Russia are officially the lowest ranked team in the tournament but because they didn't have to qualify they have only played friendlies for the last two years which keeps their rating down.
Plus they've had 2 years to perfect their juicing program

The Russian team have collectively run further in their 2 matches than any other team in the competition has done in any other game. . .

If they were juiced, do you think they are the only ones on it?

That's not remotely the issue . . . they've run further than any other team in the competition by a good way and as Dinny says they probability is that other teams are juicing as well. Not that the World Cup needs to be any more farcical but this adds to it!

Ronaldo easily the greatest of all time. There can be no discussion on Ronaldo v Messi.
