Arshavin says 'dark horse' tag fully deserved by Russia
London, June 8 (ANI): Russian captain Andrey Arshavin has said that his team absolutely deserves the 'dark horses' tag and claimed that he had no clue Russia can achieve at Euro 2012.
"Everyone knows what to expect from us. To put it simply, what lies in the Russian character. We can lose against every team and win against every team," The Sun quoted Arshavin, as saying.
As Russia is set to face the Czech Republic tonight, the former Russian Footballer of the Year, who was shipped out on loan to Zenit St Petersburg after losing his Gunners starting spot as Rosicky hit a rich vein of form, squares up with Arsenal pal Thomas Rosicky.
"We've joked about this with Tomas. I was saying on June 8, we'll both wear No 10 on our backs and exchange handshakes and so on," he said.
Russia were the surprise package of Euro 2008 and reached the semi-finals.
However, Arshavin warned about his side's capability and said that it's rather better to be under-estimated.
"I think it's better when you are not known. There is a certain under-estimation," he added. (ANI)
