Fabio Capello has left his role as Russia coach by mutual consent. The 69-year-old, who had been contracted until after the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, was appointed in 2012 but departs with his team third in UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying Group G, four points adrift of Sweden in second place following June's 1-0 home loss to leaders Austria. Capello's successor will begin with the 5 September visit of Sweden to Moscow.

Fabio Capello, Russia coach


In the first half, we were unable to play; we were under pressure and we could not cope with our opponents' good physical preparation. In the second half, we matched them on the pitch and had chances to score, but we had no luck.

Austria are a very good opponent, which their points tally and the fact they are group leaders shows. However, the only thing we lacked today was the goal we couldn't score. It's very difficult to play at a high speed when the teams in the Russian championship play at a lower speed. It's a habit: it's impossible to play in the Russian league at one pace and play much faster at European level.

I'm open to criticism when it's valid. It's part of my job. I understand that journalists have to write about me, but the main thing is that criticism needs to be constructive.
