The time is ripe to present another slideshow of the Russian starting 11 for Euro 2012. The decision was made for another slideshow in spite of no definite announcement of a permanent squad from Russia for Euro 2012.
One of the reasons behind this latest news is the announcement of the election of Andrey Arshavin as team captain by coach Dick Advocaat. The news of Arshavin's election was reported in the Russia Today (RT) website.
The news came as a personal surprise since my prediction was for Igor Akinfeev as captain. The invitation is set, so sit back, relax and enjoy the slideshow of the 11 starting members of the Russian National Football team.
