Russia take on Northern Ireland on Friday 7th September, 2012, with kickoff at 16:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Sky Sports 1.

With Portugal also in the group the Russian side, who can be a bit unpredictable on occasion, will want to get the wins in their other group matches to ensure any aberrations against Ronaldo and co. don’t turn out to be that costly, and for Northern Ireland that can only make a tough trip worse. Travelling to play in Russia is never fun, but at least as the underdogs the Irish have nothing to lose.

That could play on the collective Russian mind, so the visitors will need to ensure they stay alert and take any opportunity that comes their way.
