  • Gaze At This World Cup Venue’s Temp Stands Which Will 100% Kill Someone

Russian Federation opened their campaign in emphatic fashion, thrashing Saudi Arabia 5-0 in front of 78-thousand enraptured fans at Moscow's Luzhniki Arena.

Both will also be hoping for victory at the Luzhniki to end a barren run at the global finals: Russian Federation have not won at the World Cup since 2002, while Saudi Arabia's last global finals' victory came at US 1994.

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

Cheryshev hammered in a fourth with the outside of his left in stoppage time and Golovin capped a magnificent performance by bending in a last-gasp free-kick.

Cherchesov's team still has issues to address, with a distinct lack of pace likely to prove a problem against stronger opponents.

"They are caught between a rock and hard place in that case".

Every World Cup needs the host nation to energise the population, and Russian Federation have ticked that box with this result. Mexico last held the event in 1986, while the US held the World Cup in 1994.

Time limits for particular apps will also be available to users, and parents can set those time limits for their children. Apple Watch: Apple's wearable device will likely be getting an update come September, with a larger, edge-to-edge screen.

If the united North American bid is successful, it would be the first time Canada will partake in hosting the men's World Cup tournament.

Cheryshev showed he can fill the void to a certain extent, and there is no better way to make an impression than by scoring a goal.

Don't miss a moment of the World Cup!

2018 러시아 월드컵 드디어 막을 올린다 The wait is finally over for Football fans around the world.

Saudi Arabia's route to the knockout round is much more hard.

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. This new format was introduced so that more games could be played as a whole, but the winners would still be only playing seven games.

With their squad all based in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia's lack of exposure to games against the elite is another problem they have to overcome to have any hope of competing at this level in the future.
