Russia midfielder Kokorin out of Euro 2012

BY foxsports • June 15, 2012

Russia coach Dick Advocaat says midfielder Aleksandr Kokorin has injured a hamstring and will miss the rest of the European Championship.

The 21-year-old Dynamo Moscow player picked up the injury in training Thursday and sat in a tracksuit watching the other players train on Friday.

Kokorin played for just six minutes at Euro 2012. He came on as a late substitute for Alan Dzagoev in Russia's 4-1 defeat of the Czech Republic in their opening Group A match in Wroclaw.

Advocaat also said that veteran midfielder Konstantin Zyryanov was unwell Friday. It was unclear if he would be fit for Saturday's decisive group match against Greece.
