Alexander Kerzhakov has slammed the tactics of Russia manager Guus Hiddink.
The forward has been left fuming after being forced to watch all of Russia's 2-1 Euro 2008 qualifying defeat to Israel from the bench.
Kerzhakov believes Hiddink was wrong not to introduce him as Russia chased the game in Tel Aviv on Saturday.
And Kerzhakov feels that complacency will now cost Russia a place in next summer's Euro 2008 finals.
England - who looked all but out after losing away to Russia last month - now only need a point against Croatia at Wembley on Wednesday to eliminate Hiddink's side, much to the annoyance of Kerzhakov.
"He (Hiddink) is the boss," Kerzhakov said in The Sun. "But I cannot understand why I didn't play a single minute when we needed to score goals.
"I am gutted we went there complacent and thought everything was done and dusted. Israel played their game and stunned us.
"I am shattered. Nobody thought we could lose. We were all convinced of victory."
Meanwhile, Russian billionaire Leonid Fedun - who owns Spartak Moscow - has offered to donate four luxury cars to the Croatia goalkeeper and best three outfield players if they can beat England.
An England defeat would mean Russia would qualify if they win their final game against Andorra on Wednesday and Fedun is hoping to motivate Croatia.
"I'm doing this strictly as a fan," Fedun told The Sun. "If we have even have a small chance we must use it."
