Advocaat announces Russia squad

11 May 2012 16:28

Russia boss Dick Advocaat has named his provisional 26-man squad for the upcoming European Championships.

The squad features a number of names that were instrumental in Russia's run to the Euro 2008 semi-finals, such as Andrey Arshavin, Roman Shirokov, Yuri Zhirkov, Igor Semshov and Aleksander Anyukov.

But experienced midfield pair Diniyar Bilyaletdinov and Vladimir Bystrov have been left out of the squad.

Another surprise was Advocaat's selection of Sporting Lisbon's Marat Izmailov for the first time in his tenure, thanks to the 29-year-old's tremendous club form since his return from a persistent knee injury.

It will be Izmailov's first involvement with the Russia team since 2006.

Advocaat has already announced he will step down as Russia coach after the tournament.

Full Russia squad:

Goalkeepers: Igor Akinfeyev (CSKA Moscow), Vyacheslav Malafeyev (Zenit St Petersburg), Anton Shunin (Dynamo Moscow)

Defenders: Alexander Anyukov (Zenit St Petersburg), Alexei Berezutsky (CSKA Moscow), Vasily Berezutsky (CSKA Moscow), Sergei Ignashevich (CSKA Moscow), Roman Sharonov (Rubin Kazan), Roman Shishkin (Lokomotiv Moscow), Vladimir Granat (Dynamo Moscow)

Midfielders: Igor Denisov (Zenit St Petersburg), Roman Shirokov (Zenit St Petersburg), Konstantin Zyryanov (Zenit St Petersburg), Yuri Zhirkov (Anzhi Makhachkala), Alan Dzagoyev (CSKA Moscow), Igor Semshov (Dynamo Moscow), Denis Glushakov (Lokomotiv Moscow), Magomed Ozdoyev (Lokomotiv Moscow), Marat Izmailov (Sporting), Dmitry Kombarov (Spartak Moscow)

Forwards: Andrei Arshavin (Zenit St Petersburg), Alexander Kerzhakov (Zenit St Petersburg), Roman Pavlyuchenko (Lokomotiv Moscow), Artem Dzyuba (Spartak Moscow), Alexander Kokorin (Dynamo Moscow), Pavel Pogrebnyak (Fulham).
