Hosts Russia
would have surprised even themselves as they came out 5-0 winners in
the opening match of the 2018 FIFA World Cup against Saudi
Arabia.                                                                                                                                                                 Both sides started the game having the
inglorious reputration of being the lowest ranked sides at the Word
Cup and after 90 minutes, the Russians had proved themselves to be
the side that needed it more.                                                                                                                                                                                                          Yuri Gazinskiy rose
highest to head home a cross from Aleksandr Golovin and just before
half time, Denis Cheryshev who had earlier replaced injured Dzagoev
scored to make it 2-0.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Russia went on
rampage scoring three times in the final twenty minutes through Artem
Dzyuba in the 71st, Aleksandr Golovin in the 88th
and then Dennis Cheryshev again in the 90th minute to wrap
up a memorable day for the hosts.
