Fabio Capello reportedly signs a new contract with the Russian national team.

Former England manager Fabio Capello has reportedly extended his time as head coach of the Russian national team.

The 67-year-old had been expected to agree fresh terms with Russia after replacing Dick Advocaat in July 2012.

It has now emerged that the Italian will remain in the role until after the 2018 World Cup, according to ITV Sport.

Capello, who was linked with the Tottenham Hotspur job following the dismissal of Andre Villas-Boas, guided Russia to the top of Group F in the World Cup qualifying rounds.
