London, June 3(ANI): England manager Fabio Capello believes the contract to keep him until after Euro 2012 will be a failure if the Three Lions do not reach the World Cup final.

Capello held successful talks with Club England Chairman Sir Dave Richards to end weeks of speculation over his future.

They agreed to remove a clause in his contract, which said that his position could be reviewed by either side after the World Cup.

"To try to do something special is why I am here. The challenge is a big one, but that is what keeps you alive," The Sun quoted Capello, as saying.

The 63-year-old further reiterated his loyalty ahead of the crucial tournament, where England begin their bid against USA in Rustenburg on June 12, followed by matches against Algeria and Slovenia.

"Together with my staff we will do everything we can to achieve our goal. The players are excited and determined to play their part. The fans of England are the best in the world and we will be doing all we can do reward their loyalty," Capello said.

"I understand the pressure, the confidence of the country in this team and I am very focused. We have the players together as a group and it is like a club environment," he added. (ANI)
