Russia's newpapers were far from impressed with Sunday's 1-1 draw against Moldova in Moscow. "A modest team came and frankly showed us where we stand in this world," sighs Sovetski Sport. "It took about as long for us to build attacks as it took us to build communism in years gone by."
Contrasting the result with Thursday's 1-1 in Sweden, Sport-Express called it "another and yet very different draw about which there is nothing positive to be said". Sport Den za Dnem marked Fabio Capello's side's lack of concentration, Russia having conceded the equaliser within seconds of taking the lead. "An advantage gained grain by grain was squandered in a blink of an eye," it writes.
