    It would be easier on the commentator if he could use Al it would only leave him with about 3 names to remember.

    Al to Al, forward to Al. Outside then to Al. Doesn't help much.

    Arabic uses Al before names in order to define the tribe/group the individual might come from which is different to the Al used in things like Al Jazeera, in which case it means 'the'

    WC fact for Day 1

    1-0 Russia. The manager doesn't look particularly interested.

    Possible foul by the Russian goalscorer. VAR does nothing. Hmm...
    Edit: Just fell over, I think.
    Nice to see two dictators enjoying the game, though.

    Sounds like a crap game with the ball in the air all the time?

    It's a pretty decent game and it's mainly on the ground.
    Lots of wide play from Russia trying to stretch the Saudis, while they try to hit Russia on the break.
    A lot more entertaining than the usual dull, stifled opener, though the quality's a bit questionable.

    Two incidents for VAR and guess what happens. Nothing. Not even a referral

    Game seems to have lost something since Dzagoev had to go off.
    Not sure that the substitution's helped Russia's shape.
    Ramadan. Should end tonight, IIRC.
