The 2018 FIFA World Cup got off to a bang today as host nation Russia thumped opponents Saudi Arabia by 5 goals to nil.
The match which got off to a cracker after a brilliant opening ceremony didn’t take long to get football fans talking.
After the final score, Ghanaians couldn’t help but put the boot in especially since the Black Stars entirely did not qualify for the showpiece in the North of Europe.
We gathered some of the reactions to the scoreline below.

Ghanaians really asking how Saudi Arabia qualified for the #WorldCup
Well considering that they didn’t spend half of their country’s annual budget on bribing Referees and Officials, I’d suggest you keep shut.

And then there is the rest of the world going in………….
You can count on Saudi Arabia do two things:
1) Get wrecked in the #WorldCup
2) Do things that malign and embarrass the rest of the Muslim world

Safe to say most people think Ghana ‘deserved’ the spot than Saudi Arabia. But You’d have to be in it to win it.
