FA indicate they will stand by Capello

The FA have indicated they will stand by underfire England boss Fabio Capello.

Adrian Bevington, managing director of Club England, confirmed Capello will now hold talks with the FA.

He said: "Fabio wants to speak to the chairman, Sir Dave Richards, before he speaks publicly about things.

"Our position has been consistent and it has not changed in my mind tonight whatsoever.

"Clearly, Fabio needs to speak with Sir David and beyond that I cannot say anything further tonight.

"There is a board - Sir David, myself, Sir Trevor Brooking and chief executive Alex Horne - and we work into the main FA board as well.

"Nothing's changed in my mind from before the game."
