Saudi Arabia poster put up by Muneer

"Hosting a FIFA World Cup is an extraordinary honor and privilege", said Steven Reed, President of Canada Soccer and Co-Chair of the United Bid, in a statement.

The FA had this to say; "We congratulate the USA, Canada and Mexico on winning the bid to host the 2026 Fifa World Cup".

Today marks the opening of Russia's first ever World Cup, against a team who have not competed at the tournament since 2006.

Three cities on the West Coast were chosen as potential host sites for the 2026 World Cup: Seattle, Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area.

James Wan Remaking Classic 90's Spider Flick ARACHNOPHOBIA
Ross Jennings ( Jeff Daniels ) has just moved in with his wife, Molly ( Harley Jane Kozak ), and young son. However, almost 30 years on, the film is the latest candidate for a big screen remake.

Russian Federation looked lively from the start as they poured into the vast spaces on both flanks and it was no surprise when they opened the scoring after 12 minutes as Gazinsky was totally unmarked to nod home Golovin's deep left-wing cross.

Russian Federation is grappling with Western sanctions imposed after its seizure of Crimea from Ukraine four years ago, but talking of a love of football uniting the planet "as one team", Putin said: "In this unity, over which no powers reign, in which there are no differences of language, of ideology or of faith, lies the great power of football, and of all sport".

Nintendo talks about Netflix on Switch, loot boxes and more
Even if games do support cross-play, like Rocket League , the PS4 is kept apart from the Switch and Xbox. This is not the first time Sony has refused to work with Microsoft and Nintendo to support cross-play.

Saudi Arabia were under increasing pressure and Smolov's deflected strike was clawed away by keeper Abdullah Al-Mayouf when play continued after an offside had been missed.

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.

Russian Federation could not have hand-picked a more beatable opponent than Saudi Arabia for their World Cup opener.

Federer Reveals Desire To Play Nadal In French Open Ahead Of Comeback
The Spaniard also won the title without losing a set, becoming the third man to do so in the Open era after Ilie Nastase and Borg. Rafael Nadal lifted the French Open trophy for an 11th time Sunday - and this time without the guidance of Uncle Toni.

With their squad all based in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia's lack of exposure to games against the elite is another problem they have to overcome to have any hope of competing at this level in the future.
