Terry backs Capello to make point in Zagreb

England skipper John Terry believes Fabio Capello's tactical skill and experience will prove key in this evening's World Cup qualifying showdown with Croatia in Zagreb.

The Chelsea defender is confident that England will prove their doubters wrong and come away from the crucial match with at least a point.

England's away record in the Euro 2008 qualifying campaign was poor with defeats in Croatia and Russia and a goalless draw away to Israel. But, away from the pressurised atmosphere of Wembley, both Terry and Capello are confident they can produce a quality performance.

Terry is backing Capello to be the mastermind in his first truly competitive match at the helm and compared him to Jose Mourinho due to the respect he commands within the England squad.

He said: "The manager has that aura about him. He's like Mourinho a little bit. He's got that real confidence and slight arrogance about him that all top managers have. Our manager has that and it does rub off on the players.

"I certainly think that, if there's a change to be made after five or 10 minutes, he'll make that.

"That's the confidence he's got in himself to make the big decisions. You'll see that in the bigger games. Maybe after 20 or 30 minutes, he'll change it on the pitch immediately.

"That's where the big managers excel.''

Terry believes the result will be a draw or win in Zagreb if England perform how they want to, even though they have struggled in big games recently.

"It's been tough the last two or three years,'' he said. "I suppose you could say it's not encouraging, but I'd say the fans should stay with us.

"We have got the players and it's so frustrating sitting here, saying the same thing for the second year. We have to win back the fans and everybody's confidence in the England team.

"This is the key game, I understand that. But, whether we win or not, it's not going to decide who qualifies. I think we can come here, walk away with a draw and be very happy.''
