Capello, 65, will lead England at the finals in Poland and Ukraine before his contract as England's manager expires, having been at the helm since 2008.

It has been suggested the Italian will likely return to his homeland, but Capello is unsure what the future holds amid talk of a new management role or a career in the media.

Speaking at the Oscar del Calcio awards on Monday night, he said: "Before taking a decision we wait for the end of the European Championship. Then let's see if I go back to Italy, as a TV commentator or as a coach."

"I am well in England, I am fine, but the Italian anthem is always a strong emotion."

England, who are ranked fifth in FIFA's world rankings, have been drawn in Group D alongside France, Sweden and co-hosts Ukraine.
