2018 FIFA WC: Putin’s hilarious reaction takes the football fans on roll

Putin’s reaction takes the football fans on roll

XtraTime Web Desk: Hosts got a thumbing victory against Saudi Arabia in the opening match of 2018 FIFA World Cup. It was just 11 minutes when Russia scored their first goal as Yury Gazinsky’s header went to the back of the net. Arabian goalkeeper Abdullah Al-Mayouf’s effort went in vain as he dived to save the ball.

The goal is exactly the start that Russia needed to get the crowd into it, and Luznhiki Stadium is rocking now. You can’t ask for a better way to get the crowd excited in the inaugural match of the Cup.

Even Russian President Vladimir Putin, sitting next to FIFA president Gianni Infantino and Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammad Bin Salman Al Saud, found himself looking over like “hey, what can you do?”

As Russia looks to make its way out of group play, this is a fantastic start. It’ll look to duplicate this success for the rest of the match, and maybe the Russian team can even draw a smile out of its president at some point.
