Saudi coach Juan Antonio Pizzi described the loss as a "feeling of shame" as Russia's victory at the Luzhniki Stadium was the biggest win for a host nation since 1934. "I want to go down in history in Brazil", the Manchester City player said during a press conference on Thursday after a training session in which coach Tite confirmed his starting 11.

Vladimir Putin craves sporting glory, and he got another taste of it in the opening match of the World Cup. "It was tough for them", said midfielder Carlos Sanchez of the Saudis' surprise 5-0 thrashing by hosts Russian Federation. "You know our warm feelings for you, but I hope you understand that I can not hope for success for your team today and may the best team win", Putin told Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

'We are very disappointed by the defeat. "You just rest well and prepare for the next game, we're fine", said Varela, whose team has travelled one of the furthest distances for the World Cup. In as much as I was surprised, I am glad that we've gotten off to a great start."In the second round of matches in Group A, Russian Federation will face Mohamed Salah's Egypt on June 19 in Saint Petersburg".

Cherchesov spoke of "a crescendo" as the matches become more hard, and warned that Egypt will not be easy in St Petersburg even if their Liverpool star forward Mohamed Salah is not fit to play after his Champions League final injury.

Today, teams are more organised and penetrating them through the middle is often hard. Cherchesov expressed fear he could miss the rest of the tournament.

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.

Head coach Juan Antonio Pizzi took over the national team in November previous year after the SFF sacked Edgardo Bauza, who had only been in charge for two months. We're talking about their looks!

"We haven't been kidding anybody", he said.
