Russia were beaten by Austria in a decisive clash of Group G. You can watch the goal here.

      Austria, leading the table, secured a crucial edge over other rivals, with Sweden held to a 1-1 tie by Montenegro.

      Russia now plunged to the third place, diminishing its chances to qualify for Euro 2016.

      The defeat complicated the situation around manager Fabio Capello who has still not received his pay. The delay has continued for 5 months now, and rumours are ripe that the Italian coach could leave the post soon.

      Earlier, Russia-IC reported that he could terminate his contract with the Russian Football Union over a pay delay, according to a source.

      According to the Twitter account of Sport Inside, Capello warned he might leave if the issue was not resolved by October 1. The deadline has been missed but he's still at the helm.

      Fabio Capello, who’s been working with the national team since July 26, 2012, is set to stay with Russia until the 2018 World Cup that the country will host. The national team manager has extended his contract with the Russian Football Union even before the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

      Earlier, Russia-IC reported that the head of the Russian Football Union, Nikolay Tolstykh, wanted to get the deal closed as soon as possible. Many commentators have challenged the move over Russia’s lackluster performance at the championship.

      Fabio Capello has now put together a new team ahead of the Euro 2016 qualifiers. The vast majority of pundits blamed him for dropping rising star Artiom Dzyuba, who finished the previous season as the top scorer of the Russian Premier League. Capello has lamented many times that good Russian forwards are few and far between but didn’t pick the Spartak player on his lineup.

      This time Dzyuba cannot be ignored. The aggressive forward scored 4 goals in three games for Spartak.

      The red-and-white’s goalkeeper also got a call to join the national team after a stunning save series in a derby against CSKA Moscow.
