Spain coach Luis Aragones believes his team will overcome in-form opponents Russia in Thursday night´s semi-final in Vienna.

The Spaniards beat Guus Hiddink´s team 4-1 in their opening match of Euro 2008, but the Russians have shown vast improvement since.

"Russia play an open game and perhaps it´s better for us," Aragones said, before admitting Russia had been a terrific team in the tournament. "The speed of their counter-attack is incredible and we need to stop that. Russia have proved to be the best national team in terms of physical form."
