Euro 2012

As we all know Russia got a virtual dream group (only Ireland would have made it better).

Very fortunate draw for Russia considering that the NT is really in a transition phase like 2004. Only eight years ago we got a deadly group.

Alright let's transfer the discussion to this thread. Notice how the prrevious one was "Road to the Euros", key word being road.

I think we'll see this tomorrow

Akinfeev
Anyukov
Berezutskiy
Ignashevitch
Zhirkov
Denisov
Shirokov
Zyryanov
Izmailov
Arshavin
Kerzhakov

It also looks as if Baros won't be in the starting line-up, but the key here is stopping service to Necid.

Just saw on twitter Baros given the OK.

Isn't Dzagoev starting for Izmailov?

I think if Izmailov is healthy that he'll start as Dzagoev looked poor against Italy.

Malafeev
Anyukov
Berezutskiy
Ignashevitch
Zhrikov
Denisov
Shirkov
Zyranov
Dzagoev
Arshavin
Kerzhakov

That's the line up for me.

I fancy Kerzhakov to be amongst the goals in a comfortable win. Russia to win by 2+ goals.

Never a good strategy:

Dick Advocaat: "We haven't decided if Akinfeev or Malafeev will be our Number 1. We'll chose on the eve of the match"

Good lineup dmitry....just if Pav is 100% fit he is better then Kerzh that is for sure.

I think we might trash the Czhechs today 3-0..cant really see what they can do..we have a superior team this season. After Spain we are imo the favorits..and maybe we are even better then spain. Lets see what happens

CSKA
Chamions League CHAMPIONS 2008

Better than Spain?

We'll need to finish today, the Czechs will be playing p=organized foot and it won't be easy to score on them.

Good counter attacking football, could have been 3-0. We look dreadfully out of position on crosses though.

good game overall russia,i like the defense in the second half arshavin dissapeear in the second half.

dzagoev mvp.

berezutsky and ignashevich good.

kerzhakov send him back to russia,pavluchenko to star against poland.

czech rep no defense,touch well the ball in the first half,rosicky still a good player.

akinfeev to start in my opinion.

Russian women

World volley champio
Vice olympic volley champion
World handball champion
European basket champion

I agree with this order.

Everytime Russia touched the ball later on it was picking Czech apart. Wow.
