    The match is a warm-up for the Euro 2008 co-hosts who have struggled to impress for months but will also be a significant for the England players, eager to make a good impression on the coach.

    Capello of course, is focusing on the World Cup qualifiers later this year after England failed to make the Euro 2008 finals.
