Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has lauded midfielder, Aleksandr Golovin's performance for Russian Federation against Saudi Arabia on the opening day of the 2018 World Cup.

Ahead of the first game in the three-week long competition, between hosts Russian Federation and long shots Saudi Arabia, supporters who has traveled from the desert country to the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow said that politics should stay out of sports.

However, reports emerged that the former Stoke striker was not the one the Portuguese tactician had his eyes on - but rather watching Golovin. "You don't apologize for victory in sport". Artem Dzuyba netted a third before terrific late efforts from Cheryshev and Aleksandr Golovin wrapped up Russia's first win since October to launch their Group A campaign in style.

Russian fans were less numerous than global ones, but were rooting for their team to pull off a triumphant start to the championship.

Speaking on Twitter shortly after the game, Al-Sheikh felt the national team - who came second in AFC Group B qualifying, above Australia - fell well short of expectations.

Another said that the Saudi people "wished for relations between the two countries to be good and that they could live in peace and security, and that we could be brothers".
