The event, which is expected to be attended by every living England manager, will take place at the Connaught Rooms in Holborn. Capello, now the manager of Russia, has informed the FA he will be in attendance.

Capello resigned from his role as England boss under a cloud in February 2012 after a disagreement about the decision to strip John Terry of the captaincy for a second time and has not had any contact with the FA since.

As part of the celebrations two friendlies against Brazil have been arranged as well as meetings with Scotland and the Republic of Ireland. Matches with Germany and Argentina are expected to be scheduled later in the year.
