Capello to name England captain in August

Fabio Capello announced his plans to name his permanent England captain in August.

The Italian is expected to reveal his first choice skipper before England face the Czech Republic in a friendly on August 20.

So far Capello has tried out Steven Gerrard, Rio Ferdinand, John Terry, David Beckham and Gareth Barry as captains and has not yet reached his final decision.

He told Sky Sports: "I have more days more to think. I have two candidates to be captain.

"I think (I will decide) in August, 10 days before the start of the new season."
