The players know this too and it’s likely that the idea that a bad performance might remove him sooner rather than later has crossed their minds.
This is all such an unhealthy situation and it’s hard to see it ending well for Capello or for England. A couple of good wins and good performances are essential to restore belief and to knock down the anti-Capello press. But those same critics will lie in wait and will be back to get him on another occasion. Failure to deliver two wins could be the end for him by Wednesday morning.
The Jackals are circling and one day, probably in the not too distant future, they will have their day.
