|CAPELLO CALLS FOR FULL COMMITMENT FOR JUNE 1 CLASH WITH T&T|
|England head coach Fabio Capello says any player lacking the commitment required to represent England should "stay at home" ahead of the forthcoming friendlies.Capello issued his message ahead of the end-of-season double header with the United States at Wembley on May 28 and away to Trinidad and Tobago on June 1 in Port of Spain
And he made it clear any player opting out of the two friendly internationals for less than a genuine reason after lengthy domestic season will put their England future in jeopardy.
Capello said: "By the time of the two games, some of the players will have been on holiday for a week already!
"Do I want to see commitment to England? If a player doesn't love to play for England, then perhaps he should stay at home.
"Players must love the England shirt and wearing the England shirt. That is all there is to it.
"If someone doesn't want to come and play for England, it means they don't love the England shirt enough. Obviously they must prefer to go on holiday."
Capello will continue his policy of rotating his captains in the two friendly internationals before making a final decision on who will lead the side by the time England face the Czech Republic at Wembley in August.
But the picture still appears to be bleak for John Terry who has been given no guarantees by Capello that he will be part of that rotation plan.
Terry was skipper during the Steve McClaren era but Steven Gerrard wore the armband when he was absent through injury against Switzerland and then Rio Ferdinand against France last month.
Capello said: "Has Terry been treated fair by myself passing the captaincy around? I have choices to make. I am running my own tests and I will make my choice based on my ideas.
"The important thing is that everyone plays for England at the top of their game and are as relaxed as they play for their own clubs.
"Will Terry get a chance in the rotation policy? We will see. There are two more games. We will decide every game. But I will have decided my captain by the time of the friendly with the Czech Republic in the new season."
Capello insisted reports he was angry over allegations Terry had parked in a parking space for a disabled person was having no bearing on his decision.
He said: "It's his life. I think it is a mistake he made but it's not those things I get angry over."
Capello is happy that England are making steady progress in the right direction despite losing in the Stade De France.
He said: "After the Switzerland game, I said it was a promising start. After the France game, I said there had been a huge step forward even though a few people were surprised I said that.
"I expect another big step forward from the next two games."
Capello was speaking during a trip to Lesotho to help promote the Football Association's development of football in Africa at grass-roots level ahead of the 2010 World Cup finals.
But he believes the benefits of such an exercise in terms of vote gathering for England's bid to stage the 2018 finals should be of secondary importance.
He said: "This is a concrete project and I am happy to be part of this initiative. I don't think we should focus on the benefits we may get from such an exercise.
"If it brings some benefits in terms of hosting the World Cup one day, then all the better but this should not be the focus." (April 15,2008.Teamtalk)
