Russia capped a blowout win with two gorgeous goals

Peter Tatchell was detained near the statue of Marshal Zhukov in a public square which was busy with football fans ahead of the first game of the World Cup, while holding a poster attacking Russian president Vladimir Putin. Putin then reached over to shake the prince's hand.

Russian Federation then almost grabbed a third when Abdullah Al-Muaiouf spilled a low drive from Roman Zobnin, the Saudi goalkeeper recovering just time in time to nudge the ball away from Smolov.

And the Saudi goalkeeper was beaten again in the fourth minute of stoppage-time, Golovin adding to his two assists with a curling free-kick that left brought the home fans to their feet once again.

He said: "Unlike fearless Russian protesters, I have the "protection" of a British passport, which means I have been treated more leniently than they are". "I already felt very happy when I knew I could come here with my squad, but I never, ever dreamed of something like this".

Another substitute, Artem Dzyuba, made it 3-0 with about 20 minutes remaining, putting the game out of Saudi Arabia's reach.

Cheryshev and Golovin hit a further two in injury time, the latter from a free kick, to complete the visitors' misery. But high points for Russian athletes have been rare since the country's image was tarnished by doping, with numerous Olympic medals stripped for drug use.




The World Cup 2018 is finally here, and the month-long festival of football kicks off this afternoon after a performance from (and we had to double-check this) none other than footie-mad '90s pop icon Robbie Williams.

The Saudis, who last won a match at the World Cup in 1994, failed to get a single shot on target.

The preparations of 2010 winners Spain are in tatters after coach Julen Lopetegui was sacked just two days before their opening game on Friday against Portugal.

Salman Al Faraj headed a decent chance over the crossbar as Saudi Arabia sought a reply after the interval. And the Russian President's reaction to the goals galore was class apart.

Hosting the tournament successfully "will contribute on the margins to easing Russia's isolation from Europe", said Vladimir Frolov, a former Russian diplomat who's now a foreign policy analyst in Moscow.

About half an hour into the first half, Russia's scoring midfielder Alan Dzagoyev boosted off for an offensive rush on the goal of the opponents, but fell down, obviously pulling a muscle.
