Capello eyes maximum haul

14 Oct 2008 - 16:47:06

England boss Fabio Capello will settle for nothing less than a victory in Wednesday's World Cup qualifying clash against Belarus in Minsk.

Capello's side have won their first three group games - against Andorra, Croatia and Kazakhstan - and are on course to reach the 2010 World Cup Finals in South Africa.

The veteran Italian coach said: "We played one strong game against Croatia away - it is very important for the mind, for the confidence. Tomorrow is another important game away.

"I am always thinking about the victory, I never say to the players they have to play for the draw. They have to go to the pitch and win. This is very important.

"I spoke to the players and said this is very important - we have to wait six months for the next game. We are in a good moment and have to follow with positive results.

"Four games, 12 points - this is very important for me.

"I saw three games of Belarus and they are a very good team. Tomorrow will be no easy game.

"They drew with Argentina and Germany and this will be a very tough game."
