Bilic: England are predictable

Croatia manager Slaven Bilic has called England's play predictable ahead of their World Cup qualifier in Zagreb this Wednesday. Bilic helped his country qualify for the European Championships at the expense of England last year and is expecting to continue his dominance over Fabio Capello's side. He told The Sun: "England can't play good football because they play predictable football. I don't know why. I would know that if I was training with them and speaking to them. "As a national team manager you have to talk to them. If I was England manager I would find out because, really, I don't know why they sometimes perform nowhere near what they can. "No one is fearing England. If anyone should be worried about Wednesday, it's England. "I expect us to win the group. I expected that two years ago and now definitely so. My team is definitely better than the one that beat England twice."
