England v Wales Preview
England manager Fabio Capello
“I’m happy with the players. All of the players have trained really hard today, so I’m very happy with the training.
“Frank Lampard is still a really important player, like all of the players that are here and those that aren’t like Wilshere, Walker, Gerrard.
“I think he will be ready to play tomorrow. We played a different style in Bulgaria but he’s still one of the most important players in this squad – he absolutely has a future in the squad.”
“I think the young players have a chance to play. I will choose the players when they are ready to play in important games like this.
“I hope that we win tomorrow and qualify, it’s a really important game.”
“I think it’s very important to win tomorrow. Wales are in a really good moment of form.
“It will be a tough game because Wales are playing really well. I watched their game with Montenegro and they created a lot of chances to score goals and their players are very confident.
“They created chances on the counter attack so it will be a really dangerous game for us.”
England player John Terry
“The last time we played them it was a tough game but we started very well and got off to a good start so that made it easier in the end.”
“We’re expecting a really tough game tomorrow night though, because they’ll be full of confidence after their win against Montenegro.
“The players know each other inside-out really. I played against (Steve) Morison not that long ago for Norwich and he was a handful.
“Ideally, it will be nice to get off to a good start like we did in Bulgaria, but if it doesn’t go according to plan it’s important that we stay patient and the fans stay with us.
“It’s really important that we pick up the three points tomorrow night.”
“There are a lot of players who are really pushing on and playing well for their clubs though, so it’s good to see the management getting them involved.”
“We saw the other night that Chrissy Smalling came in and did very well and so did Gary Cahill alongside me.
“Everyone’s really fighting for their places so we all feel under pressure with that.
“I think that’s a good thing, no-one has ever taken the shirt for granted and I can assure you now that’s never been the case since I’ve been involved with England.
“We’re all very proud to wear the England shirt and we’re very fortunate to do so.”
