The ‘Capello Index’

England boss, Fabio Capello has published his controversial Index ratings of the English players’ performances at this year’s FIFA World Cup 2010.


The Italian coach caused uproar prior to this summer’s showpiece in South Africa when it emerged that he intended to rate the showings of his players after each game, and make his thoughts public knowledge. He was eventually persuaded by the Football Association to shelve that idea, as it was decided that scores should not be handed out until the tournament was over.

In this Index he as rated Jermaine Defoe as the best performer from the England squad at the World Cup, while his least favorite player seems to be Robert Green……… I think we all would agree to that

Here is the full list of his Index Ratings. These are the average marks from each match out of a total of 100):

Robert Green – 51.67
David James – 59.28
Glen Johnson – 57.18
John Terry – 60.48
Ledley King – 57.50
Jamie Carragher – 59.04
Matthew Upson – 60.21
Ashley Cole – 59.58
Aaron Lennon – 57.64
Frank Lampard – 58.58
Steven Gerrard – 60.98
James Milner – 59.40
Gareth Barry – 57.50
Shaun Wright-Phillips – 61.09
Joe Cole – 55.45
Wayne Rooney – 58.87
Emile Heskey – 60.15
Jermain Defoe – 62.47
Peter Crouch did not play enough minutes to generate a mark.
