Now, both men are in the same country with player call ups and injury concerns as potential flash points. Their relations could get sticky. Chelsea's John Terry, Frank Lampard, Joe Cole, and Ashley Cole see regular England duty.
Capello has been noticeably silent on Ancelotti's hiring, a noticeable contrast to the warm reception he gave Big Phil Scolari.
