Capello acknowledges Three Lions did not reach their potential.
Fabio Capello accepted his England team did not play to his expectations, but pointed out: "The teams are all square in the group - nothing more."
The Three Lions were left frustrated after a disappointing scoreless draw with Algeria in Cape Town and the Italian recognised that his side had not played to their potential.
"We missed some chances , some easy passes and some control of the ball. I hope after another game we will be happy.
"I don't know if it was pressure or not a good performance, but I think it was not a good game because we lost too many balls, too many passes.
"And I think it was not the team I know from training and the qualifiers.
"Probably it is the pressure. I don't know about fear because I don't have any [fear]. But the other team played well and won the ball back quickly.
"I don't want to talk about individual players because it is all about the team. I will try to do something different, but it will not be difficult to lift the players because they know what they have to do."
And what they have to do is beat Slovenia in their final group game next week.
