Jonny Evans says Manchester United's international brigade always depart Old Trafford with a sense of calm.
The Northern Ireland defender will hope to put the block on Russia tonight in their World Cup qualifier.
And while the Group F encounter will take up all his focus, Evans feels United still play a vital role in helping him to perform to the maximum.
The 26-year-old has played 25 times for the Red Devils this term, despite Sir Alex Ferguson's strict rotation policy.
Evans feels he and the rest of his United colleagues join up with their respective nations with a real sense of perspective.
The central defender insists: "I think we've all now come to realise that the manager chops and changes his teams.
"I do think that takes away any animosity among the lads - if someone is taking your place at United, you understand the manager is doing it for the right reasons."
The ground staff at Windsor Park will be working furiously over the coming hours to clear the pitch of snow.
A decision will be taken closer to kick-off with FIFA planning for the game to take place 24 hours later if required.
Northern Ireland are 8.00 to win, 4.00 to draw and 1.53 to beat Russia on Today night.
