Russia kicked off the 2017 Fifa Confederations Cup with a 2-0 victory over New Zealand on Saturday.
The hosts scored in each half with Denis Glushakov’s effort rather credited as an own goal from the New Zealand defender Michael Boxall becoming the first of the competition.
Fedor Smolov then wrapped up the victory on 69 minutes in the Group A game in Saint Petersburg.
