Arshavin demands Russian victory in Dublin

ARSENAL star Andrei Arshavin says his Russian side must now come to Dublin and win next month following their shock Euro 2012 defeat to Slovakia in Moscow on Tuesday night.

Miroslav Stoch’s winning goal means Russia’s much-vaunted home record in Moscow is now in tatters and manager Dick Advocaat says his team now have “eight cup finals” left in the campaign, starting with that game in Ireland next month.

“I know our fans are disappointed today but I can tell them just one thing: we have two games left this year, away to Ireland and away to Macedonia, and if we win them both, which we must do, we can get back on track,” said Arshavin.
