UEFA Euro 2008 Match of the Day Live - Spain v Russia
Tue 10 Jun, 4:45 pm - 7:00 pm 135mins
Gary Lineker hosts live coverage of Spain against Russia from Innsbruck, as Group D gets under way.
Perennial underachievers Spain are considered by many to be genuine contenders for the title, thanks to their youthful yet experienced squad of players. Fernando Torres scored 33 goals in his first season with Liverpool, as the club reached the Champions League semi-finals. Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas will captain Spain after his Madrid team mate Raul was omitted from the squad. He will be playing in his fourth major tournament despite being just 26 years old. Arsenal\'s Cesc Fabregas should also feature for Luis Aragone\'s side.
Guus Hiddink\'s Russia qualified for the finals at the expense of England but the 1960 winners have not progressed past the group stages since 1988. Their cause will not be helped by the absence of star playmaker Andrei Arshavin, who is suspended for the opening two matches. Their hopes may now rest with Roman Pavlyuchenko, who scored both goals against Steve McClaren\'s side in Moscow.
