Being the host of the tournament, Russia kicked off their campaign very well with a superb win, beating Saudi Arabia with a dominant 5-0 win at the Luzhniki Stadium. The Russian midfielder Yury Gazinsky opened and scored his first goal of the competition to give the team a lead in the 12th minute of action before Denis Cheryshev doubled the advantage heading into halftime. In the 71st minute, Artem Dzyuba scored a goal which made it to 3-0. In the 91st minute, Cheryshev bagged another one before Aleksandr Golovin closed out the game with a fifth goal. It was really an outstanding win for Stanislav Cherchesov’s team.
Without a doubt, Egypt will surely be looking to bounce back after a heartbreaking 0-1 loss over Uruguay. The Pharaohs kept the match close the entire time but Jose Maria Gimenez gave the Uruguayans the lead in the 89th minute, just one minute before injury time that resulted into defeat for the Egyptians. Liverpool star Mohamed Salah was not used during their first game due to his continues recovery. However, he is expected to start as the team needs valuable three points to stay in the tournament.
