Stoke defender Shawcross: Capello just had to see my gaffe!

Stoke City defender Ryan Shawcross believes he's shaken off his clanger on Saturday.

Shawcross impressed in Tuesday's draw with Manchester City just days after gifting Shaun Wright-Phillips a goal in their FA Cup draw.

To make matters worse, England boss Fabio Capello was among the crowd in Manchester Eastlands, but Shawcross told The Sentinel: "That happens.

"If I carry on performing well, then one day I might get a chance, but my main aim is to play well for Stoke.

"I was quite pleased with how I reacted after the error.

"It was a massive mistake, and the lads have taken the mickey a lot, but I was happy with my performance here."
