MOST COMMENTED

Russia, the beneficiary of England's collapse on the final day of qualifying for the 2008 European Championship, returned home to a muted reception.

Indeed, the small group of fans who greeted Dick Advocaat's players at Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport expressed their displeasure with their performance in a 1-0 win at tiny Andorra that was enough to see Russia through to the Euro '08 finals.

"It was a shameful display," Moscow mayor Yuri Luzhkov told reporters. "We must say thank you to Croatia for pulling us out of oblivion and giving us a ticket to the finals."

Luzkhov said his city government team could give the mostly amateur Andorrans a game.

"I would like to invite Andorra's national team to Moscow and play against our government team," he said. "I don't think the score would be any worse than it was on Wednesday night."
