Dick Advocaat: Russia coach confident of getting a win against Greece in Group A
Dick Advocaat is confident Russia can win their final Group A encounter against Greece, whose coach Fernando Santos retains full faith in his players.
Russia are favourites to claim top spot in the group after following up an opening game thrashing of the Czech Republic by drawing 1-1 with co-hosts Poland on Tuesday.
Greece also drew 1-1 with Poland before losing 2-1 to the Czechs to leave the 2004 champions needing a win to have any chance of reaching the knockout phase.
Russia coach Advocaat said: "Whenever you go and play a game, you have to win and you have to want to win.
"We are very confident in ourselves. I'm sure the Greece coach will say the same thing."
A draw would be enough for Russia to qualify for the quarter-finals, while even a narrow defeat could be sufficient depending on the outcome of the Czech Republic-Poland game.
