Earlier, Acting head of the Russian Football Union's Refereeing and Inspection Department Akeskey Nikolaev said that the goal-line technology can be tested during the Russian Premier League which will take place before the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™.

"This is a very honourable role and a big responsibility, and we are confident that the forthcoming Tournament of Champions will be held in an atmosphere of celebration and hospitality towards all guests and teams of the Confederations Cup".

Germany is the top-ranked team in the eight-nation Confederations Cup, at No. 3, but it came to Russian Federation with a second-string squad that has only three players from the team that won the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Hosts Russia, New Zealand and Mexico will compete in Group A alongside Portugal, who will be led by reigning Federation Internationale de Football Association men's player of the year Cristiano Ronaldo. The Gold Cup victor plays Portugal on Sunday in Kazan. For the Confederations Cup, they will be making their first appearance, where they will be looking to impress in front of a home crowd and build on a successful campaign.

Castile's sister Allysza, weeping, said, "He didn't deserve to die the way he did, and I will never have faith in this system". In May, the Justice Department announced that it will not indict Baton Rouge officers in the shooting of Alton Sterling.


Based on Fare's "Global guide to discriminatory practices in football", the match observers will monitor the behaviour of fans from both teams, as well as any spectators who are not affiliated to a particular team playing in the match. Chile is ranked fourth, but lacks the same tradition as Portugal and Mexico and has struggled in South American qualifying.

Alongside Germany in Group B are 2017 Africa Cup of Nations winners Cameroon, reigning Copa America champions Chile and Asian Cup holders Australia.

Germany, who qualified for the eight-team event by winning the World Cup in 2014, have a 38 percent chance of winning the final in St. Petersburg on July 2, according to ESPN's Soccer Power Index (SPI). It is played by the continental champions plus the host nation and the World Cup victor. Anthony Hudson and the All Whites have been working hard in their preparations for the Confederations Cup and will look to cause an upset against Russian Federation. Coach Joachim Low defended his selections last week, saying that the focus remains on winning the World Cup next year and that players must have time to rest.

Ronaldo has scored 18 goals in his last 11 matches, including two in Portugal's 3-0 win at Latvia in a European World Cup qualifier last week, the team's last match before the Confederations Cup opener against Mexico.
