Federation Internationale de Football Association satisfied with attendance at Confederations Cup games in Russia

Football fans shone with excitement as the Russian team won the opening match of the Confederations Cup against New Zealand.

Russia, a record low 63rd in FIFA's world rankings, face Portugal on Wednesday while New Zealand play Mexico the same day.

Instead it was their Kiwi opponents who spent the large majority of the 90 minutes under the pump, Russian Federation scoring once in each half and creating numerous other opportunities as the All Whites were forced to continuously scramble in defence and survive on scraps in attack.

New Zealand nearly clawed themselves back in the game twice - first Ryan Thomas had a brilliant effort saved by Igor Akinfeev and then Tommy Smith had a powerful header cleared off the line by Yuri Zhirkov. Tommy Smith then tidied up when Poloz poked a close-range shot slowly past Marinovic.

After New Zealand lost possession in their own half, Poloz's neat touch set up Denis Glushakov, who dinked his effort over goalkeeper Stefan Marinovic and off the post before Boxall bundled the ball into his own net.

But the venue, which will also host the final on July 2, came through this opening test unscathed, even if there was a considerable number of empty seats.
