Vote for the Hottest Player in the 2018 World Cup Games

Danila Shostak  TASS

"We are very disappointed by the defeat", said Ezzat.

Ezzat admitted the performance in Moscow fell well below expectation and named three players facing a "penalty" for their poor performance.

Speaking as an analyst on SuperSport after the match, Okocha said: "Deservedly, they were beaten 5-0, I think they exposed the standard that they are playing at, the level of their league".

"Several players will face a penalty - goalkeeper Abdullah Al-Mayouf, striker Mohammad Al-Sahlawi and defender Omar Hawsawi".

Yet given Saudi Arabia's high turnover of coaches, including a previous mid-World Cup sacking, the Argentine-born Pizzi could well be on his way before he gets a chance to try and rectify the situation.

Turki bin Abdulmohsen Al-Sheikh, the chairman of the General Sport Authority in Saudi Arabia, called the game a "total fiasco" on his Twitter page.

'This is down to their weak potential and ability.

"We understand that this match has passed, that the emotions have faded", said Miranchuk, who plays for Russian champions Lokomotiv Moscow. "And our opponents will be getting stronger by the match."Russia next play Egypt on June 19 in Saint Petersburg and finish off Group A against two-time World Cup winners Uruguay in Samara on June 25".

"If we are to talk big picture, then I say that women coming to Russian Federation to support the national team is another step toward equality", said Nada Altuwaijry, a British-educated media expert from Riyadh, who said she has been passionate about soccer since she was age 12.

Things won't get any easier for them either, with games against Luis Suarez's Uruguay and Mohamed Salah's Egypt to follow. "We paid all their [the players'] dues, and they came to the game without exerting even five percent of the effort needed".
