Capello won't leave England job

Fabio Capello

England manager Fabio Capello has said he won't resign over his team's poor performance in the World Cup.

Lots of fans were very angry after England were knocked out 4-1 by Germany in their second round game on Sunday.

But Capello said he was staying put, and will meet the head of the FA to decide what will happen to him next.

He signed a contract just before the tournament, which tied him into the England job until the end of Euro 2012 in Poland and Ukraine.

And Capello said the referees made bigger mistakes than the team, by not allowing Frank Lampard's first-half goal.

He said: "We played well. Germany is a big team. We made some mistakes when they played on the counter-attack. The referee made bigger mistakes."

And Lampard agreed: "It was a clear goal - 40,000 knew it and I knew it, but there were two people that didn't. It certainly affected the game and we're bitterly disappointed."
