Four! Quatro! Whatever 4 is in Russian! What a start to the tournament. All four teams that have played have scored, and the Russians have slammed home a quartet of goals and should have had more.
They'll be in pole position to win a group that contains the Poles, and yes, I am feeling a little smug tonight, having tipped the Russians to reach the semis.
I'm even liking the Russian strip, a thin blue and white sash on a striking red background. The More Sashes In Football Kits Campaign starts here.
