Sven-Goran Eriksson is calling on the Football Association to keep faith with Steve McClaren - even if England fail to qualify for Euro 2008.

McClaren succeeded Eriksson as England coach after a number of years as his assistant, and the Manchester City manager believes his old team were unlucky to be beaten by Russia on Wednesday night.

"Of course, I hope he will keep his job," said the Swede. "I think England still have a possibility of qualifying - and I hope that they will. Steve is my friend; I´ve known him for many years and worked with him for five-and-a-half years and I feel sorry for him."
