Russian Federation blasts Saudi Arabia in opening match

Saudi Arabia are led by coach Juan Antonio Pizzi, yet he faces an nearly impossible challenge of piecing together a team ready for World Cup action as most of his players are based in a domestic league that lacks quality.

Confirming the names of the men, he said: "Several players will face a penalty - goalkeeper Abdullah Al-Mayouf, striker Mohammad Al-Sahlawi and defender Omar Hawsawi'".

It was the host nation's first World Cup win since 2002, and it raises the hope that Russian Federation can get past the group stage for the first time since the Soviet era.

And as a reply to all these accusations, the singer even added the line "I did this for free" to the lyrics just before making the gesture.

The opening ceremony included a mini-concert by British pop star Robbie Williams, who performed "Let Me Entertain You".

Midfielder Gazinsky gave his country the ideal start, arrowing a header into the bottom corner in the 12th minute with his first effort on target, and substitute Cherushev doubled the hosts' advantage just before the break.

Putin and Infantino smiled and shrugged as they sat next to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

But on Friday morning, the nation was in jovial mood with Sports.ru declaring the team 'played like Atletico Madrid'.

With 32 teams participating in the tournament, the viewers are sure to enjoy some of the most stunning matches of all time . Russian soprano Aida Garifullina , of the Vienna State Opera, will join Williams for his big set, as reported by FIFA.com .


While the mood is dark in the Saudi Arabia camp, it could not be brighter for the hosts.

Other, smaller, producers from China are also contributing to the World Cup.

But they will be aware that the Asian qualifiers look desperately ill-equipped to trouble Egypt or group favourites Uruguay, who meet tomorrow, and that there is still much to be done for the hosts to secure progress to the knockout stage. The Saudis face Uruguay on June 20 and Egypt on June 25.

Depending on which of the news outlets you enjoy reading or which do you trust for your news, majority have dedicated apps for sports and of course, their football section, particularly their World Cup coverage, is pretty extensive.

The only bad news was an injury to Alan Dzagoev in the first half.

"I trust my efforts, I trust my players and I fully trust that we'll have a better performance in the next game".

Coach Juan Antonio Pizzi does not speak any Arabic but it will not take long for them to become aware of his Spanish description of their performance as shameful.
