Fabio Capello claims he would be fascinated by the chance to revive the ailing fortunes of the England national team.

Capello, who parted company with Real Madrid in the summer, was quick to signal that he would be interested in replacing the sacked Steve McClaren at the helm of England, who failed to qualify for Euro 2008.

The 61-year-old told national broadcaster Rai 2: "It would be a very interesting challenge and difficult challenges have always fascinated me."
