Yuri Gazinskiy scored the opening goal of the World Cup to give hosts Russia a great start to the tournament.
With 12 minutes on the clock at Luzhniki Stadium, Gazinskiy placed a fine header home from Aleksandr Golovin's left-wing cross.

It was also a landmark moment for Gazinskiy as it was his first international goal for Russia.
