NT Match of the Decade...Russia at England, Wembley

Our biggest test yet, we're going to England to play them in front of over 90,000 fans. A win is improbable but it would pretty much book us into Austria-Switzerland.

If any English fans can give us their projected line-up it would be appreciated.

As for Russia, maybe we'll go with this.

Malafeev
Anyukov-Berezutskiy-Igna-Berezutskiy
------------Zyranov-------------
Bystrov-------------------Zhirkov
-------------Arshavin-------------
Pavlyuchenko------------Kerzhakov

Maybe.


But unfortunatley Semshov is awful for the NT and Kolodin ain't too great eithter. But you might be right about putting more player in the midfield, England isn't skillful nor can they hold possession, if we overcrowd the midfield we might get a result out of this.

Heskey-Owen.

Heskey must be really lighting it up in the Premiership this year huh? The guy seriously has no skill or grace to his game at all. I'm surprised to see him back in the squad.

Realistic Russia have no chance,mother luck will have to be with you.....no class midfielders or defenders,the attack doesn't look bad but is not enough.

The best option is to beat England in luzhniki artificial field.

No class defenders? Ignashevitch is a class defender.

He provided what other skiillful/graceful players didnt offer. He is some sort of Post supporting Owen... as people say, finding the right balance. They might have it.

Eh, for years Heskey's been the joke of English footy fans, now all of a sudden he's great.

He got not much chance.. when Rooney gets fit... it seems.

But who knows, some people mature in the game really late. He had been better recently.


btw is Kerzhakov playing.. he is gooooooood.

Kerzhakov didn't start against Macedonia but he will against England I'm sure. Sytchev's finishing is too poor where as Kerzhakov is lethal when he gets the chance.

Only Spartak fans want Titov back in the squad. And remember when you wanted to replace Arshavin with him?

Anyway, About Smertin, I'd rather have him in there instead of Semshov or Kolodin as a DM anyday.

so basically the whole team is not good enough, thats why there are 1 point ahead of england...there's no point saying the team's going to lost even before hiddink has named the squad...

russia have a great chance and i'm backing the team all the way...england are an overrated team that has an incompetent coach whereas russia are an up-&-coming side that is coached by a great manager...

Titov is the best russian premier league player of this year.

Russia will need more a capello/lippi coach tactic then a hiddink one,the men will play open and will be trashed.
