Russian Dzagoev Injured In World Cup First Match

Russian star player, Alan Dzagoev, would probably miss the remaining group stage matches after going off the field with a hamstring injury just 24 minutes into the game.

Dzagoev went down after chasing the ball in the build-up of a counter attack.

He was listed alongside Golovin as one of the players who could determine how far Russia would go in the tournament.

The CSKA Moscow midfielder went down clutching his left leg. He was attended to by the medical team before being replaced by Denis Cheryshev.

The host nation went a goal ahead in the 12th minute when Zury Gazinsky headed home Aleksandr Golovin.
