You wanted a World Cup? You have got one in Russia 2018 where upsets, shocks and tears of joy have been in abundance as have goals and video decisions.

There’s no reason to expect any of that will change on Tuesday when we have the final opening games of the tournament in group H before the hosts continue their mission to Moscow.

The games start with the last of the Asian teams to get their World Cup under way. Japan face Colombia at the Mordovia Arena in Saransk, with Colombia expected to win according to the bookmakers.

Japan are paying $6 for the win in group H while Colombia are around $1.75, with the draw coming in at $3.5.

The game is live on both Viu TV (channel 99) and Now TV’s World Cup channels (618 and 619) from 8pm.

The final opening-round game sees Poland play Senegal in what looks a very open group. The teams face off in Moscow’s Spartak Stadium at 11pm with the Europeans favourites with the bookmakers at $2.35.

Senegal are at $3.5, so there’s not much in it, and the draw is at $3.

You can see that game on Now TV’s World Cup channels (618 and 619).

Hosts Russia kick off the second round of group games with an eye on another three points after hammering Saudi Arabia in the tournament opener.

It’s not going to be as easy, with Egypt needing to win and expected to play Mohamed Salah after the Liverpool man sat out their loss to Uruguay.

Russia are the favourites at $2.1, with the draw at $3.3. Egypt are $4 but those odds will surely change if and when Salah takes the field.

The game kicks off from Saint Petersburg at 2am and you can watch it play out on Now TV’s World Cup channels.
