Given the events of Marseille, it wasn't unreasonable to think, three months ago, that English fans would be the target of organised attacks. It would seem, though, that Putin's put the word out that he'll personally take a very dim view of anything like that. That's one of the few good things about dictatorships; you can make things happen.

It was interesting to read of the friendliness shown to the Egyptian fans by ordinary Russian fans after the game last night. Imagine England under the same circumstances; all the jeering, mockery and crowing.

Yeah, but they let Adrian and the Chimp in, so that's a bad example :-)

The chimp went back home within 48 hours and before the tournament started yet having spent much of the time on the underground, in a museum and a pub for expats, thought he was an authority on the law and order situation, the vibe on the street and pretty much anything to do with St Petersburg and the World Cup.

At least the old spiv is telling them all to wind their necks in.
Not the usual grovelling apology and whinging about being misunderstood or taken out of context.

Ha. Did he take some good old British Yorkshire tea? Love a masala chai myself, though can know by similar in teabags and even in that Starbucks as chai tea latte.

1. Russia have played twice and Portugal just once.
2. Russia have won their first two group matches which has not been done since Germany in 2006.
3. Russia have scored eight goals and conceded just one in their first two matches which is the best opening record in WCF history.
4. Portugal have drawn their only match so far, regardless of the qualification.
5. Portugal are clearly a one man team whilst Russia have scored goals from different sources.
6. Russia were roundly ridiculed and written off by all and sundry and are a very low ranked side.
7. Arsene Wenger is to blame.

Sorry End-o, I'm not being awkward but feel I have strong grounds to counter your argument. Let's get some debate! :)

Russia haven't got Ronaldo.

In fairness, they used to advertise Tampax with a load of girls playing football on the beach, and that was about 20 years ago!
