Hiddink in upbeat mood

16 Nov 2007 - 12:37:36

Guus Hiddink has no doubts that his Russia side will beat Israel and win through to next summer's Euro 2008 finals.

Russia have moved into pole position to join Croatia in qualifying at England's expense in Group E, and Hiddink does not see Israel stopping their progress.

He said: "We've seen Israel play a lot of matches.

"I wouldn't say their team has a pronounced leader but they are a very strong opponent that can upset the mood of any side.

"But our team is moving forward and is not prepared to be stopped halfway.

"We have made considerable progress, which is reflected in the FIFA rankings, but we still have a lot of work to do."
