Russia coach Capello hoping to face England in World Cup

Russia coach Fabio Capello hopes to face England in the World Cup.

Capello answered the request of Football Association chairman David Bernstein to attend a 150th anniversary launch event, feeling it underlined the fact no acrimony remains over his resignation on a point of principle after John Terry was stripped of the England captaincy for a second time.

However, he would like to be in the opposition camp now he has a new international team to work with.

"We are all friends now," Capello said. "It was very good to come back and see the people I used to work with. I have no problems with anyone.

"I like coming back to London. I have a house here and I have been back a few times.

"I can't talk about what happened with England, but I am enjoying my life with Russia and my hope is that we play England in Brazil at the World Cup. That would be very good."
