Fabio Capello has last laugh on Telegraph Sport
"Mission Impossible" is how the Telegraph's sport section rated England's chances of beating World Champions Spain at Wembley today.
Football correspondent Henry Winter's match preview was headlined "Capello invites ridicule with Jones' midfield role" - a reference to the England manager starting with Phil Jones. Winter suggested "For England, it could be death by a thousand cutting passes. John Bull versus Juan Matador."
But Fabio Capello had the last laugh when England won 1:0. The Telegraph headlined its match report "Fabio Capello gets his tactics spot-on and luck follows".
