Host nation Russia will be hoping they can get through the group stage, as most countries hosting the tournament often get through to the knockout stages. But hopes are not very high for this Russian team, and without playing a competitive game in almost two years, many Russian fans will be hoping their team can make a flying start. Russia find themselves in a group with Egypt, Uruguay, and Saudi Arabia, and will have to get a good result against either Egypt of Uruguay to have any hope of getting through. They will rely on the goals from forwards Artem Dzyuba and Fyodor Smolov, and will hope legendary goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev can keep the ball out of their goal.
