 Both Rely on other nations to qualify for major tourneys.
 Both are populous nations you would expect to do well in football
 Both are serious underachievers for their size
 Both teams have pretty good attack but are below average after that
 Both teams missed the previous WC
 Both teams play dull unnattractive football
 Both teams will most likely not make it out of their respective continental groups.
 Both teams do not have a fantastic footballing history.
 At least Russia have a coach in Gus Hiddink that can help them improve.
 At least Russia are not braggarts like nigeria
Would you rather be Russian or English this morning?
On the issue of size, what is Benin's population again?
I would rather be the one that has actually won a number of tourney's as opposed to one that has little to nothing to show for it at senior level. How many trophies have the S.E won in their entire history?
Oh you find out Benin's population when they meet you on the field like I am sure you know Angola's population
