Capello "emotional" seeing Engand play France

Former England coach Fabio Capello admits he was "emotional" seeing his players take on France in the Euros.

Capello prepared these players, taking them on an eight-game unbeaten run in the Euro 2012 qualifiers before he quit in February over the FA's decision to strip John Terry of the captaincy.

"When England's players ran out against France, of course there was an emotion - I felt it," he admitted to the Daily Mail.

"England is part of me now, the job was an attraction, the chance to win something after so long. Everybody wants it for this reason.

"That is why it is the job I wanted, that is why it is the job Roy Hodgson, my friend, wanted.

"It is difficult watching on television when you want to be on the bench of the national team. It is a big difference. The dream is to win trophies, to make people back home happy. I miss it. This is normal."
