Fabio Capello's four years with England

On 14 December 2007, Fabio Capello was appointed manager of the England football squad. Over the last four years the Italian, who is due to step down from the job next summer, has seen numerous highs and lows.

The team secured qualification for the 2010 World Cup - but produced a disappointing performance in South Africa. John Terry was promoted, demoted and has since been promoted again to the England captaincy. And, as Euro 2012 approaches, younger players have been introduced to the team.

Here - in pictures and audio - are some of the key moments from the 65-year-old Italian's four-year stewardship of England.
