A crucial Euro 2008 Group E clash as Israel host Russia, in a game all English fans will be keeping a close eye on. Click here for the latest odds!

Guus Hiddink has emphasised Russia’s determination to beat Israel on Saturday and secure qualification for Euro 2008.

Russia need to win their last two Group E matches to have a guaranteed place at next summer’s tournament but with a match to come over group minnows Andorra, victory over Israel would almost certainly mean Russia reach next year’s finals.

Hiddink said that while respects Israel he is confident his side will not slip up.

“We’ve seen Israel play a lot of matches,” he told Sport Expressen.

“I wouldn’t say their team has a pronounced leader but they are a very strong opponent that can upset the mood of any side.

“But our team is moving forward and is not prepared to be stopped halfway.

“We have made considerable progress, which is reflected in the Fifa rankings, but we still have a lot of work to do.”
