Fabio Capello is looking forward to Italy-England, but he doesn’t think either nation will reach the Final of Euro 2012.
Italian tactician Capello started the year as England boss, but quit after a disagreement with the FA and was eventually replaced by Roy Hodgson.
“I have contrasting sentiments about Sunday’s game,” the former Milan, Roma and Juventus boss stated.
“I worked with England for four years and I can’t easily forget that. However, Spain and Germany will be the two finalists at Euro 2012.
“Germany have an incredible spirit and have real strength, while Spain are the side who play the best football even if they are missing something in attack – they need a player like Lionel Messi.
“Generally speaking, I think that these two sides are superior to the rest of the teams in the competition.”
Germany will face Greece in the last eight, while reigning champions Spain will have to hurdle France in the quarter-finals.
