England face a battle to keep hold of coach Fabio Capello.

Capello has already been linked with a return to Juventus this week - and it's now emerged he's held talks with the Russian Football Union about succeeding Guus Hiddink after the World Cup.

Sovietsk Sport says Capello met with high-ranking Russian officials in London on February 27 to discuss the prospect of taking over the national team reigns after South Africa.
