Couple of very comfortable saves but Czechs rarely bothered him with serious efforts. Maybe too slow off the line for the goal but he made up for it with good save later on.
He failed to read the game well enough to prevent the opening goal for Czech team, yet won most of his duels.
Lost couple of headers as Czechs threatened early in the game but then kept his composure for the rest of the game.
Pilar went past him twice in the first half, yet as the game went on, he kept his marker under the radar and even was more willing to join in attacks.
Huge work from Zenit's midfielder, end to end performance, and capped with a great timed chip over Cech for the second goal.
Rarely moved forward but this was understandable as Arshavin tracking back was non-existent. Strong in every challenge.
Rarely looked bothered by the stake of the tournament and walked past much of the game, yet when he was given the ball, Czechs were in troubles.
He was very comfortable in the middle area, operating in uncovered space and putting the most passes right from all players.
Good, calm performance but he was largely anonymous in the attack, giving more safety to his defenders.
Tipped to be the star of the tournament, he rose to the expectations with a show of great skills and a great finish for the first goal. The second one was even better.
His fluent movement, constant search for a space was too much for Czech's center backs. But his finishing in the second half was dreadful as Russia desperately needed to finish the match off and was rightly subbed.
He could do nothing about the goals, just to look and stare at the mistakes his teammates are making over and over again.
Gave too much space to Kerzhakov and his general performance was very nervous, especially seen on his clearances and poor marking.
Even though he was the calmer center back for Czechs, he lost his feet couple of times as Russia passed dynamically around their defense. Pavlyuchenko toyed with him for the fourth goal.

The best defender on the night for Bilek's team, he was willing to go forward, but twice failed to stop Arshavin.
Dzagoev did with him whatever he wanted as also Kerzhakov's movement made his positioning look clueless.
Chaotic with his dribbling, he only succeeded in a few throughout the game but took his chance for the goal well and rose in the confidence in the second half.
Hold to the ball for too long and, despite his huge work rate, was easily dispossessed at times. In the second half, he was given more space to operate as Czechs gained the momentum.
Fantastic assist for Pilar's goal but his first half was rather uninspiring and he was at fault for the first goal.
He looked for space and passes for the whole game but he had to move back to be given the ball to his feet.
Impressive start from Anorthosis' winger, though after several glimpses of his class, he faded away and was subbed at half time.
He clearly was harmed by the injury that almost ruled him out of the match as Galatasaray's front man never looked dangerous and lost his battles with Russian defenders.
