Russia Beats Saudi Arabia in First Game of World Cup, Conor McGregor Appears in Court and Sports Betting is Now Legal in New Jersey
FIFA World Cup host Russia has claimed victory in the first game of the tournament over Saudi Arabia, scoring 5-0. This is not only the first win of World Cup 2018, but Russia's first win since 2002. FIFA.com quotes Saudi Arabia head coach Juan Antonio Pizzi's reaction to the loss:
"It was a tough game and we suffered a big and unexpected defeat. Russia did very well, while we did not appear to be in good shape. I don't believe that the opposing team has done anything to surprise us - I think that a poor performance explains the result. As for our strategy, we must change. We have to forget about it now and think of the next match. I have confidence in these players."
Russia will next play on Tuesday, June 19 against Egypt and Saudi Arabia's next match is against Uruguay on Wednesday, June 20.
UFC star Conor McGregor appeared in a Brooklyn court today to address charges against himself and co-defendant Cian Cowley for a violent incident the two were involved in on April 5 at the Barclays Center. The incident involved the two in a backstage melee following a press day for UFC 223. Video footage from the brawl showed McGregor throwing a dolly at a bus, which broke a window and injured some UFC fighters inside. McGregor's manager, Audia Attar, told MMA Fighting that future fighting plans are not currently under consideration and that the charges take precedence.
"Today we're here to focus on court, we're not going to focus on any future plans until we handle this matter," Attar said. "Right now we're in good negotiations with the district attorney, so we're going to focus on that and we'll focus on the future later."
NJ.com reports that New Jersey governor, Phil Murphy, has kicked off legal sports betting in the state by placing two $20 bets.
"I'm betting $20 on Germany to win the World Cup, and $20 on the New Jersey Devils to win Lord Stanley's cup," Murphy said before placing the bet at about 10:33 a.m.
This follows Delaware's legalization on June 5, with Gov. John Carney placing that state's first legal bet.
