Football fans and media around the globe used social media to laugh along as the World Cup draw for Russia 2018 took place in Moscow
Football fans around the world might have stopped what they were doing to watch the World Cup draw in the Kremlin, but they certainly didn’t stop posting their reactions to social media as it went on.
Vladimir Putin opened proceedings, not as was noted, to universal acclaim in the hall.

This is pretty close to the weakest group that Russia could mathematically have drawn. They couldn't do much better if they'd tried to rig it. https://t.co/1mEG8kr69N
We thought City v Chelsea was the oil Derby up till now. Russia v Saudi Arabia at the World Cup is a whole different level of Oil Derby.
