Fabio Capello's Russia eased to a morale-boosting 2-1 victory against Hungary in Budapest tonight. Defender Sergei Ignashevich put the visitors ahead early in the second-half with a header from a right-wing corner and Aleksandr Kerzhakov doubled the lead soon after with a smart finish from Alan Dzagoev's through-ball. Nemanja Nikolić pulled one back for Hungary in the 80th minute after being set free on the left of the penalty area by fellow substitute Tamás Priskin, but Pál Dárdai's team could not find an equaliser.

Fabio Capello is the man taking the blame in the Russian media today after Russia's 1-0 defeat in Vienna on Saturday. "Our decline continues. We were not able to beat Moldova, then suffered defeat by Austria, who forgot how to qualify for major tournaments a long time ago," says Sovetskiy Sport columnist Yuri Tsybanev.

"Capello's Farce in Vienna" is the headline of another sports daily, Sport-Express. "We saw another typical example of the Russian national team playing a capella," explains the article. "Not completely hopeless, with some sparks. But they still have problems scoring and can't keep their goal intact.

"They are still mediocre during set pieces both in 
defense and attack. They are still unable to exploit opponents' weaknesses and allow them to use their own. No will, no passion for creating a late storm and getting a much-needed equaliser."
