The first game of the 2018 World Cup takes place later today and unfortunately it is probably not going to be a memorable one.
Russian Federation started on top in Moscow, but the goal came from the first effort on target of the match.
Number 70 Russian Federation and 67 Saudi Arabia kicked off the tournament as the lowest-ranked of all 32 teams after a short opening ceremony with Robbie Williams as headliner on an overcast evening.
"This great sports event is held in Russian Federation for the first time and we are genuinely happy about this", Putin said just before the game got underway.
In addition to installing toilet bowls and painting the prison bars, Navalny said cell blocks have been fitted with LCD screens for prisoners to watch World Cup matches.

The CSKA Moscow playmaker was fantastic through, laying on two assists with pinpoint crosses either side of half time.
Agapov said security staff had no problem with the flag but he did receive abuse from another spectator outside the stadium, who said "I don't want that kind of world".
Russian fans did not have a lot of faith in their team after meagre results but the Luzhniki erupted for the first time in the 12th when Gazinsky rose unmarked to head a long cross from the left by Golovin into the bottom left corner.
In the dying minutes of the match, Cheryshev struck his second before a stunner of a freekick from Aleksandr Golovin 25 yards away from the post to make it 5-0 for Russian Federation.

Saudi Arabia's route to the knockout round is much more hard.
Dzagoev was then replaced by Cheryshev as one of Russia's key players went down with what looked like a pretty serious hamstring injury.
Tatchell said he was required to appear in court on June 26, accused of breaking a federal law on the holding of public meetings and demonstrations, as well as a presidential decree that prohibits protests during the World Cup.
The fact that two of the world's best players, Portuguese centre-forward Cristiano Ronaldo and Argentine playmaker Lionel Messi have not yet won the cup for their respective countries - despite the duo dominating the handsome game virtually unopposed - has captured the minds of spectators from around the world.
That's right; while you would assume his World Cup duties with France are first and foremost in his mind, the Atletico Madrid striker made a big deal of releasing a big-budget, over-produced trailer about his club allegiances.
"We are focused on the opening game, that will set the tone for the other games".
