It didn’t take long for soccer fans to witness the first goal of the 2018 World Cup
Russia’s Yuri Gazinskiy wasted no time doing exactly that, as he found himself on the other end of a nice cross that was served into the box. There are FIFA 19 rumors that Gazinskiy may become a cover athlete for the game.
Saudi Arabia’s defending was horrible, and that allowed Gazinskiy to calmly head the ball home to give his team a 1-0 lead in the 12th minute.
It ended up being the first of many goals Russia would score on the day against the hapless Saudi Arabians.
