Northern Ireland played Russia for the first time in the 2014 World Cup qualifying series.

Notes:
The original All-Russian Football Union (VRS) was formed in 1912. The team evolved into the USSR (subsuming many other national sides along the way) until their dissolution in 1992. Thereafter, fifteen new teams (including Russia) were unleashed on world football as replacements. Russia were designated successors to the USSR and officially inherited their records.
