Russia's four World Cup players to watch: Golovin, Zobnin, Kuzyaev, Miranchuk

As the host nation, all eyes will be on Russia. The home side at the World Cup has never lost an opening match, so can Cherchesov's men keep the tradition going?

Martin Ainstein's tour of World Cup host cities continues in Kaliningrad, where he boards the B413 Russian submarine in the Baltic Sea.
Take a look at the main talking points from Moscow ahead of the Russia World Cup.

World Cup hosts Russia are approaching the tournament in the wake of some truly shambolic preparations.

Fans are pessimistic, and there is a fear that Stanislav Cherchesov's side will join South Africa and become the second World Cup hosts to fail to qualify from their group. Not everything is bleak though. While defence is their most problematic area, Cherchesov has numerous rising midfielders at his disposal.

Here are four youngsters who could save Russia this summer.

1. Liverpool cruise into the Round of 16

Spartak's Massimo Carrera: Everything I am is thanks to Antonio Conte

Massimo Carrera won the title at Spartak in his first year.

Massimo Carrera became manager of Spartak Moscow by chance. After serving as Antonio Conte's assistant at Juventus and Italy for five years, he was invited to the Moscow club to help out the defence. He accepted the challenge, but Spartak soon crashed out of the Europa League after losing to AEK Larnaca in the qualifiers and coach Dmitri Alenichev resigned. Only then, after the club failed to strike a deal with Kurban Berdyev, did president Leonid Fedun decide to give the Italian the chance.

Liverpool waste their chances in frustrating 1-1 draw at Spartak Moscow

MOSCOW -- Three thoughts on Liverpool's 1-1 draw at Spartak Moscow in Champions League Group E.

1. Liverpool held on frustrating night
