    Utterly bizarre choice of Robbie Williams for the opening ceremony. Still got a great voice though. As for the main event, 3-1 to Russia.

    The boy doing the translation of Putin had an absolute stinker.

    The Russian anthem is properly stirring. Right up there with Les Marseillais.

    Didn't it used to be the cup holders first match? Certainly was in 1998

    Glad that the opening ceremony was quite short. Could do without the speeches from Putin etc. Robbie Williams...strange choice as well. Could have saved themselves a fortune and time by not doing an opening ceremony as it was rubbish.

    Get on with the fitba.

    There are two Russians in the starting line-up who aren't featured in the Panini album. Scandalous. Shouldn't be allowed.

    Russian goalkeeper sounds like a Glaswegian shoplifter.

    i believe Germany bucked that trend in 06 and basically said "our tournament, we play first" and its been like that ever since


    Hoping for a cracking opener. Won't hold my breath.

    I like that the ref is wearing a conventional black strip. He stands out clearly.

    Great header - Was it a foul? I thought the defender slipped but commentator saying a push?

    Was too old for the Panini stickers but remember the Texaco World Cup coins in 1970. Anyone else remember them? Good header by the Russian.
