World Cup opening ceremony & Russian Federation vs Sauda Arabia

Egypt's coach said prolific striker Mohamed Salah is "almost 100 percent" to play in their opening match against Uruguay on Friday after having intensive treatment on the shoulder injury he suffered playing for Liverpool against Real Madrid in the Champions League final. Aleksandr Golovin's stoppage time free-kick to make it 5-0 was the icing on the cake for the Russians.

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. "Our opponents will be getting stronger by the match". "This has nothing to do with the World Cup", he told reporters.

With that in mind, we're bringing you every goal from this year's World Cup below, starting with Russian Federation vs. Saudi Arabia and ending on July 15 when a champion is presented the World Cup Trophy.

Russian Federation lost Dzagoev to a hamstring injury midway through the first half, the CSKA Moscow midfielder clutching his hamstring as he crumpled to the turf.

Time will tell whether Dzagoev can overcome his injury in order to play a further part at this World Cup, but the 27-year-old has a chequered fitness record in recent years, with a succession of muscular problems forcing him to miss countless games for club and country. The Saudis will face Uruguay on June 20 and then Egypt on June 25.

Cheryshev showed he can fill the void to a certain extent, and there is no better way to make an impression than by scoring a goal.

Still, there were some genuine positives for Russian Federation.

Hello, hello, four years of waiting is finally over and the much anticipated 2018 World Cup is here.

With some 200,000 visiting fans in the country to follow the 32 teams, Putin has urged Russians to put on a show and get behind the home team - a task not helped by poor form that makes them the tournament's weakest side by Federation Internationale de Football Association world ranking.

Saudi Arabia captain Osama Hawsawi was on his guard against Golovin - and Argentine referee Nestor Pitana didn't bother to consult the video assistant despite Golovin's penalty appeal.

Russian fans were less numerous than worldwide ones, but they were rooting for their team to pull off a triumphant start to the championship.

Just a week ago, Saudi Arabia lost by a respectable 2-1 scoreline to Germany in their final warm-up game in Leverkusen.
