US, Mexico and Canada to host 2026 World Cup finals

Gaze At This World Cup Venue’s Temp Stands Which Will 100% Kill Someone

Goals from Yury Gazinsky, Artem Dzyuba and Aleksandr Golovin helped them on their way, but the former Real Madrid man stole the limelight after coming on as a first half subsitute.

There will not be many occasions when Saudi Arabia's players have enjoyed 62 per cent of the possession on the home turf of a European opponent and yet for much of the first half, as the world watched Russian Federation kick-off its own tournament, the team in green had the ball.

Russian Federation looked more purposeful 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 left unmarked to nod home Golovin's deep left-wing cross.

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

The end result was a win beyond Russia's wildest dreams as the hosts claimed their biggest World Cup victory since defeating Hungary 6-0 in 1986.

But his replacement, former Real Madrid winger Cheryshev, celebrated his recent recall to the national side with Russia's second goal two minutes before half-time. Golovin added the fifth from a free kick.

In a departure from what has become the norm for opening ceremonies, this year's inauguration was shorter and less flamboyant than what many would have expected, lasting some 30 minutes and featuring British pop star Robbie Williams as the celebration's highlight.

The group stages will be 16 groups of three teams with the top two going through.

"Canada, Mexico, and the United States are ready to welcome the world to North America and serve as stewards of the largest FIFA World Cup in history".

Aside from wing-back Yasser Al Shahrani, who impressed down the left flank, Saudi Arabia offered little and did not even threaten a shot on target.

The other Group A teams Uruguay and Egypt meet Friday in Yekaterinburg.

Saudi Arabia sent some players to the Spanish league for experience this season but they didn't get much playing time while there.
