Russia Defeated Saudi Arabia 5 - 0 In World Cup Opener






Host of 2018 World Cup, Russia brushed Saudi Arabia at Luzhniki Stadium in a five star display.

A brace from Denis Cheryshev and Aleksandr Golovin starred as Russia kicked off their first home World Cup with a rampant 5-0 Group A win over a lacklustre Saudi Arabia side in Moscow.

Yuri Gazinskiy and Cheryshev struck first-half goals to open their international accounts at Luzhniki Stadium, Artem Dzyuba adding a third 89 seconds after his introduction as a second-half replacement, but an injury to star man Alan Dzagoev will cause concern for Russia.
