Unlike the first match of the day, which was played under a roof, Russia and the Czech Republic are playing in the rain in Wroclaw. Both teams can play on the ground, but have some physical players as well, and the weather doesn't necessarily benefit one team or another.
The biggest selection that either team has made is Russia's lineup move in goal. Igor Akinfeev, the Russia No. 1, was recently out for seven months with a knee injury and got fit just in time to make the squad. He's been in full training, but Dick Advocaat isn't taking any chances with his fitness and has gone with Vyacheslav Malafeev.
The Czech Republic have had a similar choice to make with Tomas Rosicky, who was questionable coming into the match, but Michel Bilak has opted to take his chances and play his hobbled captain in his familiar No. 10 role, behind Milan Baros.
