    • 5' Godin and Lugano looking lively for Uruguay, but a decent challenge by Zhirkov to win the ball for Russia.
    • 4' Pogrebnyak heads on the long ball from Izmailov, but the visiting side quick to tidy up at the back.
    • 3' Malafeev gets at early touch of the ball before feeiling Izamailov. Russia looking the likelier side.

    • 17.42 Here is a look at the Euro 2012 fixtures. Remember Russia are in action on the opening day in a fornight's time when Dick Advocaat's open up against Czech Republic in Group A in Wroclaw on Friday, June 8.
    • 17.40 Odds ahead of this one: Russia 6/5, Uruguay 2/1, Draw 2/1
    • 17.35 Teams: Russia: Malafeyev, Aniukov, A Beretzutski, V Beretzutski, Zhirkov, Zyrianov, Denisov, Senshov, Kerzhakov, Arshavin, Pavlyuchenko////Uruguay: Muslera, M Pereira, Lugano, Godin, Caceres, A Pereira, Arevalo Rios, D Perez, E Cavani, Forlan, Suarez
    • 17.30 Uruguay strike stars Luis Suarez, Edinson Cavani and Diego Forlan will all start against the Russians after Oscar Tabarez named his first XI on Thursday. Tabarez has favoured experience for the money-spinning friendly, as Fernando Muslera starts in goal, with Diego Lugano preferred to Liverpool’s Sebastian Coates at centre-back. Maxi Pereira, Diego Godin, Martin Caceres, Diego Perez, Egidio Arevalo Rios and Alvaro Pereira make up the rest of the team.
    • 17.25 Russia will be without defender Roman Shishkin, who was sent home from training after losing weight during a bout of gastritis. Outgoing Dick Advocaat – who joins PSV after the finals – is also without stopper Vasily Berezutsky, who was ruled out earlier this week after failing to recover from a hip injury. This means Advocaat now only needs to drop one player from his 24-man squad for the finals. Lokomotiv Moscow midfielder Magomed Ozdoyev is expected to be the man who misses out.
