Everton midfielder Diniyar Bilyaletdinov is back in Russia preparing for the European Championship Group B game against Armenia on Saturday (Kick-Off 5.00pm).
A win in St Petersburg will take Russia top of the Group, but maybe only for a few hours. The Republic of Ireland - Seamus Coleman and all will join them at the top if they win against The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM to their mates). This game kicks off at 9.30pm.
Bily said: "
Armenia are a very mobile and well-organised team, they move fast from defence to attack and their counter-attacks are always dangerous. They're a technically-gifted team and not easy opponents. But we're playing at home, and we need three points."
