Fabio right back at start as Johnson plays joker

Never let it be said that England's manager Fabio Capello is boosting his average by seeking inferior opposition for friendly matches.

‘No regrets’ on Wright-Phillips’ return

Even a player with the boundless self-confidence of Shaun Wright-Phillips knows the dangers of telling Chelsea they were fools to let him go, 48 hours before Manchester City walk out at Stamford Bridge. But the contribution he has made since "going home" to City, as he describes it, speaks for itself and Wright-Phillips said yesterday that only Chelsea could tell whether they had missed a major opportunity by marginalising him.
