Arsenal attacker Andrey Arshavin says Russia should be handed the 2018 World Cup instead of England.
The 29-year-old playmaker believes the lack of infrastructure in his homeland would be greatly improved should they be awarded the competition, while claiming England does not need to benefit from the showpiece spectacle.
A delegation from Fifa began their inspection of England's bid on Monday, visiting Downing Street and Wembley before embarking on a tour of potential World Cup stadia.
However, Arshavin insists Russian people love football as much as they do in England, and hopes his country's bid for the tournament is successful.
"You (England) should not have it," he said. "You have everything.
"If you say, 'Let's start the World Cup tomorrow', you have everything already. For us it's going to be much more. In general, in worldwide football it would be better.
"It will let us get infrastructure because at the moment it is not good enough for football.
"Our people love football and it will probably be the biggest event this century for our people."
With neighbours Ukraine co-hosting Euro 2012 in two years, Arshavin believes the time has come for his country to stage a World Cup.
He added: "Now we are jealous! It (Ukraine) was part of the USSR so we say, 'If they have (a major championship) why will we not have one?'
"Of course it means we want to have it more."
