Host nation Russia trounced Saudi Arabia 5-0 in the opening match of the 2018 World Cup on Thursday. The match, held at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, featured an offensive onslaught by Russia, which scored its first goal in the 12th minute and never looked back. Russia is the lowest-ranked team in the 2018 World Cup, having failed to win their last seven friendly matches since last October, while Saudi Arabia last reached the global finals in 1994.
