Easy headline


Fabio Capello may bring the England squad to Thailand to play a game in the build-up to next year's World Cup in South Africa, officials said yesterday.

Andy Anson, the chief executive of England's bid team for the 2018 World Cup, said Thailand, coached by former Everton and England midfielder Peter Reid, had extended an invitation and it was being considered."We are actively trying to find a date for England to play here in Thailand," he said while on a visit to Asia to drum up support for England's bid.

"Ultimately that is Fabio Capello's decision -- he is the one who decides what type of teams England need to play against. But I think it would be fantastic to see England out here.

"There is a passion for England and the national team, it could work very well.
"We have to ultimately wait for England to qualify, then the draw and finally Fabio Capello and that is the way it should be."

England are 10 points clear of Croatia at the top of Group Six in European qualifying and are just one result away from booking their place in South Africa.
