Russia v. SArabia . Pre match build up ... Putin to Assad ... I have helped your defence it is time for your defence to help me . A 4 - 0 or 5 - 0 will do but maybe we will let you have one . I fear that it will become the VAR Cup . Linesman told not to flag for close offside decisions , VAR to change referee decisions during the game whereas in the past "once the referee had restarted play a decision could not be overturned" . Might as play it as a computer game .
