Capello approved as manager

LONDON: The Football Association (FA) approved the appointment of Fabio Capello as England’s new football coach on Thursday, pending final contract negotiations.

The 61-year-old will succeed Steve McClaren, who was sacked last month after England failed to qualify for Euro 2008, and become the second foreigner in the job following Swede Sven-Goran Eriksson (2001-06).
