LILLE • Fresh from holding England in Marseille in their Euro 2016 Group B opener, Russia face Slovakia in Lille today, knowing a win would all but secure progression to the last 16.
A victory at the Stade Pierre Mauroy, a day before England face Wales just along the road, would also pile pressure on Roy Hodgson's men.
With midfielder Denis Glushakov now fully fit, coach Leonid Slutsky has a full squad of outfield players to choose from.
And Artem Dzyuba - who was often left isolated against the English defence - hopes for a stronger attacking display this time around.
"Our defence was well organised but not everything worked in attack - we were a bit disjointed," Dzyuba told Uefa.com.
"A lot of balls got kicked out of play. But it was the first match and a difficult one. At times, we held on to the ball really well.
"I think if we add 20-30 per cent in attack, there will be more goals and we'll create more chances."
For Slovakia, there is even greater urgency in their search for a first European Championship Finals win after they conceded late on to lose 1-2 to Wales on Saturday.
Coach Jan Kozak will want more from his star creator, Napoli's Marek Hamsik, and has admitted that changes to his line-up are a certainty.
That means Ondrej Duda of Legia Warsaw, who came off the bench to score against Wales, could be promoted to the starting XI.
