Putin opens World Cup 2018. Jokes around with Saudi Crown Prince after first goal (Video)

Yuri Gazinsky opened the scoring for Russia in the opening match of the World Cup

It took 11 minutes for Russia to score the first goal of the 2018 FIFA World Cup to be scored during Thursday’s opening match between Russia and Saudi Arabia.

The host nation got on the scoreboard early with a Yury Gazinsky header, for which the Saudi Arabian goalie simply couldn’t get to it despite a good effort.

It was Gazinsky’s first goal of his international career.

The goal is exactly the start that Russia needed to get the crowd into it at Luznhiki Stadium in Moscow.

Russian President Vladimir Putin opened up the match with a welcoming speech expressing Russia’s “love at first sight” relationship with the game of football.

Check out Vladimir Putin, sitting next to FIFA president Gianni Infantino and Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammad Bin Salman Al Saud, with a priceless expression after Russia scored the first goal.

We can only image what Putin is telling MBS after Gazinsky’s header.

Seriously proud of Robbie Williams. Understand that it should be a Russian act, opening the world cup. However, my Government has been diabolical to the people of Russia, and just glad that there is somebody from the UK, so honoured to be the opening act, and with him he brings the best wishes, respect, pride and love from the non-masses of the Uk. Saying thank you to the people of Russia and their contribution to world peace and the fight they have taken on with the Globalists. So much respect to you all and your Government. Robbie Williams, who released… Read more »
