Capello recalled how Chinaglia contributed to his famous goal against England at Wembley in 1973.

“It began with his run down the right. I put the ball in but thinking about it now really doesn’t interest me,” Capello said, according to the ANSA news agency. “My memory now is of the calls he made to me recently to interview me. He always handled himself well with me. I’ve lost a person dear to me.”
