Things couldn't have started much better for Wales, with goals from Aaron Ramsey and Neil Taylor putting them 2-0 up against Wales and on the brink of the last 16 of Euro 2016.
If Ramsey was a reasonably predictable name to see on the scoresheet, left-back Taylor was anything but - in fact it was his first international goal.
And some people may have gone a little bit over the top in marking the moment - not least whoever was operating the BBC Wales Twitter account.
It was, let's be honest, not the greatest goal you've ever seen - the ball ricocheted to Taylor off a Russia defender and he scored at the second attempt after his first effort was saved.
Last time Neil Taylor scored a goal was for Wrexham in the Conference Premier, over 6 years and 175 games ago. #RUSWAL

But it was typical of a totally dominant first-half performance from Wales in which they made Russia look third rate and probably should have scored more.
Russia are awful - let's clear about that - but Wales have been extremely impressive here. Bale superb, but they're far from a one-man team

Wales right now is just on something else

4 - #WAL have scored at least twice as many first half goals as any other team at Euro 2016. Cyflym.

Ha ha, and there must be gardens in Russia bigger than Wales.

And everyone was loving the Wales fans' singing too.
All in all, a pretty decent first half for Wales.
