thumbnail Hello,

Humiliating defeat poses questions about Italian's future...

After England's spectacular exit from World Cup 2010 at the hands of Germany questions will now surround Fabio Capello's future as Three Lions manager.

The Italian signed a new deal just before the tournament in South Africa kicked off, committing himself to the job until 2012, but the manner in which the Three Lions were dumped out - a 4-1 thrashing - will inevitably point fingers at Capello.

Since the competition kicked off two weeks ago much has been made of his tactics and team selections, while injury robbed him of his two best centre-backs. The decision to play Emile Heskey didn't have the desired effect and the omission of Joe Cole left many England fans frustrated.

The former Real Madrid manager still has a formidable record as England boss - with a 67.9 per cent win record since taking over two years ago - but in the big games he couldn't deliver.

Capello has claimed he will not step down as manager but should the man - who delivered a near perfect qualifying record for the World Cup 2010 - be allowed more time or do the FA need to cut their, rather large, losses?

Goal.com wants to hear YOUR views. Should Capello be sacked after overseeing England's biggest ever World Cup defeat or does he deserve more time?
