Russia has shown up to the World Cup guns blazing, win their first two games. Russia came into the World Cup as the lowest-ranked nation and in dismal form, but two games in they have won against Saudi Arabia 5-0 and a 3-1 victory against Egypt making it the best start of any host side in World Cup history.
Ahead of the World Cup, Russia played seven friendly matches without any win and were ranked 70th in the world by FIFA. Russian National team are practically guaranteed a place in the last 16, barring a series of unlikely high-scoring results, which would be the first time they have reached the knockout stages since the break-up of the Soviet Union.
The next game Russia will play will be against Uruguay on the 25th June 2018 at Cosmos Arena, Samara.
