The eyes of the football world will be fixated on Russia this summer as 32 nations compete to be crowned the champions of the world.

Ahead of kick off on Thursday, when hosts Russia take on Saudi Arabia in the opening match in Moscow, The National's Extra Time podcast staged a special World Cup quiz episode. Listen below.

Two teams battled it out in the ultimate test of World Cup trivia - John McAuley and Jon Turner took on Adam Workman and Steve Luckings with a trophy - Leo the Lion Messi - on offer for the winners and a trip to Emirates Park Zoo planned for the losing team.
