Arsenal's Andrei Arshavin will stay shut out of the Russia team he used to captain unless he starts playing regular club football, Russia coach Fabio Capello suggested Friday.

Arshavin was dropped from the team for Russia's 2-0 win over Northern Ireland on Friday and was jeered when he came on from the bench in his last international appearance, a 1-1 friendly draw with the Ivory Coast last month.

"You need to play games," Capello said when asked whether Arshavin had an international future.

Arshavin has been out of the Arsenal first team for almost a year and a proposed transfer move to his old club Zenit St. Petersburg has yet to materialise.

Arshavin has scored 17 times in 74 games for Russia and last captained the team at Euro 2012 in June.

Israel are Russia's next opponents, hosting Capello's team Tuesday.
