Capello tips Spain for glory


England boss Fabio Capello believes that Spain are the most technically gifted side in Euro 2008, so much so that he feels England could never match the Spaniards. Capello seemed to hint that Spain would be his favorites to win the tournament.

"Spain's midfield is the best in the tournament, technically they are fantastic," he told BBC Sport.

"They play lots of passes but with different styles, not just long balls.

"It is not in the style of English football to play like Spain. You have to find the balance of Spain's style and English style."
