    World Cup Opening, etc

    Saudi fans in Moscow, ahead of the first game, Saudia Arabia vs. Russia, today


    There was no lack of support for the homeboys either though lmao

    Russia is winning 3 - 0, btw, for once haha But, more on that game later.

    Other foreign fans



    and lots more here: "Much nicer than expected" lol

    Nursultan Nazarbayev, the dictator of neighbouring Kazakhstan, signs a football with Russian WC mascot Zabivaka, as he arrives in Moscow today to hang out with Putin for the festivities


    The Opening Ceremony, which looks like something out of North Korea, to me

    except for Robbie Williams, whom North Korea will never have haha


    and, yeah, he DID middle finger the camera, at one point: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95SfH8Qii6Q

    Continued in next post

    More of the Opening, Robbie Williams and Russian opera singer Aida Garifullina



    I just have to post a few pics of her, it would be a fucking crime and sin not to





    Tatar girls really are perhaps the most beautiful of all the ethnicities in Russia... No wonder they won Miss Russia three time in a row, before finally a Slavic girl this year lol

    Anyway, here a dad and child watching Artem Dzyuba, a famous Russian footballer, score the 3rd goal on the Saudis

    lmao Russians really are very passionate about the game. It is very frustrating to them that their team has rarely delivered much joy...

    Putin & Prince Salman watching the game together

    "So, you let my guys win this one, Salman, and I'll keep on going along with OPEC's oil price ups."
    "That's a deal, Vladimir."

    haha

    Russia's Yuri Gazinsky celebrates after scoring the 1st goal against the Saudis


    Anyway, yeah, Russia won 5 fucking 0: Russia thrash Saudi Arabia in World Cup 2018 opener - live reaction

    I'm thinking Putin & Salman really were making some sort of a deal up there in their VIP booth...

    It's a global sport, man. It is too bad your team ain't there.

    I bet Trump would have loved to attend and sit with Putin

    Pics like these are why I love the World Cup







    Apparently, it's the first time ever Saudi WOMEN are allowed to come to support their team. Great!

    Not many Americans really care about it.

    I just hope it's a peaceful Cup and not too many injuries or deaths.

    You think Americans will care and watch more when it comes to America in 2026?
