The Birmingham striker, who returned to Britain from a spell with Lokomotiv Moscow in the summer, believes Russia´s choice of the Luzhniki Stadium as venue is "psychological warfare".
O´Connor said in his Sunday Telegraph column: "I´ve been a popular man this week: not only have Scotland taken a huge step towards qualifying for Euro 2008, but I´m pretty much the only British footballer to have had played on the plastic pitch that England will be playing on in Moscow. (Everyone has) been after me to find out what it´s like. And the answer isn´t good."
