Why is $\langle \psi| \sigma_z |\psi \rangle=\cos(\phi_1)\cos(\phi_2)$ for $|\psi\rangle=R_y(\phi_2)R_x(\phi_1)|0\rangle$?

I'm trying some example with the rotation gates and stuck here: $$\langle \psi| \sigma_z |\psi \rangle = \langle 0 | R_x(\phi_1)^\dagger R_y(\phi_2)^\dagger \sigma_z R_y(\phi_2) R_x(\phi_1) | 0 \...
