Aston Villa striker Bent: Capello okay with England miss

Aston Villa striker Darren Bent shrugged off his glaring miss in England's 2-2 draw with Switzerland.

Bent fired over a great chance to win the game for England but ­revealed that Fabio Capello told him to forget the glaring miss.

Bent said: "After the miss, I went straight over to the side and Fabio said: 'Don't worry about it.'

"All I can do is plug away. All ­strikers miss chances and I am sure by the time the next one comes along I will bury it. I expected to score that chance.

"As a striker, you practice taking chances and obviously today it wasn't meant to be.

"We move on from it and take the positives. Our second-half ­performance was good. Fabio has shown real faith in me this season and I thank him for that. He played me for 90 minutes which he hasn't done in the past."
