The pair are in doubt for the clash with Italy, De Bruyne suffering ligament bruising and Hazard a hamstring pull, with both being given a 50-50 chance of playing by coach Roberto Martinez.
“Even if we [Italy] get into some trouble when they [Belgium] attack aggressively, we are the favourites.”
Going on to talk about the quality of coaching in the tournament and in particular Italy’s Roberto Mancini, Capello didn’t seem impressed with anyone else but his fellow countryman.
“I haven’t seen anything groundbreaking and nobody is phenomenal,” Capello said. “However, he [Mancini] has seen quality in players that were ignored by others.
“There are 18 or 19 players who guarantee the same output but at the same time can change games.”
