No complaints from Capello

England coach Fabio Capello had no complaints after being grouped with the United States, Algeria and Slovenia for the 2010 World Cup finals.
England will play the USA in Rustenburg on 12 June, before clashing with Algeria in Cape Town six days later and ending their Group C campaign with a match against Slovenia in Port Elizabeth on 23 June.
Capello said: "It's not so bad. We've played the US and Slovenia at home, and played well and won.
"But when we have to play here in June it will be different. Algeria beat Egypt and they have a really good team now. Every opponent will be strong.
"It's good we don't have to move from the place we will be staying at for our first game. But the US are a good team, they always play very well in the World Cup.
"Then we play our last two group games at sea level - which will be different. It will be more humid and windy, but we still have to win and have to go forward. You have to respect all the teams.
"I remember our game against Slovenia very well because in the second half we suffered because Slovenia are a team with really good organisation and their style is to play with a lot of passes. Technically they are very good."
