Fabio Capello is beginning to receive support to remain in his post as England coach. It had been assumed that it was only a matter of time until the Italian moved on after England’s humiliating 4-1 defeat at the World Cup to Germany, which saw the country unable to even equal the finishes achieved under Sven-Goran Eriksson.

However, with the English Football Association having said they will take two weeks to review Capello’s position, the Italian is now drawing out some serious support for a continuation of his tenure.

Yesterday former Republic of Ireland captain Roy Keane, now Ipswich manager, jumped to Capello’s defence, saying England were lucky to have such a manager. Now, in what may be an even more powerful intervention, FA board member Phil Gartside has said that the FA have "got the best man for the job", in Capello.

As support grows it seems more and more likely Capello will be allowed to lead England to Euro 2012 in an attempt to redeem himself.
