Russia have often been a team that flatters to deceive and their campaign at Euro 2012 pretty much sums them up, they put up the performance of the first round by beating Czech Republic 4-1 and then still failed to even qualify for the knockout rounds.

Russia are clearly not a side to put full faith in and they are always going to appeal more as a team to trade rather than to bet on as what you see often isn't what you get.

Russia Recent European Championships Performances

Year Team Performance
2012 Eliminated Third In Group
2008 Eliminated In Semi Final
2004 Eliminated Bottom Of Group
2000 Did Not Qualify
1996 Eliminated Bottom Of Group

Russia's performance at Euro 2008 came a little out of the blue in comparision to previous attempts at the competition. From 1996 to 2004 Russia had either failed to qualify or on two occasions had come rock bottom in their group, yet in 2008 they went all the way to the semi final. They went to Euro 2008 with a pretty good team but the fact that they then didn't qualify for the World Cup two years later suggests that they were flattered by their showing in 2008 or that they massively overperformed and that is backed up by a group stage exit in 2012.
