Fabio Capello is delighted with the way his England players have been training since they came together on Monday.
The Three Lions face Egypt at Wembley on Wednesday as the build up for the World Cup in South Africa this summer gets underway in earnest.
The Italian manager is absolutely delighted that, in his first England get together since November, the players are showing the same quality and determination that brought a convincing qualification for the World Cup.
He said: "After four months [apart] I'm now really happy because I saw the same things in training that I saw back in November.
"The players understand what I want to do. It's important for us to get together in training. I would like to see a determined England like the one I saw before.
"On the training pitch I have seen exactly what I wanted to find and hopefully they will show it on the pitch against Egypt.
"It's not easy to win the African Cup of Nations three times in a row if you are not a good team. I watched their games in that tournament and they are a really good team.
"Egypt are organised and the main thing for us is that it will not be an easy game. They have a very good defence and it's not easy to score goals against them with eight men always behind the ball."
