Capello vetoes World Cup song

After kicking the WAGs to touch England manager Fabio Capello has now decided to do away with the official World Cup song for South Africa.

Despite rumours that Take That had been in contact with the FA over the possibility of penning a World Cup for next summer the Italian is said to have dismissed the idea as an unnecessary distraction.

"There were a lot of big names wanting to record a song. Very big names," an unnamed source told the News of the World. "But Fabio does not want anything that could possibly detract from the preparations - even in the slightest of ways."

If Capello does change his mind he might be able to get John Barnes to reprise his appearance in New Order's 'World in Motion' ahead of Italia 90 after he was given the heave-ho by Tranmere Rovers a few weeks back.
