Slaven Bilic’s Croatia have so far been the surprise package of this Euro 2008, and you’d fancy them to see off Turkey on that form today. Click here for the latest odds!

Holland coach Marco van Basten admits he is pleased to be facing Guus Hiddink in the the quarter-finals of Euro 2008, but he confirmed that is looking forward to knocking his fellow countryman out of the tournament.

The Holland boss will come face-to-face with Hiddink’s Russia side on Saturday in Basel.

Holland took maximum points from their group games, while Russia recovered from a 4-1 hammering by Spain in their opening match to book a place in the quarter-finals.

Van Basten has revealed his admiration for his Russian counterpart.

“I am really happy for Guus,” he said.

“After a difficult start to the tournament, Russia have started to play very well. They are an attack-minded team, with technically skilled players.

“(But) I think this group can handle that.”
