FABIO Capello will check on the facilities and playing surfaces at Royal Bafokeng Sports Campus when he arrives in South Africa for a pre-World Cup coaches conference today.

The England boss has raised concerns about the standard of the training pitches at the site, which the Football Association plan to use as their base for the World Cup finals this summer.

The hotel construction is also not quite finished - plans for a clubhouse and medical facilities need to be completed - but officials are confident of delivering Capello's requirements on time.
