Host nation Russia beat Saudi Arabia 5-0 in Moscow on Thursday in the first game of the 2018 World Cup.

President Putin oversaw an emphatic win for his country as they brushed aside the light challenge of their opposition, scoring some good goals in the process.

These were the best jokes from Russia 5-0 Saudi Arabia, as the two sides kick-off Group A and the competition this summer:
