Russia's national team coach Fabio Capello has been lambasted by the Italian press for the poor display of the players against minnows Moldova.

      Sovetsky Sport cites the newspaper Tuttocalcioestero that gives a detailed analysis of his blunders.

      Earlier, the Sports Minister promised to give a dressing down to Capello after 'an unconvincing game' in a draw against Moldova.

      Russia failed to get three points in the Euro 2016 qualifer, making it ever more difficult to secure a seat at the European championship.

      Artiom Dzyuba earned a penalty in a battle against defenders and opened the scoring in what appeared to be a bleak game.

      Moldova equalized a minute later, thanks to a header by Alexander Epuryanu, a former Anzhi Makhachkala player.

      Thirty thousand fans who came to cheer the national team at the newly-opened Otkritie Stadium have booed the players for the lackluster performance.

      Russia has only five points after three games now.

      A 1-1 draw at home against such a side is an abysmal result for Russia, who must be worried at the lack of progress made under Capello ahead of them hosting the 2018 World Cup,” it adds.

      Fabio Capello got a contract until 2018 when Russia is hosting the World Cup.
