Harry Redknapp and Fabio Capello are on the 13 man shortlist for the Russia job.

Andy Carroll is considering a loan deal to AC Milan, after rumours he doesn't figure in new manager Brendan Rodgers plans.
He should take the advice of former Liverpool striker Ian Rush on his spell at Juventus in the 80s "It's like living in a foreign country!"
Carroll has told friends he will cut down on the drinking while in Italy.
Instead of 'just one beer', he'll have 'just one cornetto' instead.
