Shilton: Capello right to leave Sunderland striker Bent at home
The former Charlton and Spurs striker has six caps - but ex-keeper Shilton, who has 125 caps, thinks everyone should have faith in boss Capello.
He said: "I can understand why Sunderland fans will feel Darren should be at the World Cup.
"But you have to trust the manager and he has to select teams, systems and players he thinks will work.
"I think it's fair enough he left Darren out if he felt that, for all his goals, it wasn't going to work.''
