Capello happy to liken Man City keeper Hart to Buffon, Casillas

England boss Fabio Capello says Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart doesn't fail in comparison with Iker Casillas and Gigi Buffon.

Pressed over comparisons between the City stopper and Buffon and Casillas, Capello gave his new first choice the official seal of approval.

"I worked with Casillas and Buffon and Joe Hart is good, a really good keeper," said Capello.

"Roberto Mancini has chosen him for Manchester City and I have chosen him for the England team. He improved a lot last year when he played at Birmingham. That was really important.

"Both the two keepers we had who stayed with us (Hart and Ben Foster) are in really good form.

"Hart is good. He is young. He can improve. He has to work but he has the personality a keeper needs."
