London, Sep.9 (ANI): England football coach Fabio Capello has offered Croatian counterpart Slaven Bilic a vote of thanks - for doing his team talk for him ahead of tonight's World Cup qualifier at the Wembley.
Bilic told Sun Sport that captain John Terry should look at his own club, Chelsea, before accusing Croatia and Arsenal striker Eduardo of being a diver. He also claimed the Three Lions had lost their 'Englishness' suggesting they no longer possessed the fighting spirit which used to make them feared.
That was despite the fact Capello's men thumped Croatia 4-1 in Zagreb last October.
Capello exclaimed: "Thank you, Mr Bilic. No more. It is the best. I have no need to motivate my players after this. He prepared the game. He tried to provoke a reaction. It is fantastic assistance. Thank you. I'm very happy for this because I don't need to motivate my players for the match. I will simply tell them to remember what Bilic said." (ANI)
