Russia coach Hiddink has no England regrets

Russia coach Guus Hiddink has no regrets missing out on the England job.

Ahead of tonight's crunch Euro2008 qualifier, Hiddink said: There was a slight approach but I was already in contact with the Russian federation.

"I hadn't signed a contract with them but I gave them my word and I always stick to my word. I don't regret it.

"My agent said there was a more firm contact from the Russian side.

"It was very honourable at that time to hear that but I had given my word to the Russian federation."
