Capello hints at major changes

England national team head coach Fabio Capello hinted that he will make changes for the crucial World Cup Group C showdown with Slovenia, after seeing his side labour to a 0-0 draw with Algeria.

Capello's side gave an insipid display in Cape Town, leaving them needing a win on Wednesday to ensure a place in the knockout stages in South Africa.

The Italian commented:"We still have to play another game and we hope that will be happier.

"I don't know if it's pressure or we're not in a good moment. We lost too many balls, it's not the same team I know.

"We played a good team, but we played too slowly. The players play well during the training – I don't know why it is.

"I want to see the spirit of the team and I didn't see it this evening. I said to the players it wasn't a good performance, but we are really lucky because we can play another game and I'm always confident in my team."

"I don't like to speak about individual players. When you don't play well it's because of the team.

"I can change the tactics, I will try to do something different. It won't be difficult to lift them before Slovenia – they know what they have to do."
