Capello calls for Premiership passion from England players

England boss Fabio Capello will call for a passionate response from his players ahead of their do-or-die clash with Slovenia.

Capello hinted he wants an all-action Premiership performance from his England stars on Wednesday.

"I am surprised," he said. "I can remember exactly what happened in the first game we played against Switzerland at Wembley after I took over.

"I also remember after we beat Croatia away we started to play differently. Now I hope it will be the same.

"We have to play like we train. But the problem is not only when we win the ball. We have to win it back quickly.

"We have to press the opponents to win back the ball. I want to see that spirit."
