Poland, Jun 13:  Andrei Arshavin has been a hit and a miss in Russia's two matches at the European Championship.

Russia captain set up Alan Dzagoev's goal in the 1-1 draw with Poland on Tuesday with a curling free kick, but he failed to make inroads in the second half when Russia looked to him to spark a recovery following Jakub Blaszczykowski's equalizer.

Playing wide on the left, Arshavin repeatedly ran into a wall of Poland defenders and couldn't seem to find his teammates.

On his official Twitter feed, Arshavin blamed fatigue, saying the match was “very exhausting.”
