MOSCOW, Jan. 24 (Xinhua) -- Fabio Capello has extended his contract as coach of Russia's national team till the end of 2018 World Cup, the country's soccer governing body confirmed Friday.

The 67-year-old Italian, former coach of England, took the position following the resignation of Dutchman Dick Advocaat, whose side suffered group-stage exit at Euro 2012.

Capello paced Russia into the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil and his previous deal was supposed to expire at the end of the tournament.

"I'm really happy to continue my work here in Russia. We have great plans for the future and I'll do my best to make Russia's fans happy," Capello said on the website of the Russia Football Association.

The 2018 World Cup will be held in Russia.
