Russia captain slams Tottenham's Robinson and all "weak" English keepers

Russia captain skipper Andrei Arshavin has not just rubbished Tottenham goalkeeper Paul Robinson - but all English keepers!

Arshavin, 26, reckons Paul Robinson could have another shocker to gift Russia victory.

Arshavin is also not impressed with England's second-choice keepers - David James and Scott Carson - or any of England's stars when it comes to individual skill.

He rapped: "I believe they do not have normal keepers.

"Robinson, putting it mildly, is not the strongest representative of his profession - this is our chance!

"We will have to try and disturb Robinson.

"We are relying on a victory against the Englishmen and it is completely possible in this game. They have weak spots and if we use them we will definitely conquer.

"Once we're on the field we will forget they are superstars. As an attacker I'm more interested in finding the weak points in their defence.

"And in my opinion they have one of the best defences in Europe.

"To force it open will be complicated but individually the English appear, frankly, weak football players."
