England assistant boss Terry Venables has accused Russia coach Guus Hiddink of kidology ahead of their Euro2008 meeting and reminded the Dutchman of their Euro96 clash.
He wrote in The Sun: "Hiddink has already had plenty to say for himself, claiming England lack passion, are scared to play and won't qualify - then in the next breath he is telling us Russia are in transition.
"You also hear him moaning about having to play his third-choice goalkeeper.
"When you have coached at the level both he and I have, you know all the tricks and the mind games.
"I'm not buying any of it. I'm shutting my ears. It's all kidology."
"In Euro 96, Hiddink was Holland boss when I was England manager and we beat them 4-1 on a fantastic night at Wembley.
"There were things he did that night, albeit with a totally different set of players, which he might try again."
