Russia coach Guus Hiddink admits he is still "sick" from his side´s defeat at Israel on Saturday and concedes that his team now have only a slim chance of qualifying for Euro 2008.

Hiddink coughed and spluttered as he took his seat at Russia´s official press conference on Tuesday evening ahead of Wednesday night´s Group E clash against Andorra, and the former Holland coach admitted to also feeling metaphorically sick following his side´s last-gasp defeat in Israel at the weekend.

"As you can see I am still sick, not just physically but also figuratively," he said. "I am still sick from the last game, I have a little bit of a cold or flu, but that´s nothing. I am really sick from the defeat of the game against Israel, that´s much worse."
