England manager Fabio Capello has pinpointed the end of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa as his retirement date, two years prior to the scheduled end of his contract with the Football Association.
"This is certain," he told Rome-based daily La Repubblica (www.repubblica.it) when asked if he no longer planned to coach after the World Cup.
The comment came after he ruled out a possible return to Italy as coach of the national team.
"My shift ends with England," he added. "My work on the field ends with the English experience."
He added that he would like to end his career by taking England to "among the top three in the world" in South Africa.
The 62-year-old, however, complained about the amount of talent at his disposal.
"I'm worse off than (Italy coach Marcello) Lippi," he said.
"In the Premier League only 35 percent of the players are English, while in Italy it is around 72 percent."
