Chelsea boys rescue Capello's first night

Last updated : 07 February 2008 By Paul Lagan
Joe Cole and Shaun Wright-Phillips prevented Fabio Capello's first night turning into a complete embarrassment.

The Chelsea duo were the stars of the show as England defeated Switzerland 2-1 at Wembly last night.
Joe Cole set up Jermain Jenas for the first goal just before half-time, while supetr-sub SWP tucked home easily from six yards for the winner.
It was a torrid night for new boss Fabio Capello.
England were poor and if they have any pretensions at winning the World Cup in 2010, then they will have to improve 100%
But with the rightful skipper John Terry and midfield inspiration Frank Lampard ready to return for the friendly against France next month, England should put on an assured and positive display.
As for the other two Chelsea boys to grace the Wembley turf last night it was a mixed bag.
Ashley Cole was, to be blunt, awful.
His replacement, the in-form Wayne Bridge showed confidence and purpose, all the things Ash lacked.
Ash is due to play against Liverpool on Sunday, if Avram Grant's two games in a row rotation policy continues.
Bridge can count himself very unlucky to be the victim of Grant's mechanistic approach to team selection.
If he decides to apply the approach to the whole, fit squad, then can you imagine Drogs or Lampard agreeing with it?
No, I don't think so either.
Lampard will return on Sunday and Mikel is also available.
The midfield will provide Grant with his first serious selection headache.
Let's hope his trip to his homeland to secure his coaching qualifications was worthwhile.
