The Slovaks come into their second Group B encounter in need of a positive result after conceding late to lose 2-1 to Wales.
“That defeat was an unnecessary one. Welsh were not better, they just capitalised on our mistakes,” said Kozak.
“But there are defeats like that in football. We have to pick ourselves up fast. We have an experienced team and the players are aware they made some mistakes and that we now have a match against Russia where we can show how strong we are.”
