Retiring Italy World Cup captain Fabio Cannavaro believes Fabio Capello will keep David Beckham involved with England.

Al Ahli signing Cannavaro ­believes ex-England skipper Beckham, the LA Galaxy midfielder, will stay part of the Three ­Lions set-up.

He told the Daily Star Sunday: "David said he'd never be England boss but he could be interested in a player-coach role.

"If he stays fit he has to go to Euro 2012 and I suspect it will be as a No.2 to Fabio."
