GOAL! Russia 0-1 Slovakia (Weiss 32)

This is a wonderful goal! Hamsik, in the centre circle, played a fantastic 45-yard pass down the inside-left channel to Weiss, who was in far too much space. He sped into the box, came back inside on his right foot and curled it decisively into the far corner. The defending wasn’t great - Smolnikov and Berezutski went to put out the wrong fire when he came back inside - but it was a beautiful pass and an emphatic finish.

GOAL! Russia 0-2 Slovakia (Hamsik 45)
What a goal. A left-wing corner was played short to him, just inside the box. He moved past the covering defender - who again went to the wrong fire - and then, from a very tight angle, smashed a glorious curling shot that pinged in off the far post. That was a bit like Maniche in the Euro 2004 semi-final, though he was closer and the angle was tighter. It was, nonetheless, a belter, and celebrated in a majestically arrogant, Zlatanic manner.

GOAL! Russia 1-2 Slovakia (Glushakov 80)

Out of nothing, Russia score a wonderful goal. That was like watching the old USSR team. A slick one-two on the edge of the box, and then a lofted cutback from Shatov for the late-arriving Glushakov to plant an accomplished header into the far corner.
