England coach Hodgson ignoring Capello comparisons

England coach Roy Hodgson is not allowing comparisons between his management style and that of predecessor Fabio Capello to affect the Three Lions preparation for Sunday's Euro 2012 quarter-final with Italy. "I am sure people will compare me with Capello because this is the team he qualified for this tournament," said Hodgson.

"I am sure he must still be disappointed not to be here coaching this team himself.

"But it will only become a hindrance if we allow it.

"Obviously there will be lots of things written that are not 100% truthful or that I wouldn't want to read or hear, but that's life.

"That won't stop me from preparing the team.

"There are no words that can affect my job with the team."
