Preview – World Cup: Russia v Saudi Arabia

World Cup

After years of coverage and controversy, the World Cup finally begins in Russia this afternoon.

Beginning with the Opening Ceremony, the first actual match will see the host nation take on Saudi Arabia. If you are expecting something spectacular in this match you may want to move on, as these two countries are the lowest ranked sides in the tournament if FIFA’s ranking are anything to go by.

The World Cup opening ceremony is on ITV at 14.30, and Russia v Saudi Arabia kicks-off at 16.00.
