    Capello has published his controversial Capello Index ratings for England's players from the World Cup. The England manager was prevented by the Football Association from running the marks during the tournament but has now gone public with his assessment of their performances.

    The goalkeeper Robert Green gets the lowest mark for the tournament with a rating of 51.67 out of 100, having made a dreadful mistake in his only game, against the USA. Jermain Defoe tops the list with an average of 62.47 across the matches he played, which included scoring the winner against Slovenia.

    England's second-best player according to the Capello Index was John Terry (60.48). Uruguay's Diego Forlán, who was awarded the official player of the tournament award, gets an average score of 65.77 by comparison.

    Wayne Rooney, widely accepted to have had a dismal World Cup, is marked at 58.87, marginally higher than Spain's Fernando Torres and only slightly less than Jérôme Boateng, part of the Germany team that finished third at the tournament.

    England's best individual performance of the tournament was rated by the index to be Steven Gerrard's against the USA (66.36).

    The marks are calculated using a complicated scoring system which awards points for categories such as long passing, assists, mistakes, dribbles, goals, shots and headers.

    Robert Green 51.67

    England boss Fabio Capello has demanded
    that player ratings
    website the Capello Index be removed from the
    rankings, which score players on their
    performances in this summer's
    World Cup, appeared online on Saturday. "I
    did not authorise this
    and am angry it was published," said Capello,
    while the Football
    Association claimed it was "satisfied" with the
    Italian's actions.
    The project was set for launch before the
    World Cup but, following a
    media outcry, it was postponed. "The
    index was published without Mr
    Capello's knowledge and his
    representatives have taken immediate
    steps to have the material taken
    down," read an FA statement. The
    website uses a statistical
    system devised by former Roma, Juventus
    and Real Madrid coach Capello to
    award players a score out of 100.
    Not a single England
    international appears in the top 45 players
    from the tournament,
    following the team's dismal showing in South
    Africa that ended with a
    4-1 last-16 defeat to Germany.

    And Tottenham, so close to my heart, is still to me the greatest club." - Bill Nicholson
