North America to Hold the 2026 FIFA World Cup

Russia Opens International World Cup Police Center

But they will be aware that the Asian qualifiers look desperately ill-equipped to trouble Egypt or group favorites Uruguay, who meet tomorrow, and that there is still much to be done for the hosts to secure progress to the knockout stage.

Canada will officially co-host 2026 FIFA World Cup matches. "We saw that we are on the right track but we should forget this game and concentrate on the next one", Cherchesov said after ending a seven-game winless run in emphatic style.

A lack of an attacking threat in recent outings was a primary concern for Russian Federation going into a group campaign in which they will also face Egypt and Uruguay.

Substitute Denis Cheryshev scored two brilliant goals after Yury Gazinsky had headed the World Cup's first after 12 minutes.

Its been 1432 days since Germany lifted the FIFA World Cup in 2014, as the 21st edition of the FIFA World Cup kicks off in Russian Federation at the Luzhniki Stadium.

Artyom Dzyuba made an instant impact off the bench to make it 3-0 in the 71st with a header off Golovin's cross.

Both the United States and Canada failed to qualify for this year's World Cup.

However, the Saudis emerged victorious in their only previous meeting with Russian Federation, posting a 4-2 win in a 1993 friendly.

Cheryshev showed he can fill the void to a certain extent, and there is no better way to make an impression than by scoring a goal.

Perhaps the hosts aren't quite as bad as has been feared.

Although their World Cup record marks them out as one of the most consistent qualifiers from the Asian Football Confederation, the Saudis have not won a game at the finals since securing victories against Belgium and Morocco at United States of America '94 and had failed to score in five of their last six games at the tournament before this fixture in Moscow.

"There are so many unpredictable things in the World Cup".

Saudi Arabia will take the field on Thursday as lengthy +800 underdogs.

Saudi Arabia's route to the knockout round is much more hard.

England will play their first game on Monday against Tunisia.
