Arshavin under fire for Russia

Andrei Arshavin has come under fire from his fellow countrymen after a dismal performance in Russia's 0-0 draw in Armenia.

Arshavin has been criticised at club side Arsenal this season for his below-par form, but Russia's stalemate that leaves them level on points with the Republic of Ireland and Slovakia in Group B of the Euro 2012 qualifiers has seen more critics speak out against him.

"Arshavin's first half was just a catastrophe," former Soviet international Sergei Andreev said. "I feel he doesn't want to play football anymore. He was not even walking around the pitch, let alone running. He just stood in the middle, pointing his finger to [tell] others where to send the ball."

Another ex-international, Dmitri Kuznetsov, added: "I can only wonder why his team-mates watch all this but do not say anything. They have to play with only 10 men in the team. Arshavin's performance on Saturday was a parody of football."

Arshavin has won 58 caps for his country and is also the current captain of the Russian side.
