Arsenal's Rosicky identifies teammate Arshavin as Russia's main man

Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky has suggested that teammate Andrey Arshavin will be Russia's main attacker at Euro2012.

Czech Republic captain Rosicky is preparing for his country's group stage opener against Arshavin's Russia on Friday and admits he is slightly worried about his fellow Gunner despite him falling out of favour in North London last season.

"When you watch matches of the Russian team, Andrey is still the key player in the national team too; there's no doubt about it. Andrey is still a great player, and there's no doubt he will represent an enormous danger for us," Rosicky stated to Uefa.com.

"If you're talking about the favourites for the group, that would be Russia. They have a very experienced team and play good football, so we definitely have the most difficult match in the group up first.

"The group does appear very even, but Russia, thanks to the experience in their team, will certainly be tough opponents."
