Alexander Kerzhakov is confident Russia can beat England in their crucial Euro 2008 qualifier on Wednesday.
Russia lost 3-0 at Wembley last month but Kerzhakov insists the scoreline was flattering for England.
"I think the result of the first match was unfair. We didn't deserve such a big defeat," the Sevilla striker said in The Sun.
"We had many chances to score at Wembley, especially in the first half, but didn't take them.
"England are a very experienced and professional team who don't forgive such mistakes. We need to be better at taking our opportunities."
Kerzhakov believes there will be a different outcome when the sides meet again on the artificial pitch at Luzhniki Stadium.
Russia must avoid defeat to keep their hopes of qualifying alive, but Kerzhakov accepts that realistically it is a must-win match.
However, he feels Russia are at least equal to England and will prove unstoppable on home soil.
He said: "We want solid revenge. In front 70,000 Russian fans we can't lose.
"We are as good as them. We just need to be at our best and we will beat England.
"For me, it'll probably be the most important match of my career."
