The 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia got off to the flawless start for the hosts as the Russian national team cruised to a 5-0 victory over Saudi Arabia, using three goals from substitutes, including two from Denis Cheryshev. Then, just as the game was phutting to a conclusion, Cheryshev waved the outside of his right boot to conjure a fourth goal, and just before full-time, Golovin's glorious free-kick gave him the goal his performance deserved.

GOAL! 43rd minute: Substitute Denis Cheryshev gets his name on the scoring sheet doubling his teams lead. The hosts did lose Alan Dzagoev to a serious-looking injury, though.

However, Russia substitute Artem Dzyuba made it 3-0 to the hosts 20 minutes before time barely a minute after coming on with a fine header inside the box.

12th minute: Goal. Russia.

And then just as everyone was starting to make plans for the post-match party, Cheryshev popped up with his second moment of class - a attractive, dipping effort with the outside of his left foot from 20 yards out - and Golovin curled in a free-kick. Russian Federation have played miserably in the lead-up to the World Cup, but were excellent in the first half today, bright in attack and strong in winning the ball back.

Cheryshev completed his brace for Russian Federation in stoppage time with a superb volley with the outside of his left foot to make it 4-0. Russia, who have never made it to the knockout stage before, will make the most of a relatively weak Group A which also comprises of Egypt and Uruguay. AAARRRFGGGH! That'll be his match and tournament, I'm afraid.
