England, France players back at work

6:02 am on 22 June 2010

The unsettled France and England World Cup football teams are back at work and re-focussed on trying to qualify for the second round.

France returned to training a day after boycotting a session in support of their expelled striker Nicolas Anelka.

But sponsors are starting to distance themselves from the scandal-hit team. One of France's biggest banks has cancelled its television campaign with the team, and a fast-foodchain decided over the weekend to stop using an advertising film featuring Anelka....

Fabio Capello is back in charge of England's World Cup campaign after a player revolt launched by John Terry fizzled out, two days before a decisive match against Slovenia.

Capello has confirmed Terry's outburst won't cost him his place in the side.
