Hiddink expects negative Greece

Published Add your comment

Greece have vowed to attack Russia in Salzburg but Russia coach Guus Hiddink is expecting a defensive approach from the European Championship holders.

Otto Rehhagel was criticised for fielding five defenders in the 2-0 defeat to Sweden and Greece have since promised flair, but Hiddink is expecting more negative tactics.

"They will play their own way and we have to deal with that," he said. "Normally they keep a lot of people in the defensive line and it´s difficult to break through that wall."
