Remember the Capello Index, his player-rating system that got former England boss Fabio Capello into hot water before the 2010 World Cup? It’s back.
Less than 30 minutes after the final whistle, Capello’s rundown of every England player was available for all to see and Ashley Young was rated the lowest.
Frustration: Ashley Young was rated England's worst player
No player matched the 75.01 awarded to Alan Dzagoev in Russia’s 4-1 win over the Czechs on Friday, but the Capello Index did deem England to be better than France — just: the England average was 0.04 better than their French rivals.
England: Lescott 70.89, Parker 64.92, Terry 64.77, Gerrard 63.69, Cole 63.26, Oxlade-
Chamberlain 62.17, Hart 62.07, Milner 61.60, Johnson 61.04, Welbeck 60.75, Young 58.09. Average: 63.02
