Euro 2008 - Russia 4pts E/W (1,2) @ 33/1
Greece in Euro 2004 showed that a well organised, well managed team can succeed at Euro Football competitions, even without the most talented players. Russia (together with Crotia) eliminated Englad at the qualfying stage, showing that with manager Gus Hiddink they could potentially progress beyond the Group Stage - their Group (Group D) is one of the weaker groups. If they get to the last eight, a Euro 2008 final appearance is more than possible.
