Noel @ the stadium: it's right for Capello to continue but England need an English manager

Former Oasis star Noel Gallagher has tipped favourites Spain to win Sunday's World Cup final against the Netherlands.
The 43-year-old Manchester City fan is attending Sunday's final at Soccer City in Johannesburg.
Gallagher told he believes "the Spanish are the best team in the world.
"Since the year leading up to the European Championships and subsequently from that they have been amazing."
Gallagher highlighted midfield as the area in which the game will be won for Spain, who will have the world class Barcelona pairing of Xavi and Andres Iniesta up against Holland's largely defensive duo of Nigel de Jong and Mark van Bommel.
"The key part of the pitch is can De Jong and Van Bommel stop Iniesta and and Xavi doing the business," said Gallagher. "De Jong plays at Man City and he's a stopper. Van Bommel, he's just destruction on legs. But the Spanish players face that a lot in the Champions League. I think it will be won and lost in the midfield."
Gallagher also believes that although it is right for Fabio Capello to continue as England boss in the short term following the national side's lacklustre showing in South Africa, there should be a change at the top soon.
"I think England desperately need an English manager," explained Gallagher. "They have to get Harry Redknapp sooner or later. He seems to be the only person who could inspire the players to play."
Gallagher was particularly unimpressed with the performance of Wayne Rooney, who failed to score a single goal in South Africa as England were eliminated in the second round.
"He played like he'd been hypnotised in the tunnel before and somebody had whispered in his ear, 'see the round thing, when you get out there you'll never have seen one of them before and you won't know what to do with it'," said Gallagher.
At the end of the day they are not good enough. Next season when I'm watching TV I don't want to hear about Wayne Rooney or Frank Lampard being world class - because you can be world class against Wigan or Sunderland or Tottenham.
"World class means coming to a tournament like this and pulling it off on the world stage and they've never done it. Are there many English world class players? I don't think so."
It is the second time in a row Gallagher has attended the World Cup final.
Four years ago, in Japan and South Korea, he became a lucky mascot for the Italian side after he became friends with striker Alessandro Del Piero.
