England captain: I've got big faith in Capello, he's fantastic. Carragher: don't blame Capello

LIVERPOOL - Steven Gerrard expects England fans to boo the team during tomorrow night's friendly against Hungary.
Three Lions captain Gerrard will lead Fabio Capello's men out at Wembley for the first time since their disastrous World Cup campaign.
England look set to be given a tough time by fans who have purchased tickets for the match — although reports indicate the attendance will be well down on the 90,000 capacity.
And Gerrard admitted: "I'm expecting a mixed reaction. I'm sure there'll be boos but we have to take it on the chin. We deserve it, we let them down.
"Hopefully, with time, we can show the fans we are a good team and that we're desperate to make them happy."
Asked if he would boo the national team, he added: "I probably would."
England boss Fabio Capello received a lot of criticism for his man-management and tactics during the World Cup.
But the FA chose to stick with him — a decision Gerrard backs.
The Liverpool skipper added: "I've got big faith in this manager.
"It would be very stupid and naive not to have that moving forward. He's a fantastic manager.
"You can't shift all the blame onto the manager in these situations.
"We have to share the blame and take it on the chin together."
Capello said yesterday he did not know how to improve the mindset of his players, who he described as playing with fear rather than confidence.
Gerrard added: "All the players will listen very carefully over the next couple of days and looking forward.
"Obviously things didn't work out in South Africa so we have to listen to the man who has the experience and follow his lead.
"The manager spoke on behalf of all of us yesterday. For me there are no excuses at all.
"The simple message is we have to show how sorry we are by our performances on the pitch."
Gerrard added: "We have to study where we went wrong on the pitch against Germany and try to put those things right.
"The mental side of things will only improve by winning games."
When pressed on whether he felt Capello was right to play him out of his favoured central midfield role, Gerrard said: "I don't feel I was played out of position.
"I'll play anywhere and won't cause an issue.
"But I'm not going to lie and say it's not difficult to be playing for England because it is.
"The results haven't gone the way we would have liked but hopefully three or four games down the line we'll have given a bit of confidence back to the supporters."
Capello faced more humiliation earlier this week after calling up Paul Robinson and Wes Brown for tomorrow's friendly — only for the pair to announce their retirements from international football.
But Gerrard said: "If the manager picks you to play for England my opinion is you should come and play — but players are different.
"Some have injury problems, some are frustrated for being left out of major tournaments.
"I don't know how I'd deal with that situation but there is no way I was going out after the experience of South Africa — I want to go out on a high.
"I've got total confidence in the manager, his coaching staff and the players around me that we can change things around and become a good team."

JAMIE CARRAGHER says England's players must shoulder the blame for their World Cup failure — not Fabio Capello.
The Three Lions play their first match since the shambles in South Africa against Hungary at Wembley tomorrow.
England boss Capello has selected a new-look squad for the clash.
And Carragher, who came out of international retirement for the World Cup, believes Capello can turn it around.
The Liverpool defender said: "I would never criticise Fabio because he has done too much in the game.
"If he stopped being a manager tomorrow he would go down in history as one of the great managers.
"I always find it hard when players criticise managers because we've never been managers ourselves.
"We all realise what comes with playing for England - it's massive - and when something goes wrong everyone jumps on it.
"Obviously the World Cup didn't go well but the players have to look at themselves and say we didn't perform as we can."
