Russian Federation vs Saudi Arabia

The preparations of 2010 winners Spain were thrown into disarray after coach Julen Lopetegui was sacked just two days before their opening game on Friday against Portugal.

As for Saudi Arabia, coach Juan Antonio Pizzi has opted to select Mohammad Al-Sahlawi as the lone forward, with Muhannad Assiri having to make do with a place among the replacements.

In a World Cup first, the video assistant referee system was available for the match between the tournament's lowest-ranked teams, though it wasn't used for an official review.

"I can't describe how happy and positive I feel right now", said Yelena Krasnykh, a 21-year-old student. "It takes a long time for us to start driving but I think when we press the foot on the pedal, we go all the way", said Cherchesov.

The 2018 world Cup finally begins the countdown to its final part.

Gazinskiy's strike marked the first time that the opening goal of a World Cup tournament has been a header since 1990 (Francois Omam-Biyik for Cameroon v Argentina).

After a vibrant opening ceremony led by Robbie Williams had got the 78,011 crowd in attendance buzzing, the onus was on the players to deliver but from the off, it looked like only one team were up to the challenge.

Substitute Denis Cheryshev scored twice - the first after a piece of skill that would have graced a Lionel Messi highlights reel - and the second a superb shot in stoppage time.

"We have the best country in the world, I knew we would win".

A couple of minutes later, Golovin fired a sumptuous free-kick to the right post from just outside of the box to make it a overwhelming 5-0 victory.

Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia are the two lowest-ranked teams at the tournament by some distance.

"I could never have dreamed of anything like this".

His first goal against Saudi Arabia showcased his talent when fit, as he brilliantly lifted the ball past two closing defenders before rifling into the roof of the net.

Alan Dzagoev had been at the heart of things but had to go off after pulling a hamstring in the 23rd minute.

Denis Cheryshev came off the bench and scored the second goal before half-time, taking advantage of slack defending with Golovin's searching pass involved again to smash in at the near post from six yards. Russian Federation has spent more than $13 billion on preparations for the big event, and President Vladimir Putin called on the team to pull themselves together as they look to progress from a section also featuring Uruguay and Egypt.

But regardless of Saudi Arabia's woes, Russian Federation know that they can not be their own worst enemy. In such company the Russians, despite widespread criticism over poor results in the friendlies seriously counting on the playoffs - and therein lies another contradiction of the hosts of the world Cup.

The Green Falcons too are not in the best of forms but still looks much better when compared to their opponents Russian Federation. "As for our strategy, we must change", Pizzi closed.
