Russia coach Fabio Capello has been impressed by Rudi Garcia's work at AS Roma.

Capello, himself, is a former Roma coach.

"Roma have had a competitive squad for the last three years, but, for one reason or another, they haven't been able to express themselves," he said.

"Coach Rudi Garcia, despite having a weaker squad on paper, has given the team some pride. They are now helping each other on the pitch."
