kazakhstan v englandEngland coach Fabio Capello has made light of suggestions that England’s players will be affected by tiredness in tomorrow’s World Cup qualifier away to Kazakhstan.

After a gruelling domestic season for most of his squad, Capello’s men have flown 3,500 miles to Eastern Europe for their Group 6 encounter with a number of players missing because of injury.

England won the corresponding fixture 5 – 1 although the scoreline was given a somewhat flattering look by 3 goals in the last 15 minutes.

The coach, who has overseen a 100% record in qualifying thus far has played down the fatigue factor but has warned against complacency saying:

kazakhstan v england fabio capello It’s a long trip but we must remember that they played well in first half at Wembley. This is the problem, not the jet-lag and the flight. It will not be an easy game.

I watched the last two games Kazakhstan played. They started well, pressing and running a lot and they had good positions on the pitch and were not easy to score against.

But sometimes when you run and press a lot by the end of the game the focus is not the same as at the start.
