2018 FIFA World Cup - Opening Ceremony & Match 1 - RUS v KSA Live Chat


Recommended Posts

5-0 now! Putin must be grinning with this game at Luzhniki Stadium. Golovin scores at 90+5 on a free kick. Not as bad as it was when Germany demolished the Saudis 7-1 in Sapporo, Japan inside the Sapporo Dome back in 2002. Still, that's a little embarassing.

Game over! Russia's happy!

Probably the most convincing argument against expansion of the tournament ever made - they actually qualified. It's always good for the tournament to have the host start well though - & Saudi are still higher ranked than Qatar :p

Russia trashing KSA shouldn't be surprising. What's surprising is KSA still qualifying and making these embarassments, given the Russian team is actually somewhat average. 

Also that opening ceremony was just a glorified Robbie Williams concert. As bad or worse than 2014 world cup. You can tell FIFA doesn't even let the host country have more creativity with their shows.

Sh!t! Kick-off already! I thought it was Friday night. Okay, give me about an hour to do the second chance sweep draw. Someone’s gonna start with an automatic win for Russia and loss for Arabia. Oh well, them’s the breaks of a sweep.

I think the South Africa 2010 had the best Opening & Closing Ceremonies of WC so far.  Of course, the Closing was at night, so that made it very dramatic.
