Capello lauds performance of young players in England loss

England boss Fabio Capello has praised the performance of some of his younger players in Wednesday night's 2-1 friendly loss to Hungary.

Jack Wilshere and Kieran Gibbs made their debuts whilst Adam Johnson and Theo Walcott were given game time and Capello was happy with how the future is looking for the Three Lions.

"In the second half we saw some different young players, and their performance was very good," he said.

"It was important for them to play here at Wembley and not away from home.

"I think we have found some new players for the future."
