England head coach Fabio Capello has urged his players to remain fully focused as they prepare for Tuesday's Wembley friendly with Sweden.

Capello's side go into the game buoyed by a 1-0 victory over Spain at the weekend and are 1.72 to complete a double by seeing off Sweden, while they are 8.00 to win by a 2-0 scoreline.
However, Capello is wary of getting too carried away by a famous victory over the reigning world and European champions.

The Italian said: "When you think the opponents are better than you, then you have to play at the top. Your concentration and focus is right at that level, all game.

"But what is difficult is when you play a team and you think you are better than them. Then you really need to play at the top level. This is the change we need to make.

"Against Sweden it will be really difficult. Their movement when they defend is very good and then they play on the counter-attack.

"Also, now, after we have beaten Spain, they will come here thinking we are good, so they know they will have to play better and so will we."

Capello has confirmed that Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge will make his international debut against Sweden, with Bobby Zamora and Gary Cahill also handed starts.

John Terry will return to lead the side, having been left out of the eleven which shocked the world and European champions.

England are 11.00 to win Euro 2012, with Spain 3.50 and Sweden 67.00.
