Scholes is still Fab! Capello considering Euro 2012 move for veteran United midfielder
Paul Scholes could be in line for a sensational recall to the England squad after coming out of retirement to re-join Manchester United.
Fabio Capello is considering asking Scholes to end his international exile and join the Three Lions squad for the forthcoming European Championships.
The showpiece event in Poland and the Ukraine starts in June and with Scholes featuring regularly at the heart of the United midfield since his return, the Italian could be persuaded to make the call.
Red alert: Scholes has made a stunning return after retiring last summer
Capello attempted to pry Scholes out of retirement for the debacle that was the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
However he declined the offer as Capello failed to contact him personally, rather leaving it up to his No 2 Franco Baldini take make the call.
But Scholes could now be back in Capello’s plans as the England boss focuses on his final tournament in charge of the Three Lions, according to the People.
Capello has begun the process of injecting youth into the ageing England team with the likes of Jack Wilshere, Jack Rodwell, Jordan Henderson, Theo Walcott and Adam Johnson featuring regularly.
But Scholes could add vital experience in the cut-throat business of tournament football.
