London:

Fabio Capello will miss his son's wedding in order to oversee England's friendly international with Spain, the Football Association confirmed on Wednesday.

Capello will be at Wembley on Saturday instead of attending his youngest son Pierfilippo's marriage in Milan, after the fixture was shifted from its original slot on a Friday night because of Barcelona's domestic schedule.

Pierfilippo was quoted by The Independent as saying he understood his father's absence.

"It is not a problem, absolutely not. He is a football manager first; he has been that ever since I was a child and sometimes being a football manager can make strange demands on your time. You just have to accept that," he said.

"We will all toast him sitting there on the bench at Wembley and look forward to him coming to join us for the celebrations after the games."
