England boss Capello admits to taking risks ahead of Spain clash

Fabio Capello has admitted to taking some selection risks ahead of tomorrow's international friendly between England and Spain.

The Italian has included the likes of Daniel Sturridge, Jack Rodwell, Bobby Zamora, Phil Jones and Danny Welbeck in his squad to face the world champions and although he admits some selections may be risky, he feels they are calculated.

"We have taken a risk, but not a lot," he said at Friday's pre-match press conference.

"We are preparing really well. We respect all the teams and we respect Spain.

"We know the style of Spain is difficult to play against. Tomorrow will be difficult because the ball possession of Spain is really good. The most important thing is that when Spain lose the ball, we get it back. We need to play really quick when we get the ball back.

"We need to play with confidence and for the fans to support us in every moment."
