Wembley - ('Erewego 'Erewego 'Erewego Mess): Superstitious England football coach Fabio Capello has voiced pre-match fears of an England-Switzerland five nil washout at Wembley Stadium tonight.

Despite posting his debut masterstroke 4-4-1-1 formation that will see Rooney playing the lone striker with Chelsea's Joe Cole in midfield Capello is awash with anxiety.

Press reports today that England's Man U star striker 'lost his lucky rabbit's foot amulet in a barbecue accident' have sent shivers of dread down the Italian's spine.

"Last time 'is 'appen Rooney broke a metatarsal," the Italian blubbered.

"Today is Ash Wednesday. Is omen, no? Ashes to ashes, dusts to dusts. Mama mia, I'll be totally f###ed."

Kick-off is at 8pm and odds of 2,500-1 for an England victory are still available with internet spreadbetting site Aintgottaprayer.con.

Sven Goran Erikson is 69.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
