Capello denies economy jet caused injury for Chelsea's Lampard

England boss Fabio Capello has played down any link between Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard's injury and the type of plane used by the squad to travel to Qatar.

There were suggestions that the players had been too cramped on a charter flight but Capello said: "It is the same plane we used to fly to Trinidad and Kazakhstan."

Chelsea are also understood to be calm about the situation and will be compensated anyway because the Football Association insure the players against injury while on international duty.

It's been confirmed Lampard will miss the next three weeks.
