Pat Nevin on Guus Hiddink v Luis Aragones
Russia coach Guus Hiddink (left) and Spain's Luis Aragones
This is the battle that will decide who will play in the Euro 2008 final on Sunday, this is the big one for me - the coaches.

I believe that at the moment Hiddink is the world's best manager. He makes teams extra special with belief, systems and fitness. He did it with South Korea and now with Russia - he's in a league of his own.

Aragones is a wily old chap and he's a very experienced coach, but I just fancy Hiddink - so strong tactically - to come out on top.

So even though Spain are the overwhelming favourites, it's Russia for me.
Have your say on 606

Pat Nevin was talking to Jonathan Stevenson
