Capello drops hint about City’s AJ
England boss Fabio Capello has hinted that Manchester City
midfielder Adam Johnson could force his way into his World Cup
The 22-year-old winger has been hugely impressive since
joining City from Middlesbrough at the end of the January transfer
window, starring in their recent victories over Burnley and
Capello will be without David Beckham in South Africa while
Aaron Lennon is battling to overcome a groin problem, and the
Italian looks set to hand Johnson his first cap in the friendly
against Mexico next month.
Capello said: “Adam Johnson [has caught my eye this season].
He’s come up from the Championship at Middlesbrough, where he
played in a different position, and he’s done well with Manchester
“Now it’s important he gets some international experience.”
