Russia defender Sergei Ignashevich has claimed that the team will show fewer nerves when they face Belgium at the World Cup on Sunday.
The Russians head into the match on the back of a tentative 1-1 draw with South Korea in their opening fixture of the tournament.
However, Ignashevich has revealed that coach Fabio Capello is expecting a more composed performance against the Belgians tomorrow.
"Capello has been saying today that, now we have experienced the level of the World Cup, that nervousness we talked about should disappear," he told FIFA.com.
Ignashevich will earn his 100th cap for Russia if he is selected to face Belgium.
