​Capello's appointment was seen as a major coup for England. A foreign manager with an impressive trophy collection and a reputation as a disciplinarian, Capello's first match saw Jermaine Jenas and Shaun Wright-Phillips score England's goals in a 2-1 win over Switzerland in 2008.  Capello never quite got England playing convincingly, however, and they crashed out of the 2010 World Cup in a heavy defeat to Germany, and he resigned before Euro 2012.

Yahoo News - over 1 year
(Reuters) - Toronto FC clinched a spot in the Major League Soccer playoffs for the first time after goals from Herculez Gomez and Sebastian Giovinco helped them to a 2-1 win over New York Red Bulls on Wednesday. Needing a point to guarantee their first playoff berth after coming into the league in 2007, Toronto built a 2-0 lead in the second half before Shaun Wright-Phillips pulled one back for the Red Bulls shortly before the final whistle. The three points not only clinched a playoff berth for the Canadian club but lifted them into second spot in the Eastern Conference, five behind the Red Bulls with two regular-season games remaining.

What's Next For The Denver Broncos?
Huffington Post - about 3 years
By Joel Corry, National Football Post While the Seattle Seahawks bask in the glow of their decisive Super Bowl XLVIII victory, here’s a preview of things to come for the other team that took the field last Sunday, the Denver Broncos. Salary Cap Denver has a little more than $10.25 million of salary cap room once tenders for restricted free agents (which includes cornerback Chris Harris) and exclusive rights players with expiring contracts are factored in, in addition to the cap space gained from the voiding of cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and running back Knowshon Moreno’s 2014 contract years. A decision must be made regarding cornerback Champ Bailey, since he wants to play a 16th NFL season. The 35-year-old will be entering the last year of a four-year, $43 million contract (worth a maximum of $46.75 million through base salary escalators) after a season in which he was limited to five regular season games because of a left foot sprain that occurred in a pre-season mat ...

Denver Broncos A Pick-Your-Poison Team In Super Bowl
Huffington Post - about 3 years
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Denver was walloped 40-10 by Seattle in the preseason with Ronnie Hillman fumbling, Montee Ball stumbling and Peyton Manning grumbling. The Broncos are a much different team now, one that should return to Colorado on Tuesday for a victory parade clutching their third Lombardi Trophy. Chewed out by boss John Elway after that spectacle in Seattle last summer, the Broncos responded with a season for the ages, scoring more points than any team in NFL history (606) with Manning throwing for more touchdowns (55) and yards (5,447) than anyone ever had. They're not always the prettiest of passes, as Seahawks star talker and cornerback Richard Sherman pointed out, but Manning's always won with his brain, not his arm. Manning didn't disagree with Sherman's assessment that he "throws ducks." "I do throw ducks," he said. "I throw for a lot of yards and TD ducks, so I'm actually quite proud of it." Manning's "Duck Dynasty" consists of an unprecedented five p ...

NFL Conference Championships: Preview and Predictions
Huffington Post - about 3 years
NFL fans wait all year for Championship Sunday. The AFC and NFC title matches feature equally talented squads battling familiar foes with unrivaled intensity. This Sunday will showcase football play of the highest caliber as the consensus four best teams compete for a chance to play one more game in 2014. The similarities between the Denver Broncos, New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers highlight both new and traditional aspects of winning team attributes. None play in a dome, which is appropriate for a Super Bowl set outdoors in New York. All four teams are fortunate to possess the all-important "franchise" quarterback. They are very different men: two are late-30s quintessential pocket passing field generals and two are new-breed, mobile QBs capable of enormous rushing plays and rocketed deep balls. Finally, it is no coincidence that on Sunday fans will witness the best four offensive lines working in the game today. Bill Parcells would be proud. One dif ...

Denver Broncos Top Kansas City Chiefs 27-17 (VIDEO/PHOTOS)
Huffington Post - over 3 years
DENVER (AP) — Peyton Manning walked away a winner in the biggest game of the year so far and, as a bonus, the Broncos might not even have to send his uniform off to the cleaners. Manning threw for 323 yards and a touchdown Sunday night and was barely touched by Kansas City's sack-happy defense in Denver's 27-17 victory over the NFL's last undefeated team. It means the '72 Dolphins can rest easy for another year. And it puts Denver and the Chiefs in a tie atop the AFC West at 9-1, with a rematch set in two weeks. Manning has another big game before that — at New England in yet another showdown against Tom Brady. If the Broncos' offensive line does anywhere near as good a job in that one as it did against the Chiefs, the quarterback's ailing ankles — mummified with athletic tape for this critical game — should be feeling much better. "The protection was outstanding, we ran the ball consistently, tried to keep them off-balance," Manning said. "We wanted a mix of running and pas ...

Denver Broncos Rout Baltimore Ravens As Peyton Manning Throws 7 Touchdowns
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
DENVER — Both the NFL opener and Peyton Manning were a little tardy. It was well worth the wait. Manning and the Denver Broncos waited eight long months, then another 33 minutes to get the season started because of a lightning storm. After three punts to start things off, Manning threw a record-tying seven touchdown passes, something no one had done in 44 years, in directing Denver to a 49-27 victory over Super Bowl champion Baltimore on Thursday night in a much-anticipated rematch against the team that ended the Broncos' playoff run in January. Manning connected with his most prized addition, Wes Welker, and former college basketball player Julius Thomas and Demaryius Thomas for two TDs each in piling up the most points scored on the Ravens in their 18-year history. "I don't like excuses but I do think that lightning delay did slow us down," Manning said. "You guys have seen teams break it down: you come up for the team prayer, you put your hands in and you say, `Broncos on 3,' and ...

