I'm an optimistic pessimist. 

I'm positive things will go wrong.

Brazil got plenty of "help" last world cup, wouldn't be surprised if VAR is Russia's MVP.

Russia v Saudi Arabia really is an awful opening game for so many reasons. Is Salah going to be fit?

This game is a good example of why the FIFA rankings are meaningless.

No competitive games for Russia lately doesn't help.

Wouldn't mind that Russian striker playing for the Nix though. A couple of great finishes.

Oi Oi Edgecumbe... lets have a clean sheet

Fair play to the Russians, they did well and proved me wrong. Couple of very nice goals at the end.

There is no doubt that for the opening game, in their home country, the Russians got a lift but Saudi were very poor. I can see them getting steam rolled again by Uruguay.

And this is the team that qualified ahead of Australia.

Actually, getting outplayed quite a bit these days

Scoring goals has been a problem for Russia in previous tournaments, so that was a great start for them. 

Typically, the English media have been bagging Russia in the build-up to this, with the Independent printing yesterday: "expect Russia to impress no-one, entertain no-one and quite possibly beat no-one". Oops.

All those precious scousers who have a sudden interest in Egypt should thank that coach. Ramos may be a prick but he's an angel compared to Godin who would kill his own kids to save a goal

Trust me, you're missing nothing. Suarez not even trying, Ururgay a bunch of thugs as usual and Egypt happy to go home now with 0-0. These teams are a disgrace to football
