Don Fabio is still auditioning for the role of captain of the England team as he prepares to announce his selection for only his second game in charge – next week’s friendly against Thierry Henry and co.
Steven Gerrard was given the armband in his first match but there are rumours that Capello agrees with most in that Gerrard is a different capatain at club level than he is with the Three Lions on his shirt.
The next contender will probably come from the defence – the manager is Italian after all – with either a return for John Terry or a test of Rio Ferdinand’s concentration skills. There’s also been unlikely claims that Gareth Barry could be given a chance – although that could be a statement of the end of England’s ‘star culture’.
Let us know who you think deserves the captaincy.
