The former England manager Fabio Capello will be officially unveiled as Russia's coach later in the week according to the acting president of the Russian Football Union Nikita Simonyan.

Capello was attending Saturday's Russian Premier League match between CSKA Moscow and Rostov after arriving in Moscow on Friday.

The 66-year-old Italian, who quit as England boss in February, replaces Dutchman Dick Advocaat, whose tenure ended with Russia's group stage exit from Euro 2012.
