Montenegro, Ukraine, Poland, Moldova and San Marino will be England's opponents in Group H.
Capello said: "It is not an easy draw. You have to be really, really focused and play every game like a final - but that will be another manager's job. I'm focused on my job now to qualify for the Euros.
"We know Montenegro very well and we have to play against them again. Poland are improving and will be really focused and will be tough opponents.
"With Ukraine I remember the game we lost against them in the last match during the qualification for South Africa.
"Moldova are not so strong and San Marino the same."
Capello said the future for England was bright, with a crop of good young players emerging.
He added: "I am confident as we have some really interesting young players and the future will be them.
"Some young players will play more at Manchester United, some like [Kieran] Gibbs will play more games at Arsenal, [Jack] Wilshere is the future, and [Jordan) Henderson and [Andy] Carroll at Liverpool."
Capello also expressed concern over Steven Gerrard's infection of a long-standing groin problem.
The Italian said: "I heard something and hope he will be fit in a really short time for Liverpool and for England."
Rio Ferdinand insisted that England should be aiming to top the group.
The defender said on Twitter: "The qualifying group is similar to most qualifying campaigns, some tricky away games but have to be looking to qualify top."
