2017 Confederations Cup: Hosts Russia defeat New Zealand in opening match





Russia kicked off their Confederations Cup campaign with a commanding 2-0 win over New Zealand in St Petersburg, in front of the watching President Vladimir Putin.

The hosts controlled the encounter with Fedor Smolov the star of the show.

Russia took the lead just after the half hour mark, through a Michael Boxall own goal.

Dennis Glushakov had rounded the keeper and looked set to score. But Boxall got in the way and the ball bounced off him into the net.

Smolov, who plays for Krasnodar, was a thorn in the New Zealand side throughout and got on the scoresheet to make it 2-0 and cap a fine performance.
