Saudi Arabia Royal Family launch scathing attack on players after Russian Federation loss

Russian Federation selected 11 host cities to be the venues for the matches of the 2018 World Cup and they are Moscow, St. Petersburg, Sochi, Kazan, Saransk, Kaliningrad, Volgograd, Rostov-on-Don, Nizhny Novgorod, Yekaterinburg and Samara.

Saudi Arabia fired Carlos Alberto Parreira after a 4-0 loss to hosts France in the group stages in 1998, even though four years earlier he had won the World Cup with his native Brazil.

It also helps if you are facing a team who have now lost eight and drawn two of their last 10 World Cup matches, whose defending fell painfully short of World Cup standard and whose attack was non-existent.

Putin and Infantino smiled and shrugged as they sat next to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in the VIP box.

Another substitute, Artem Dzyuba, made it 3-0 with about 20 minutes remaining, putting the game out of Saudi Arabia's reach. Golovin added the fifth from a superb 94th-minute free kick he curled around the wall and inside the near post. "Our opponents will be getting stronger by the match".

Russian Federation were without a win in more than eight months and ranked 70th in the world - the lowest of the 32 teams in the showpiece.

After nearly 18 months of an OPEC and non-OPEC deal to cut production, Saudi Arabia and Russian Federation have said they are prepared to pump more to calm consumer worries about supply and prices, which hit $80 a barrel, the highest since 2014.




Russian Federation have injury worries of their own as forward Alan Dzagoev limped off mid-way through the first half with what appeared a left hamstring injury.

Russia's bench players had their day of glory.

Provider Golovin, the youngest player in Russia's squad, turned poacher as he curled home a free-kick in injury time for Russia's coup de grace.

Raised in Spain, where his father Dmitry taught at Real Madrid's youth academy, Cheryshev showed his technical skills by beating the two Saudi defenders before his first goal. The CSKA Moscow player was forced off in the first half with a suspected torn hamstring.

"The opposing team really didn't have to make a huge effort to win this game", he said after a one-sided showing that marked a dream start for the home team in front of a capacity crowd.

Cherchesov didn't object but politely pointed out that "he probably overlooked how much more disciplined, compact and mature we played" compared to previous games.
