Davis in Northern Ireland squad
11:28am Tuesday 6th August 2013 in Football
The fixture was originally due to be played last March, but heavy snow and icy conditions in Belfast meant it was postponed.
Davis, who captains his country, will now line-up against the Russians on Wednesday, August 14.
There is no place in the squad for former Saints defender Chris Baird, who is still without a club following his release from Fulham.
With their three points, Northern Ireland are currently fifth of the six teams in Group F and a point behind fourth-placed Azerbaijan, who have played two more matches.
Russia are second on 12 points from five games, sandwiched between leaders Portugal (14 points from seven games) and third-placed Israel (11 points from six games).
