LONDON, July 2 (Xinhua) -- Fabio Capello will continue as the manager of the English football team, confirmed the Football Association on Friday.
The statement on the FA official website read: " This followed a meeting of the Club England Board (Sir Dave Richards, Alex Horne, Sir Trevor Brooking and Adrian Bevington) and formal approval by The FA main Board.
The Club England Board considered all aspects of England's performance and operations at the FIFA World Cup, and it was unanimously agreed that Fabio is the best man to continue managing the England team."
Capello's contract runs until Euro 2012, but the exit of the "three lions" from the last 16 at the ongoing South Africa World Cup made the Italian's position uncertain.
The 64-year-old Capello was told on Monday that he would learn his fate in two weeks, but got fully supports from the FA.
"I am more determined than ever to succeed with the England team," said Capello. "I can assure the fans I am now fully focused on our European qualifying fixtures, starting with the friendly against Hungary in August.
"We will look to introduce new players to give the team new energy and I will use all my experience to take England forward.
"I am extremely proud to be the England manager, it means so much to me and I am determined to succeed."
