"I watched Egypt's game against Uruguay. Both teams played very well. These are very powerful teams. I would like to note that they play at a high tempo. We have not discussed anything and we are more focused on our own game. We will do our best to win," Golovin said.

Russia thrashed Saudi Arabia 5-0 in the World Cup opening game at the 78,000-seater Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on Thursday.

The hosts will play their next game against Egypt, who lost 1-0 to Uruguay on Friday, in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday.
