Zenit St. Petersburg defender Evgeny Chernov is expecting Russia to get off to a winning start against Saudi Arabia tonight.
"I'll support our national team with all my soul. I wish them all the best. [I wish them] to reach the knockout stage for sure, and then we'll see. I expect nothing but victory in the game against Saudi Arabia," said Chernov.
"They should start the home tournament with a win."
