Capello ignores Lennon at his own peril

Yes, we have heard that English team is left brained in its success. They beat Ukraine today and Beckham who replaced Lennon was there to lay the cross which got Terry the winning goal. Before that it was all Gerrard and Rooney.
But Aaron Lennon represents the future and Beckham the past.
The hallmark of a great coach is not just to win games but to set the template of a future team that can carry on his good work. Lennon is a great little player and he is versatile, not one dimensional as so many claim. I will say this, look at the clips from the Spurs vs Villa game a couple of weeks ago which saw Lennon playing wide down right with his blistering changes in speed, quick footwork, and probing crosses which set up both goals for Spurs. Liverpool surely must have seen what he did that day. As an Arsenal fan I was delighted that Lennon found his touch and sent Villa packing.
The lad lacks confidence. He needs it in spades. With the media going ga ga over Gerrard and Rooney where is he going to find it? Which is where Capello steps in and gives his vote of confidence to Lennon and finds ways for other players to exploit his talent. He is better than Walcott. Get him to believe in himself. England will be so much more deadlier and unpredictable with genuine threats down both flanks.
