England boss Capello: No more self-inflicted distractions
England boss Fabio Capello doesn't want anymore distractions caused by his players
England tackle African Nations Cup winners Egypt at Wembley in their final friendly before Capello names his provisional squad for South Africa.
It cost Terry the England captaincy and resulted in Bridge ending his association with the national side, so Capello accepts it is a subject he can hardly ignore.
However, the Italian is clearly uncomfortable discussing such matters and has made his players aware of what he expects from now on.
"I want to speak only about things that happen on the pitch," he said. "Not outside the pitch and not outside the stadium.
"I want to speak about the style of our game. I want to speak about what happens during a game.
"For some players, their private life is a big problem. Also for the clubs and, at the end, for me. But I hope they understand it is really important, in this last period, they are careful in their lives."
