Russian Federation to win first World Cup match, says clairvoyant cat

Two men from Chechnya, a deeply conservative Muslim region of Russian Federation, told Reuters a year ago they had been detained by police and subjected to torture because they were gay. I felt very happy when I knew I would be here in the squad but I never dreamed of anything like this.

After an opening ceremony which included British pop icon Robbie Williams, it took just 12 minutes for the tournament's first goal, with Gazinsky opening his global account with a well-taken header across goal.

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.

Substitute Denis Cheryshev scored two brilliant goals after Yury Gazinsky had headed the World Cup's first after 12 minutes.

Villain Russian President Vladimir Putin opened the tournament by welcoming fans to "open, hospitable and friendly" Russia. This was in response to an invitation from President Vladimir Putin and as per the directive of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

After Cheryshev's first goal, Artyom Dzyuba made an instant impact off the bench to make it 3-0 in the 71st with a header from Golovin's cross. ITV's coverage kicked off at 2.30pm BST, but if you were busy at the time, you can always catch up through ITV Hub.

It is only the first game of the tournament, we will have 63 more games to get our teeth into over the course of the next month so it may not be memorable, but it is starting off the World Cup and that is only a good thing.

Before the match, pop star Robbie Williams performed "Let Me Entertain You" in an Opening Ceremony that involved 800 people and ramped up the atmosphere inside Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium.

Saudi Arabia's route to the knockout round is much more hard.

Russian authorities have insisted lesbian and gay fans should feel safe travelling to the country for the World Cup, but some LGBT supporters told AFP they had received violent threats ahead of the tournament. You can't ask for a better way to get the crowd excited in the inaugural match of the Cup.

"Uruguay have a big history, but Egypt and Saudi Arabia are strong as well", he added.

Casualty ward Alan Dzagoev has been Russia's most exciting creative force of the past decade, having become its youngest ever outfield player in 2008.
