England boss Fabio Capello has reaffirmed his hopes that Manchester City fullback Wayne Bridge will rethink his international retirement.

Capello refused to be drawn on Bridge's decision not to shake hands with John Terry prior to City's 4-2 win over Chelsea on Saturday, but reiterated the door to the national team remains open for the left-back.

"It is a private problem, not my problem," said Capello.

"The door is always open and if Wayne Bridge wants to come back, the door is always open. Not only for him - for all the players. We are monitoring all the players."
