Capello shrugs off questions over bench role for Newcastle's Owen

England boss Fabio Capello played questions about leaving Newcastle striker Michael Owen on the bench last night with a straight bat.

After victory over Switzerland, Capello remarked: "I think about the substitutions according to what happens on the pitch," he said. "According to what I see on the pitch, I decide who to bring on and take off. But all the players are level for me. All are equal."
