Russia thoroughly whipped Saudi Arabia, 5-0, in the opening round of its home World Glass. Yuri Gazinsky scored on a header 12 minutes in, and subsequently Saudi Arabia could offer little opposition.

Russia's second, third and fourth objectives were all by substitutes: one by Artem Dzyuba and two by Denis Cheryshev. With time running out, Aleksandr Golovin got a fifth objective on a free kick, past a severely worn out Saudi safeguard.

Saudi Arabia, a group whose players are for all intents and purposes all situated in their dark home alliance, offered a demeanor of secret. However, that was previously the diversion. It turned out to be clear rapidly that they were no counterpart for a Russian group that itself has not been a world beater as of late.

Gazinsky's header thwarted the Saudi intend to work the counterattack, and the group only here and there kicked it into high gear the ball even profound into Russia's region after that. Russia itself assumed control over the counterattacking and found the objective at its kindness on numerous occasions.

Additional upsetting to Russia was obvious hamstring damage to midfielder Alan Dzagoev. In any case, that allowed the group to get Cheryshev, who appropriately scored minutes later.
Even at halftime, the Saudis looked broken, and it did not get better. Dzyuba scored on another header, likewise just after entering the game, then Cheryshev added his second in the 90th minute.
In the event that that late objective appeared to be out of line to the Saudis, it deteriorated a minute later when Goliovin included No. 5 on a free kick in damage time.

"I surmise that a poor execution clarifies the outcome," said Saudi Director Juan Antonio Pizzi, including, maybe superfluously, "With respect to our system, we should change."

It was the ideal begin for the host country, in spite of the fact that its outstanding gathering diversions, against Egypt and Uruguay, will be substantially sterner difficulties.

"Egypt will be an alternate amusement, city and stadium," said Director Stanislav Cherchesov. "We have to fastidiously set ourselves up."

With respect to Saudi Arabia, in the event that it oversees even a 2-0 misfortune, say, in its residual amusements, it will appear like a noteworthy achievement.
