Capello announces team to face Andorra

Dads Army In a pre-match press conference for tonight’s Wembley World Cup qualifier against Andorra, Three Lions supremo, Fabio Capello, has announced that he will be recalling some of England’s ‘Old Guard’.

He confirmed rumours that both David Beckham and Gary Neville would start, despite the former being on a yellow card and both lacking in match fitness.

“Andorra is a country with a population of about 23,000, in theory I should be able to pick 11 Englishmen from the Wembley crowd who would be able to beat them!” Capello explained to the bored hacks who were desperate for any morsel of interest about tonight’s walkover. 

“As it is” continued the immaculately dress Italian “I have selected an England team made up of all the players I’m not really that bothered about but who are good enough to beat the team put in front of us, which could’ve been pretty much any Englishman who plays in the Premier League. Andorra are so bad that I was even tempted to give a call up to Titus Bramble” laughed the England boss.

Before tonight’s match there will be a medal giving ceremony to the eleven non-playing members of the 1966 World Cup winning squad, including popular Radio 5Live pundit, Jimmy Armfield.

It is believed that they had volunteered their services to play the match for England but Capello had baulked at their combined age of 904 although he did remark that he did comment that ‘they would have the experience to see us through and could probably all still move as quickly as David Beckham’.
