CHRIS SUT­TON’S WORLD CUP BOOTROOM

Daily Mail - - Sports -

RUS­SIA kick-off their home World Cup still search­ing for their first win in 2018. They also start tour­na­ments slowly, win­ning just one of their last five ve open­ing matches. None of the pre­vi­ous 21 hosts have lost their first match, though, and I am not ex­pect­ing Rus­sia to buck that trend.

SUT­TON’S VER­DICT: Rus­sia to win 2-1.

Time to de­liver: Rus­sia striker Fe­dor Smolov
