Romantsev prepared to resign
Russian coach Oleg Romantsev
Romantsev is under pressure to guide Russia through
Oleg Romantsev confirmed on Tuesday that he will quit as Russia's coach if his side fail to progress to the second round of the World Cup.

Romantsev said it was normal practice for the national coach to offer his resignation if the team did not survive the group stages.

"If the team does not qualify for the second stage then the coach has to quit," a smiling Romantsev told reporters ahead of Wednesday's opening game against Tunisia in Kobe.

Besides managing the national team, former international Romantsev is also president and coach of Spartak Moscow.

He played for Spartak in the late 1970s and early 80s and won 12 caps for his country.
