VIDEO: Capello sees progress in young talent
Monday, 09 August, 2010
The England Manager believes first-team experience has helped youngsters.
Watch the video of Fabio Capello's press conference here.
Fabio Capello believes young English players like Joe Hart and Jack Wilshere have earned the chance to play for their country after impressive performances last season.
The England Manager has freshened up his squad for Wednesday's clash with Hungary following a disappointing World Cup campaign that ended in the Second Round.
Capello believes Arsenal midfielder Wilshere and Manchester City goalkeeper Hart benefitted greatly from playing regular first-team football last term on loan at Bolton and Birmingham respectively.
He said: "Young players need to play regularly. This happened for Hart. He went to Birmingham last year and improved as a player.
"Players need to play - I can't select someone who doesn't play during the season.
"Wilshere played last year and for this reason he is now improving. It's really important that young players play during the season."
Capello admits he has learned from the World Cup in South Africa and is now fully focussed on preparing the team for the European Championships Qualifiers, which start against Bulgaria at Wembley on 3 September.
"I think new experiences are important," added the Italian. "I have to understand what really happened and if mistakes were made.
"Everyone made mistakes. I think I can do something for this national team, I have good experience to improve.
"I know what I have done wrong. I will try to do better for the Euros."
