Fabio Capello. You might be Italian, and as such, might be happy to only look at super-thin supermodels. But getting on the Dean Ashton pie-consumption bandwagon isn't going to help.

The England boss has said he spoke to Ashton before the Trinidad and Tobago game, and he asked the striker to shed a few pounds.

'We followed Dean in a lot of games last season and he was very good but he had injury problems before that,' said Capello.

But sir...I'm better now!

'He has since told me he is fit now. I spoke with him in Trinidad and I told him he had to lose weight and be better physically because technically he is good but he is not quick.'

The medical staff told him to drop two kilos in weight in order to be more likely to force his way into the reckoning at international level.

Pfft...Ashton fat? You'll be saying Frank Lampard and Wayne Rooney need to head to Weight Watchers soon...oh...
