At 43 minitue of the match, Denis Cheryshev scored a lovely goal. When Golovin gets on the ball just outside the box, Chershev has hectares to his left. But the pass is short, so Cheryshev tips it up for himself, sending two defenders for a bag o' chips, takes another touch, and slams a rising drive into the roof at the near post.
Yury Gazinski scored the first goal.
At 11 miniute, Saudi had't got going yet, and Zobain, breaking at inside-right, slide a pass into the stride of Dzagoev. He gathered well but shot wide - via deflection, apparently, and that became be another corner.
At 12 minutes, the corner was cleared, but Zobain and Golovin made an angle for another cross, closed to the corner of the box. It picked out Yury Gazinski at the back post, and he shoved Taiseer before guiding a fine header into the far corner for his first international goal!
