RUSSIA GOT OFF to the perfect start in their World Cup opener against Saudi Arabia today.

After 12 minutes, CSKA Moscow’s Aleksandr Golovin crossed for Yury Gazinskiy — a defensive midfielder for FC Krasnodar — who produced a perfect header into the net beyond the reach of goalkeeper Abdullah Al Maiouf.

Russia were subsequently dealt a blow on 24 minutes, however, as Alan Dzagoev of CSKA Moscow went off with a hamstring injury and was replaced by Villarreal’s Denis Cheryshev.
