Hiddink ponders Arshavin recall

Published Add your comment

Russia coach Guus Hiddink will make a late decision on whether to unleash Andrei Arshavin against Sweden and give the playmaker another opportunity to spark interest among Premier League clubs.

Arshavin, 27, has been linked with Manchester City and Newcastle after impressing against England last October and then in the UEFA Cup final when Zenit St Petersburg defeated Rangers.

After getting dismissed against Andorra in Russia´s final qualifier, Arshavin was suspended for the first two games of Euro 2008 and Hiddink must now decide whether he is ready for the final Group D game, with a win required to pip Sweden to a quarter-final place.
