Capello hails England improvement: It's impossible to be better

England boss Fabio Capello hailed a superb 12 months after their friendly victory in Germany last night.

The Three Lions rounded off a memorable year in perfect style by beating Germany 2-1 in Berlin.

Capello's side dominated throughout and even recovered from the setback of conceding a needless equaliser thanks to a mix-up between goalkeeper Scott Carson and match-winner John Terry to secure their deserved success.

"I think it is impossible to be better than this," he said.

"We have played nine games and after every one I said the players had taken another step forward. Today is another one.

"The players played very well. They played like a team. That was very important."

Capello continued: "It was a very good result for us.

"I said yesterday I had confidence in the team because I felt the players knew what I wanted during the game and knew what they had to do.

"We played very well, all the players did. They played with confidence and technical ability and I am very happy about that."
