    Watched a bit of a warm-up game recently with Saudis and they looked woeful in that one. Seems they maintained that into this opener.

    He ^ was possibly the worst performer to choose. But tis Russia we are talking of.

    The two worst teams at the tournament were always going to give us a terrible game. Russia weren't even good, the Saudis were just awful.

    Telling stats for the Saudis was their possession and distance traveled. So much ball, so little movement. Basically stood around and passed the ball while the Russians intercepted it once in a while and scored.

    The singer was performing his "Rock DJ" as part of the opening ceremony at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow before the opening game between Russia and Saudi Arabia when he gave the middle finger directly into the camera on live television.

    I had completely forgotten about Robbie Williams until yesterday, as I guess most of the world had, so smart way to get back in the headlines.

    Agreed. But Egypt and Uruguay are not that great either (despite Mo Salah and Suarez). It's an open group (rigged in favour of Russia?)

    They could not have gotten easier. Maybe some questionable refereeing to follow. Who knows.

    British pop star Robbie Williams caused a stir during his performance at the World Cup opening ceremony in Moscow on Thursday by making an obscene gesture to a camera.

    The former Take That frontman raised his middle finger at the end of his performance at the Luzhniki Stadium after appearing to mouth the words "I did this for free".

    Uruguay are a great international team, unless that has changed?
