British gay rights campaigner briefly held in Moscow over protest

Denis Cheryshev, who came on as a substitute in the 24th minute, scored two great goals, including an absolutely handsome curling effort in stoppage time at the end of the second that is likely to be one of the goals of the tournament.

In stoppage time, Cheryshev chipped the ball in for Russia's fourth goal in stoppage time and Golovin scored from a free kick.

Russian Federation made light work of the fixture and the result was surely to their esteemed leader Vladimir Putin's taste as he called the head coach Stanislav Cherchesov midway through his post-match press conference to congratulate him on a super win.

Thousands of Russian and foreign fans had turned out to watch the World Cup opener in a Moscow fan zone.

Following his release a short time after his arrest, Mr Tatchell tweeted he had been, "charged with violating Federal Law 54 & Presidential Decree 202, which prohibit all protests near the Kremlin & during World Cup".

Number 70 Russian Federation and 67 Saudi Arabia kicked off the tournament as the lowest-ranked of all 32 teams after a short opening ceremony with Robbie Williams as headliner on an overcast evening.

However, what seemed to be a class apart at the stadium amid the huge roar from the Russian fans was President Vladimir Putin's reaction at each goal.

Although their opponents appeared to make a brighter start in Moscow, Yuri Gazinskiy headed home the first goal of the game (and tournament) after 12 minutes.

Jon Tester, a centrist Democrat running for re-election in Montana, a state easily won by Trump, led the charge against Jackson. Corker's bill would require congressional approval for any tariffs that are imposed for national security purposes.

'Football is truly loved here and it is called love at first sight, since our first official match here in 1897, ' Putin said moments before the tournament's first match.

It featured British singer-songwriter Robbie Williams performing some of his most successful singles including "Let Me Entertain You", "Feel" and "Angels".

Pat Janssen, CEO of Al Shabab: "Saudi Arabia could be the surprise package in the group".

Saudi Arabia recently lifted a ban on women driving, although that has been accompanied by a crackdown on dissent.

'I hope fans and teams enjoy their stay in Russian Federation, an open, hospitable and friendly country with people who have the shared values.

Coach Juan Antonio Pizzi does not speak any Arabic but it will not take long for them to become aware of his Spanish description of their performance as shameful.

Both teams are struggling for form too losing the majority of their World Cup Friendlies, but given both sides lack of quality, they could cancel each other out.

The preparations of 2010 winners Spain are in tatters after coach Julen Lopetegui was sacked just two days before their opening game on Friday against Portugal.
