The Russians should certainly be hoping to make it past the group stages this year with a fairly simple group consisting of Belgium, South Korea, and Algeria. Players like Yury Zhirkov and Alex Kerzhakov should make them a good team to watch as well so why not join in with the Russian support and head down to the Russian supporter's hub for the World Cup. Get involved with our continental cousins, flinging their plemenis and filling their fir hats with borshch; the Russians are bound to be one of the best crowds in this year's competition.

Open 24/7, the Rileys in Birmingham is the heart of beer-drinking, sport watching activity in the city. With a 3m HD TV and 19 other screens, it is impossible to miss any of this year's World Cup when you're here. As the Russian supporter's hub for the competition this summer, Rileys is going to be absolutely buzzing and it would be a shame to miss out.
