FA chiefs meet to consider Capello's successor

LONDON (AP) -- Harry Redknapp is back at Tottenham focusing on the club's Premier League title challenge as the English Football Association meets to consider making him the national team coach.

With the European Championship four months away, FA executives will create a shortlist of options if Redknapp cannot be lured away from White Hart Lane immediately as the replacement for Fabio Capello.

The Italian resigned Wednesday in a dispute with the FA, which stripped John Terry of the captaincy as he faces trial on racial abuse charges.

Redknapp was due to address the media on Friday to outline his England ambitions -- two days after being cleared of tax evasion charges that had threatened to derail his career.
