Mourinho was spotted watching Russia's final pre-World Cup friendly against Austria last month, with reports suggesting the Portuguese was scouting Aleksandr Golovin and not Marko Arnautovic, as was initially speculated.

'Several players will face a penalty - goalkeeper Abdullah Al-Mayouf, striker Mohammad Al-Sahlawi and defender Omar Hawsawi, ' he added.

Yuri Gazinskiy and Cheryshev struck first-half goals to open their global 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 Russian Federation.

Following a lavish opening ceremony featuring British singer Robbie Williams, Putin welcomed visiting fans and promised Russian Federation would be a "hospitable and friendly" host.




"The 2018 FIFA World Cup opening ceremony was a newsworthy event produced by a third party and carried live on Fox", a statement read, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Uruguay got 14 shot attempts overall, four of which were on target and it overcame 12 fouls in what was a physical match.

Al-Sheikh claims Saudi Arabia failed to meet their requirements "even by five per cent" following the heavy defeat. "And our opponents will be getting stronger by the match."Russia next play Egypt on June 19 in Saint Petersburg and finish off Group A against two-time World Cup winners Uruguay in Samara on June 25". The Saudis will face Uruguay on June 20 and then Egypt on June 25. The Saudis just can not defend attack plays from the wide areas.

Russia's bench players had their day of glory. "I trust in our plans and I trust in my players and I trust we'll have a better performance in our next game", he said at the post-match news conference.

Saudi coach Juan Antonio Pizzi: "We were not doing what we wanted to do". Some great teams are finding it hard to win.
