England manager Fabio Capello has committed his future to the national side until 2012.

The Italian boss has agreed an amended contract which will see him remain as England coach until after Euro 2012.

The amendment to Capello’s original contract removed a break clause which would have allowed him to walk away from the England setup after the World Cup came to an end in July.

There had been worries ahead of the World Cup that Capello would take the vacant Inter Milan job following the tournament but yesterday’s announcement that Capello had agreed a new deal put the rumours to bed.

This will no doubt be a boost to the 23-man England squad who flew out to South Africa yesterday to begin their final preparations for the tournament which kicks off on 11 June.

England’s opening game of the competition will take place a day later when Capello’s side take on USA in Rustenburg.
