Just thought I would start a thread for discussion of all the World Cup games live on TV to keep them all on one thread.

I'm sure the England games will get a thread of their own.

Russia take an early lead against Saudi Arabia in a lively opening game.

How come Russia aren't very good? Is it because they've fallen foul of importing a lot of foreign players?

Funny to hear one of the Saudi players is called Al Faraj. Nigel's little brother.

I think they said all the Russian players play in Russia which isn't the strongest league in the world.

Are there any World Cup games not live on TV?

Some of their clubs do well in UEFA comps though. But then if they're full of foreign mercenaries.

Good team goal that.

Oddly enough, they have a rule which limits the number of foreign players allowed in a team. They're just not very good without a state sponsored doping programme.

Russia will have the lowest ranking at the tournament due to their not playing any competitive games for a couple of years won't they? Obviously, home nations don't have to play any qualifying matches.

The fact that Saudi are ranked above them is obviously not correct in reality, as Saudi look like they would struggle against a Championship side, judging by this game.
