Capello reminds England defenders of Shevchenko goal threat for Ukraine
England manager Fabio Capello has told his defenders to be on their guard when they face Ukraine this Saturday in Dnipropetrovsk - because Andrei Shevchenko always scores against him, according to Telegraph.co.uk.
England go into the match, which will not be aired on TV but will be shown online at Telegraph.co.uk, having already qualified for the World Cup in South Africa.
However, Capello is keen for his team to maintain their 100 per cent record in qualifying and has warned that Shevchenko will have to be marked tightly.
The £30 million Chelsea flop, now playing for Dynamo Kiev, scored during England`s 2-1 win at Wembley the last time these two sides met back in April.
Capello said: "We have to be careful. He always scores a goal against me. It`s incredible. Always.
"When we were at Wembley, if you remember, he played the last 20 minutes and scored. Always when I was manager in Italy it was the same, it is incredible. But I hope it will end this time."
With qualification for 2010 already in the bag, the pressure is off, but Capello does not expect his players to make the same basic mistakes that occured during the recent friendly against Holland in August.
He said: "The silly mistakes we made were always in friendly games, not during World Cup qualification like this game. We scored a lot of goals and defended very well.
"I always show them DVD`s and usually speak with the defenders and the group. Everyone has to understand what happened and what we need to do in order not to make more mistakes."
