thumbnail Hello,

Capello will not sing 'God save the Queen'...

Fabio Capello has said he feels uncomfortable at signing the England national anthem at the World Cup, and confirmed he will be keeping lips sealed when it's played.

"The anthem? I know the words to it, but I don't think it's right to sign an anthem which is not from my country, even though I get goose pimples when I hear it," he told Sky Sport 24.

Capello has said Wayne Rooney is the key to his chances of success, and he has told him what he expects in South Africa, while reminding the rest of the squad to maintain the effort.

"Rooney is an important player, but it's also important that the team is able to win," he added.

"He has not been scoring much recently, but he is recovering 100 per cent. He has great qualities to become a top goalscorer."
