Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti has revealed he sees England making a bigger impact in the World Cup in South Africa than 2006 winners Italy. Although the former AC Milan boss will undoubtedly be rooting for his national team to triumph, he feels Fabio Capello has assembled a better squad than the Azzurri.

The England team has excellent credentials. They have players who play at a very high level and there are great expectations for the World Cup,” Ancelotti said on Fifa.com. "In Italy the situation is different because they are going through a transitional period. (Coach Marcello) Lippi will do well to unite the players who are emerging within the squad and those who were successful in 2006."

After an almost flawless qualifying campaign, England, under their new manager, are widely considered to be entering the World Cup with their best ever chance in recent times to win the tournament.
