FIFA World Cup kicks off in Russia

Julia Gonzales | 15 June, 2018, 01:04

Artem Dzuyba netted a third before late efforts from Denis Cheryshev (who scored twice) and Aleksandr Golovin wrapped up Russia's first win since October to launch their Group A campaign in style.

Warm-up losses to Italy, Germany and Peru have not made for the best preparations for the Saudis as they chase a first victory in the World Cup finals since 1994 in their first appearance in the showpiece event since 2006.

Russian Federation looked lively from the start as they poured into the vast spaces on both flanks and it was no surprise when they opened the scoring after 12 minutes as Gazinsky was totally unmarked to nod home Golovin's deep left-wing cross.

In addition to installing toilet bowls and painting the prison bars, Navalny said cell blocks have been fitted with LCD screens for prisoners to watch World Cup matches.

The 2018 World Cup kicked off on Thursday with Russian Federation beating Saudi Arabia, 5-0, in the opening match.

Dzagoev's replacement, Cheryshev, certainly stepped into the breach by scoring two goals after replacing the CSKA Moscow midfielder, including a stunner to make it 4-0, but the hosts can not afford to have their resources depleted even further by the loss of one of their best players.

The match took place in front of Russia President Vladimir Putin, FIFA President Gianni Infantino and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in the VIP box.

This is all set to the game's art style, which douses the action in a cel-shaded art style full of color, flair and intensity. You'll even be able to equip weapons from defeated enemies mid-match to adjust your combat strategy on the fly.

Russian Federation has left no stone unturned preparing for its most important event since the 1980 Moscow Summer Olympics, spending more than $13 billion (11 billion euros) on infrastructure in the 11 host cities.British pop star Robbie Williams performed at the opening ceremony at the Luzhniki.

Substitute Cheryshev chipped the ball over two Saudi defenders in the 43rd and then fired it high to goalkeeper Abdullah Al Muaiouf's right.

The forward was soon replaced by Dzyuba, who struck nearly immediately by heading another Golovin cross beyond a helpless Muaiouf in the 71st minute.

The Russian leader, greeted by huge cheers ahead of the hosts' opening game against Saudi Arabia, spoke of showing the world a hospitable Russia and of sport overcoming differences.

The World Cup got under way after British pop singer Robbie Williams took centre stage at the opening ceremony. But that's not the case with Russian Federation, whose two remaining games are against group favorites Uruguay and Egypt.

Pizzi was appointed to the job after Saudi Arabia qualified a year ago for the finals.

Having lost several key players to injury before the World Cup, the loss of Dzagoev to what appeared to be a hamstring pull halfway through the first half of the opening game was merely another setback for coach Cherchesov.
