Euro 2012 Draw

December 2, 2011 by staff 

Euro 2012 Draw, Having attended the Bolshoi last week, and arriving on Friday in this dramatic city where the ballet is also on show, Capello hopes that the Euro 2012 draw will gift England a route to end a long curse, to settle 46 years of hurt. If the balls fall unkindly, of course, England will find themselves back in the Nutcracker Suite.

Capello confirmed on Friday that this tournament would be his last tour of duty. “As an England manager this is it for me,” he said, clarifying some misconstrued comments made by Sir Trevor Brooking, the Football Association’s director of football development.

Capello is riding off into the sunset, most probably into the studio lights of Italian television, but he wants to go out with a bang, not a whimper. “I want to end with a trophy.”

Such ambitious reverie will be realised only if metatarsals and exhaustion are avoided, if the young crop of talents such as Phil Jones, Danny Welbeck, Daniel Sturridge, Kyle Walker and Jack Rodwell continue to mature, if Jack Wilshere and Steven Gerrard return fit and firing after injury and if Uefa reveals uncustomary clemency and suspends one of the three matches of Wayne Rooney’s ban.

Most immediately, Capello needs the fates to show compassion when the draw is made in a 50-minute ceremony, involving the usual intriguing local folk singers and sadly not those currently filling stadiums here from Whitesnake to Belinda Carlisle, or even the revered local ballet troupe.
