Fabio Capello not set on Bafokeng for England's World Cup training camp just yet

By Rob Draper, Mail on Sunday Chief Football Writer

England insist they have yet to confirm the Royal Bafokeng Sports Complex in Rustenberg as their World Cup base.

Manager Fabio Capello wants to check on the progress of building work and the quality of the pitch when he flies out to South Africa next month for the draw.

However, the South African organising committee have no doubt Rustenberg is Capello's only choice.

'England have applied to use the Bafokeng Sports Complex and that is where they will be based,' said a committee member.

'We haven't been informed of any other plans.'
