Fabio Capello shrugs off Wayne Rooney's 'silly mistake'

England manager Fabio Capello says his team played well for 35 minutes in the first half in the 2-2 draw away at Montenegro but admits Wayne Rooney's "silly mistake" in getting sent off in the second half allowed the hosts to be the better side in the latter stages.

The result sees England qualify for next year's European Championship and Capello says that was the most important thing, even as he admits that they need to improve.
