Capello's aura fades as England struggle

After a lengthy honeymoon with England, Fabio Capello is starting to feel the kind of pressure he was used to when coaching Real Madrid and AC Milan.

Capello goes into Friday's World Cup match against Algeria with his decision-making under serious scrutiny for the first time since taking charge 30 months ago.

Just a month ago the pundits and public in England were still gushing about how the no-nonsense coach had resuscitated a team that was at its lowest ebb after failing to qualify for the 2004 European Championship.

The bubble burst when England was held 1-1 by the United States in last weekend's World Cup opener. That came after unimpressive displays in warmup matches that left Capello seething.
