Capello admits attempts to convince Man Utd ace Scholes to end retirement
The Italian has successfully coaxed Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher back into his provisional 30-man squad for the finals after he quit the national team in 2007, but he was unable to convince 35-year-old Manchester United midfielder Scholes, who retired after Euro 2004, to do likewise.
Asked if he had spoken to Scholes, Capello confirmed: "Yes, but it was up to him. He said no, he preferred to stay with the family. But I tried, yes."
