The former England and Real Madrid Boss has stated that England has all it takes to go all the way in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar because of the timing of the event.

The Three Lions are already rated as huge favorites to win the tournament due to take centre stage in Qatar, and was remarkably moved from the usual June/July slot to November/December because of the burning heat in the middle east nation.

Though, this move caused a world wide opposition, Fabio Capello believes this could work in favor of the Three Lions as the players won’t suffer from the usual burnout after a rigorous Premier League season.

Speaking to The Sun, the Italian stated that the problem for English players is that they arrive fatigued at the end of the English season.

Liverpool fatigued against Real Madrid

The Italian further buttressed his point by making reference to Liverpool, who he stated had played 63 games this season, and the effects were very visible in the UEFA Champions League final against Real Madrid.

In his words: “Did you see Liverpool on Saturday? They weren’t fresh, that was their 63rd game of the season.”

Capello also added that while he was England manager he had always stated that the best time of the year for England was September, October and November.

He said that during this period the English team is always fresh, running and very clean.

Though the legendary manager’s opinion could be considered valid, there are potential issues with it because the Three Lions first game against Iran is just eight days after the Premier League break.

The now retired manager enjoyed a blissful career coaching big clubs like Real Madrid, AC Milan and AS Roma. However, he endured a distasteful time with the English national team with on field and off field issues causing distractions for him. He also took the team to the world cup in South Africa, where the nation suffered one of her worst tournaments in history.

The former England boss believes that this time around things could be different. He believes that players like Harry Kane and Jack Grealish have what it takes to drive England to the promised land. “Kane is involved at the moment, and he listens to every word from Conte” the Italian said.

He further stated that though Jack Grealish has the quality England needs, he needs to learn how to be important not just on the ball but off it.
