Russia has no major racism problem, says minister Vitaly Mutko

Manchester City manager, Manuel Pellegrini, blamed a lack of concentration for his side's 2-2 draw against CSKA Moscow in the UEFA Champions League.

MOSCOW -- Russia has no particular problem with racism in football as it prepares to host the 2018 World Cup -- despite a series of recent incidents, Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko said on Wednesday.

Russian champion CSKA Moscow have been forced to play all of their Champions League home group games this season behind closed doors as punishment for repeated racist incidents involving their fans, and there have been further cases in the Russian league.

"I don't see that we should especially stand out...

Russian official says coach Fabio Capello not paid since June

FIFA's marketing director Thierry Weil pleaded with the public and media to wait until the report into the World Cup 2018 and 2022 bidding process is published before accusing the governing body of a lack of transparency.

MOSCOW -- If Fabio Capello took over as coach of Russia's national team for the money, he came to the wrong place.

The veteran Italian coach, who led England at the 2010 World Cup and then took over Russia two years later, has not been paid since June.

And since that time, the national team have won only one of six competitive matches.

Russian sports minister Vitaly Mutko, who played a crucial role in attracting Capello in 2012, seems to think the team's struggles and the coach's missing pay cheques...

Moldova held Russia to a 1-1 draw by scoring a header just minutes after conceding to a penalty kick.

A late exchange of goals saw Russia and Moldova share the points from a 1-1 European Championship qualifying draw in Moscow.

Fabio Capello's side struggled to break plucky Moldova down for over an hour, until Artem Dzjuba was handed the chance to open the scoring from the penalty spot in the 72nd minute.

However, Alexandru Epureanu levelled with a header inside the next two minutes to earn Moldova a share of the spoils.

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

An early goal from Aleksandr Kokorin was not enough as Sweden equalised in the second half in a 1-1 draw.

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...