Report: Broncos Star Suspended
Huffington Post - over 3 years
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Broncos linebacker Von Miller received a six-game suspension under the NFL's substance-abuse policy Tuesday, taking away the best defensive player from a team many expect to make a run at the Super Bowl. The league wanted a longer penalty for the third-year linebacker, but the sides agreed to less than half the season, a person familiar with the negotiations between the linebacker and the NFL told The Associated Press. The person who spoke to the AP did not want to be identified because details about the negotiations were not public. Broncos executive vice president John Elway said the team was frustrated with what happened "and, I think, disappointed in Von." "We'll live with that decision," Elway said. "What I'd like to do is try to do everything we can to prevent any other situations." According to the NFL, Miller is eligible to play and practice through the last two preseason games. His suspension, without pay, will begin Aug. 31, a ...

  • 2009
    On 14 October 2009, with England having already qualified for World Cup 2010, Wright-Phillips was selected in the starting XI against Belarus at Wembley Stadium.
    More Details Hide Details Unusually, he was joined in the side (which was missing Wayne Rooney through injury) by Tottenham Hotspur's Aaron Lennon, meaning England played with two recognised wingers. Mid-way through the second half, Wright-Phillips drove in a shot from the edge of the penalty area which beat the dive of the Belarus goalkeeper. He appeared as a second-half substitute against Egypt on 3 March 2010, scoring England's second goal and assisting Peter Crouch for the third as they came from behind to win 3–1.

He followed that up with a goal in a Football League Cup tie with Crystal Palace. He went on to score in three successive home games against Burnley, Hull City and then Arsenal in the League Cup. He found himself in-and-out of the team under manager Roberto Mancini, with new signing Adam Johnson's form forcing Wright-Phillips to be a substitute in most matches, including City's game at his former club Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. He came off the bench to replace Johnson in the 60th minute and then set up Craig Bellamy's second goal in the 4–2 win. Despite his impact in the game, Wright-Phillips had not secured a place in the team.
  • 2008
    He was selected in England's critical Euro 2008 qualifying game against Croatia, substituted at half time in favour of David Beckham with England trailing 2–0, with England eventually losing 3–2 and therefore missing out on Euro 2008.
    More Details Hide Details

On 29 October, Wright-Phillips swore at former Middlesbrough manager Gareth Southgate during Manchester City's 2–0 defeat to his club, after Southgate complained about Wright-Phillips appearing to go down too easily after a challenge. The Football Association warned Wright-Phillips about his future conduct.
    On 28 August 2008, he re-joined former club Manchester City on a four-year contract for an undisclosed fee, believed to be in the region of £8.5 million.
    More Details Hide Details On his second debut, Wright-Phillips scored two goals against Sunderland in the 0–3 away win in the Premier League.

  • 2007
    On 8 September 2007, Wright-Phillips was selected to start against Israel in a UEFA Euro 2008 qualifier he scored the first goal in the 3–0 victory and won the England sponsor's Man of the Match award with his performance.

    He was selected to play in the 2007 League Cup Final, which Chelsea lost to Tottenham Hotspur.
    More Details Hide Details

    More Details Hide Details
  • 2005
    His appearances were initially limited, starting only 15 times for Chelsea in 2005–06 and struggling to find scoring form.
    More Details Hide Details An inconsistent first season with Chelsea culminated in him missing out on the opportunity to travel to Germany with the England squad for the 2006 World Cup. Despite making few first-team appearances, Wright-Philips maintained that he was happy at Chelsea and wanted to stay and fight for a first-team place. He received a boost from his manager José Mourinho, when the latter declined to make an approach for Real Betis winger Joaquín, stating that he had enough options in terms of wingers.

    More Details Hide Details He joined the club on a five-year contract after agreeing to personal terms and passing a medical. He had previously said he would not leave Manchester City.
  • 2004
    On 17 November 2004, he became one of the main targets of racist chants from sections of the Spanish crowd at an international friendly between England and Spain in Madrid.
    More Details Hide Details However, he brushed that aside with his performance in his next Manchester City game at Portsmouth, saying to reporters after the game, "I just let the football do the talking." He also has a similar response regarding his father, saying in an interview with manchesteronline.co.uk: "The press brought up my adopted father's name. They relate to his name and that is fine by me – it comes with the name, but I will be my own man. I have made my own path and started to take my own steps."
    Wright-Phillips made his England debut as a substitute for Nicky Butt against Ukraine on 18 August 2004.
    More Details Hide Details He scored the last of England's goals in a 3–0 win, described by BBC Sport as "crowning a solo run with a stunning finish." He was a regular member of England's squad during qualification for the 2006 FIFA World Cup and made his first competitive start in a 0–1 away win over Wales. After a decline in form, however, especially a poor performance away to Northern Ireland, and a lack of games following his move to Chelsea, he missed out on a place in the squad for the World Cup finals. After a good start to the 2007–08 campaign, Wright-Phillips received an England recall to play against Germany in a friendly match at the new Wembley Stadium. Wright-Phillips was brought on as a substitute in the second half during the match in which England lost 2–1 to Germany and he was named the England sponsor's Man of the Match after an impressive performance.
