Hiddink looking to the future

On their return to Moscow, a huge crowd was waiting for the Russian team that made the country proud of its football abilities and potential. No one would have imagined that Russia would be in the semi-final of Euro 2008. But Dutch headcoach Guus Hiddink continued to prove his coaching credentials by turning the team into challengers for the trophy.

After having missed the first two games due to suspension, Russian playmaker Andrei Arshavin was surely the best player for Russia, followed closely by Roman Pavlyuchenko. In an interview at the Moscow airport, Hiddink said that he is proud of the team’s performance, but wants to continue building and improving on their success.

“The aim was to get in the second round which was not easy. We played some good games and got to the semi-final and ended with a bronze medal.”

“We want to do better and better but the team is growing and we can be immensely proud.”Guus Hiddink
