Fabio Capello - England’s mistake?

2007-12-15 00:00

IT is November 2009, half-time at Wembley and, needing a draw to qualify for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, England are trailing 1-0 to Croatia. A desperate nation holds its breath.

Gianfranco Zola, assistant coach and translator, explains: “Eh, the Boss, eee says it’s a disaster and you’re having a shocker. But eee says Italy are winning 2-0, so is no problem for him to get you tickets in Joburg, if you still want to go to the World Cup.”
