Man Utd's Evra: If Capello gets it right, England will dominate

Manchester United fullback Patrice Evra has reflected on the Premiership's Champions League success compared with the England national team's problems.

"At United, when we lose a match, it's a crisis," he said.

"In two years I have never had the experience of being on the losing side twice in succession, touch wood.

"The culture in England is a winning one. If, say, we go to Arsenal and get a draw, the coach will still give us what for.

"But at Monaco, for example, if we got a draw at Marseille, it'd be high fives from the boss. There you see the difference in a nutshell.

"At national level, England has great players but just haven't found the recipe to make a great team out of the ingredients. The day they have a coach that can get that right, it'll be bad news for the rest!

"Having seen the respect he is commanding, Fabio Capello could well be that man. The England internationals at Old Trafford have spoken to me about him, of course."
