Cherchesov wants new period of Russia success

The Confederations Cup kicked off on Saturday and will last through July 2 in the Russian cities of Kazan, Sochi, St. Petersburg and Moscow.

After the New Zealand "All Whites" had cleared off the line several times, the breakthrough for the hosts came on 31 minutes when midfielder Denis Glushakov raced through into the box and chipped the ball over Kiwi 'keeper Stefan Marinovic.

Group A, selected during the draw, features Russia, New Zealand, Portugal and Mexico, and Group B contains the 2017 African champions plus Chile, Australia and Germany. The tournament's final will be held in St. Petersburg, whereas the third place play-off will be held in Moscow.

This is the 10th confederations cup, and just like numerous previous tournaments, it is being held in the country that will host the World Cup the following year, Russia.

"The game didn't go how we wanted to go", New Zealand coach Anthony Hudson acknowledged.

Portugal and Mexico, who meet on Sunday, are the other two teams in Group A.

"I liked New Zealand's team but luckily we managed to cancel out their strengths and displayed ours, and that was the key to our win tonight", Cherchesov said.

Russian Federation deserved its first-half lead after twice having shots stopped on the line in the opening 10 minutes.

Cherchesov's men were too strong for a limited New Zealand side and were unlucky not to take an early lead, Viktor Vasin heading against the post from an Alexander Samedov corner, with Michael McGlinchey clearing off the line.

Ipswich's Tommy Smith was then on hand to keep Russian Federation at bay as the defender cleared Dmitry Poloz's effort.

In New Zealand, the match will be streamed on Sky Go NZ, and while the match isn't being shown online in Russian Federation, you can find viewing options for other countries by checking out LiveSoccerTV.

Ten minutes before kickoff, both teams lined up in front of the main stand to listen speeches by Putin and FIFA President Gianni Infantino. The president prefers ice hockey and saw a team that carried fervent hopes of an Olympic title lose on home ice in the quarterfinals at the 2014 Sochi Olympics.
