The opening match of the World Cup 2018 between the host country, Russia and Saudi Arabia ended 5-0.
The hosts won their first match in eight in fine style. The victory came with not too much effort.
Substitute Denis Cheryshev scored twice – the first after a piece of skill that would have graced a Lionel Messi highlights reel – and the second a superb shot in stoppage time on Thursday.
Yury Gazinsky had headed the World Cup’s first goal after 12 minutes, Artem Dzyuba got the third a minute after coming on as a 70th-minute substitute and Aleksandr Golovin completed a memorable day by smashing in free kick with the last action of the game.
