Zyrianov targets revenge

22 Jun 2008 - 11:22:04

Russia midfielder Konstantin Zyrianov wants to play Spain in the semi-finals after starring in Saturday's success against Netherlands.

Russia progressed to the last four by beating the Dutch 3-1 after extra-time, and Zyryanov is now keen for revenge against a Spain side that beat Guus Hiddink's team 4-1 in the group stage.

"We have beaten two very strong teams, I think this improves our chances," he said.

"I want to play Spain in the semi-final. We made lots of mistakes against Spain (in the group match) and now we have fixed them very quickly."

Fellow midfielder Diniyar Bilyaletdinov added: "We are not scared of anyone.

"Guus Hiddink is our great coach. He knows how we must play.

"He knows about us technically, he knows about us physically, he knows what we must do. He is a top coach."
