Federation Internationale de Football Association threaten pirate station broadcasting World Cup in Saudi Arabia

Vladimir Putin thanked FIFA for being

Denis Cheryshev came off the bench to score two wonderful goals, while young star Alexander Golovin also got on the score sheet with a nice free-kick.

Putin, grappling with Western sanctions since seizing Crimea from Ukraine four years ago, will attend an opening ceremony at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium ahead of the first match of the month-long festival, pitting the hosts against Saudi Arabia.

"If we are to talk big picture, then I say that women coming to Russian Federation to support the national team is another step toward equality", said Nada Altuwaijry, a British-educated media expert from Riyadh, who said she has been passionate about soccer since she was age 12. "I already felt very happy when I knew I could come here with my squad, but I never, ever dreamed of something like this".

The Saudis, who last won a match at the World Cup in 1994, failed to get a single shot on target.

Russia, placed in Group A, is playing its next Group stage match against Egypt on June 19 in St. Petersburg, while Saudi Arabia is facing Uruguay on June 20 in the city of Rostov-on-Don.

Federation Internationale de Football Association have developed closer relations with Saudi Arabia under Infantino and Saudi investors are reportedly included in a consortium interested in investing to revamp the club World Cup. "I believe in the players and I believe that we will perform better in the next match".

But Russia's win was all but sealed in the 71st minute with Golovin again the creator, the CSKA Moscow midfielder producing a lovely centre from the right that allowed Dzyuba to nod in within two minutes of his introduction.

The team had been trained so they could rise to the occasion, Ezzat said.

Russian Federation has left no stone unturned preparing for its most important event since the 1980 Moscow Summer Olympics, spending more than $13 billion on infrastructure in the 11 host cities.

On the day of the curtain raiser, Russian Federation freed the main opposition figure to Putin, Alexei Navalny, from jail after he served a 30-day sentence for organizing an illegal protest.

The money lavished on the tournament will boost Putin's already sky-high prestige at home by giving numerous 11 host cities their first facelifts in generations. Here are some apps that you may want to download, at least up until July (although some of them go beyond just the World Cup of course). "And also for Russian Federation because there is now an atmosphere around the team, there is now a little bit of trust in the players".
