    Not the most inspiring first game in the world
    Russia vs Saudi Arabia

    The worst Russian team in a long long time will really want to win this game or realistically they go out at the group stages as Morocco and Uraguay are much tougher games.

    Saudi Arabia have always been one of the worst teams in the world cup and id be surprised if this year is any different.

    Hard to get excited over this game, but hard not to be excited as ITS MOTHERFUCKING WORLD CUP DAY!!

    Russia to win 2-1

    Dont care as long as those Saudis in their homelands go looking for the potential new moon that indicates Ramadan has finished. The sightings usually start after uk 4pm...but if they all decide to stay in to watch this pathetic game...no ones gonna be moon watching !!!

    Russsia 3 - 1

    Note in 1994 ... saudi arabia went to second round and during the group stages beat Belgium 1-0 after scoring one of the best goals in world cup history.  They also beat Morroco in the group stages that year.

    Yep. At least they're getting the worst two teams meeting each other out of the way straight away.

    I'm going to watch this, the Russians will be desperate for a big win. It'll end up in a big fight, everyone will get involved, soon people from the stands will invade the pitch and get involved. It'll end with Putin in the centre circle facing the Prince of Saudi, whatever his name is, who'll have a big scimitar in his hand and he'll be doing all sorts of swooshy-swashbuckling movements with it and Putin will just pull out a gun and shoot him dead. He'll gun him down to death, to death I say!

    Would love to watch but work day full of meetings and probably won't be able to get a stream up as a result. Glad I'm not missing anything special.

    Nope, I'm excited as fuck. Just not expecting much from this opening game.

    Just finished putting the obligatory world cup wallchart on the toy room wall too!

    I think this could set a record low for WC opening day viewing numbers.
