New Delhi: 14 June :-
The first match of the 21st edition of FIFA World Cup, the biggest football tournament tournament, will be played on Thursday in the Louunjin Stadium between hosts Russia and Saudi Arabia. In the FIFA rankings, the two teams present at the 70th and 67th positions are expected to be interesting. Both teams are not considered in the title to win the title, but Russia will want to start the tournament positively with the win in the presence of its supporters.
Russia’s performance in the last two years has been very bad. Since the 2016 European Championships, the hosts have played 19 matches and have won only six. The Russian team has not been able to win a single match since October 2017, which reflects the current situation of the team. Apart from Saudi Arabia, teams from Russia include Uruguay and Egypt teams. Of these, only Uruguay is considered to be a strong team. In this way, all other teams from the group have an equal chance to enter next round. No star players are present in the host team, and before the tournament, two of the strong defender Victor Vasine and Georgi Ziquia have been out of the tournament due to injury to Forward Alexander Cochranein.
Coach Cherchshov’s team’s biggest drawback is his defense and after Victor and Zakia injured, he has no name that can strengthen the defense. However, fans would expect better performance from goalkeeper Igor Ekinfiev. The team’s attack will be on Stryker Fedolsk Smolove, who scored the most goals in Russia’s first-class league in the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons, playing with Krasnodar FC.
