Russia has broken the jinx of never winning a World Cup opening match with an astounding 5 – 0 win against Group A underdogs, Saudi Arabia.

It only took 12 minutes for Yuri Gazinskiy to open scoring via a Aleksandr Golovin cross.

Substitute Denis Cheryshev added a second just before halftime as he collected Roman Zobnin’s pass, cut inside two Saudi Arabia defenders and finished well.

Another substitute, Artem Dzyuba, grabbed Russia’s third within two minutes of coming on by heading in from Golovin’s delivery.

Cheryshev scored a spectacular fourth with the outside of his boot, before Golovin curled in a stunning 25-yard free-kick for Russia’s fifth.
