have made a strong case for a place in the side and has backed Capello to make the right choice.<br /><br />&ldquo;I think both players have made great cases,&rdquo; Lampard said. &ldquo;Emile has made a great case in the way he has played and Jermain has made the headlines because of his goalscoring.<br /><br />&ldquo;We all have faith in the manager. He has shown in his career that he make the right decisions.&rdquo;
