Capello insists England keep up the good work

Fabio Capello has warned his England squad that Saturday's victory over world champions Spain will count for little unless they also beat a less formidable Sweden team at Wembley tomorrow night. Capello will pick John Terry as captain and the Chelsea defender is sure to fulfil his obligations to give a captain's press conference this lunchtime, although he will be unable to comment on the police investigation into allegations he racially abused Anton Ferdinand. Capello has also promised to give a debut to the Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge, as well as pledging that the likes of Jack Rodwell, Bobby Zamora and Kyle Walker will all feature. The England manager believes his team's greatest challenge will be shifting from the role of underdog against Spain to favourites against the team ranked 14th in the world. "The important thing when you think opponents are better than you is you have to play at the top [of your game]," the Italian said. "Your concentration is at that level, but what is difficult is when you play a team who thinks you are better than them. Now, after we have beaten Spain, they will come here thinking we are good, at the next level, so they know they have to play better. This is the next step, that we have to take to go forward." match.
