  • The Saudi Football Federation has filed a formal complaint with FIFA over Qatar's beIN Sports

Saudi Arabia's next Group A encounter is against Uruguay in Rostov on June 20.

The host nation got on the score sheet in the 12th minute of the match with a Yury Gazinsky header.

Another substitute scored for Russian Federation, a clinical header from Artem Dzyuba, took the hosts to a 3-0 lead against Saudi Arabia in the 71st minute of the match.

After Russia scored the first goal of the tournament, cameras captured President Vladimir Putin shrugging and shaking hands with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

In order to give the event a competitive atmosphere, the General Sports Authority has provided competitions and games for children and special games for adults related to the World Cup.

Minutes earlier Van Marwijk denied that Leckie's attendance at the pre-match press conference meant his traditional captain, Mile Jedinak, would not be on his team sheet against France on Saturday. One of those cheering for Saudi Arabia was Mona Mohammad, a 35-year-old who works for an oil company and was pushing her baby in a pram decorated with Saudi flags.




Kahraba came on as a 63-minute substitute and injected zeal into a sluggish attack, although Egypt could not create genuine goal-scoring opportunities. Even if we lose, we will bring back to our country the political, economic and negotiating capital we have generated.

Alan Dzagoev's injury paved the way for the entry of Denis Cheryshev, who beat three defenders inside the box then fired from a tight angle to double the cushion shortly before halftime. The hat trick was his first ever at the World Cup and matched his goal production in his first 13 games over three World Cups.

Artem Dzuyba netted a third before terrific late efforts from Cheryshev and Aleksandr Golovin wrapped up Russia's first win since October to launch their Group A campaign in style.

Before the match kicked off, the stadium was graced with a short opening ceremony with England's Robbie Williams performing alongside young Russian artist Aida Garifullina.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was in Moscow to watch the game as part of his punditry role with Russian broadcaster RT.
