David Bond on the England World Cup Win: Vindication for Capello with his reputation at stake

Posted by Kendall Harmon

You only needed to watch Fabio Capello's post-match interview on the BBC to realise just how much England's 1-0 victory over Slovenia meant to the Italian coach.

His impassioned performance in front of the cameras matched his players' increased intensity on the Port Elizabeth pitch. Make no mistake about it, the stakes were very high not just for Capello but for the whole of English football.

Read it all and make sure to watch the interview as well (if you can, it is sadly unavailable in the U.S).
