Just after regaining the countries support, England's Fabio Capello had said he will definitely be quitting his England managerial role after Euro 2012.

After the last two qualifying games, he has got respect back from the nation, which he lost at this summer's World Cup.

The Italian will leave in two year's time, even if England become champions of Europe.

Capello's contract is worth £6 million per year, but not even the money can tempt him to stay.

He has said he wants to leave the sport so that he can enjoy life as a pensioner.

England begun their Euro 2012 qualifying campaign with two comfortable wins, beating Bulgaria 4-0 at Wembley and Switzerland 3-1 away in Basel.

He said, "It's a new start because when we finished the Germany game at the World Cup, the atmosphere wasn't good.

"We have created a new group with a new winning mentality and there is a new atmosphere.

"But my contract is not a problem, and, yes, I will leave. I will be too old. I want to enjoy my life as a pensioner."

He will want to finish his career on a high, and will be desperate not to lose any games. Losing against a team such as Montenegro will be humiliating.

Being the winning manager of an England team who win their first trophy since 1966 will put him in the history books.

The FA and many England fans have suggested that they would prefer an Englishman to be Capello's successor.
