London, Sept.7 : After securing a score line of two goals to nil against Andorra, the England football team under coach Fabio Capello, plans to step up a gear against Croatia in the next match.

Kick starting England's World Cup qualifying campaign in Barcelona, Spain, Capello insisted better things would follow in Zagreb on Wednesday night.

"Croatia will be another game, not like this. We have to play to win, always. I will be happy if Croatia play like Andorra! But I don't think that is going to happen," The Sun quoted him, as saying.

The Italian was pleased with Theo Walcott's contribution on his first England start in place of David Beckham.

Capello said: "I chose the first XI and at this moment, against this opposition, it was better to pick Walcott.

"We started very well and for about 15 minutes Walcott was incredible.

"He is dangerous, he is fast, he played well."
