EURO2008: Russia Defeats Sweden 2-0, Moves to Quarter Finals

Russia defeated Sweden in Innsbruck to gain a quarter-final meeting with the Netherlands in the last eight of Euro 2008. Andrei Arshavin, playing his first game of the tournament after suspension, inspired a superb attacking display. He was part of the attack as Aleksandr Anyukov set up Roman Pavlyuchenko for a close-range goal in the 24th minute. And Arshavin then started and finished a sweeping move to slide home Yuri Zhirkov's pass after 50 minutes of play. Videos of the goals below.
