EURO2008: Netherlands Left Behind By Russia 1-3

Russia's Andrei Arshavin was the initiator as they left Netherlands for the semi-finals of Euro 2008. Russia took the lead in the 56th minute when Roman Pavlyuchenko volleyed home, only for Ruud van Nistelrooy to head in an 86th-minute equalizer for Netherlands. But the brilliant Arshavin tormented Netherlands throughout and he crossed for Dmitri Torbinski to get a goal in. Arshavin then sealed Russia's bid for the semi-finals in the 116th minute as he ran through and fired low past Dutch keeper Edwin van der Sar. Videos of the goals below.

0-1 Roman Pavlyuchenko 56"

1-1 Ruud van Nistelrooy 86"

1-2 Dmitri Torbinski 112"
