Netherlands among big teams making a mess of Euro 2016 qualification

Turkey secured a vital three points as two first half goals paved the way in a 3-0 win over the Netherlands moving them into third in Group A.
The ESPN FC panel discuss Netherland's poor run in European Championship qualifying after their 3-0 defeat against Turkey.

The last time the European Championships were held in France was 1984, which coincidentally was also the last time the Netherlands failed to qualify. Back then, only eight teams made it through to the finals, and only the winners of each qualification group were deemed good enough, so it was a pretty tough selection process.

On that occasion the Dutch were battling Spain for the only place in their group, and the two sides went into their respective last games, both against Malta, level on points....

Leonid Slutsky's double duty for CSKA Moscow, Russia a true test of coaching

Leonid Slutsky has worked wonders with CSKA and will have the support of fans and media in his role as Russia coach.

Earlier this month, Russia replaced the most expensive national coach in football history with one who doesn't get any salary at all. How about that for a metamorphosis?

After Fabio Capello and his £6.8 million annual salary were belatedly relieved of the job that didn't suit him in the slightest, there was just one man seen to be capable of saving the country's Euro 2016 qualifying campaign. The problem was that CSKA Moscow coach Leonid Slutsky had been happy in his domestic job since 2009,...

Disastrous tenure in Russia a huge stain on Fabio Capello's resume

One of the most bizarre events of Fabio Capello's reign as Russia coach occurred in February 2014. A lot of eyebrows were raised when it was officially announced that Andrey Semyonov, a completely unknown youngster from the Lokomotiv Moscow reserve team, was included in the squad by the Italian ahead of a friendly against Armenia.

That seemed absurd, and it was indeed a mistake. It turned out that Capello wanted to call up another Andrey Semyonov, a defender for Terek Grozny, so anonymous that...

Fabio Capello's Russia are slowly improving but same problems remain

STOCKHOLM -- "When they play good, I am happy. When they make mistakes I am not happy," said Fabio Capello after Russia captured an important point in their 1-1 draw with Sweden on Thursday night.

However, his facial expression and body language, as usual, did not reveal much -- he didn't look either angry or overjoyed, but hesitant and indecisive. Which, if you think about it, actually describes his team's performance pretty well.

Their trip to Friends Arena was a first proper test for Fabio...

Artyom Dzyuba set to earn his first full Russian cap against idol Zlatan

Meet Artyom Dzyuba -- Russia's own Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

"Zlatan wants to get my shirt, and I want to get his," said Artyom Dzyuba through a smile a month ago after Russia thrashed Lichtenstein 4-0.

The Spartak Moscow striker entered the field at halftime, set up Alan Dzagoev for a move that ended in an own goal by Franz Burgmeier, got fouled in the box to win a penalty and finally scored his very first goal for the national team from Aleksandr Kokorin's assist. This was definitely his night, and he was making plans for the visit to Stockholm to meet...
