Russia's midfielder Denis Glushakov (C back) is congratulated after scoring the first goal of the match during the 2017 Confederations Cup group A football match between Russian Federation and New Zealand at the Krestovsky Stadium in Saint-Petersburg on June 17, 2017.

"It is a little hard for the players", Chile coach Juan Antonio Pizzi said.

Marinovic kept New Zealand in the game with a few saves but it was pretty evident that the Oceania champions were so rocked by Russia's furious opening that the goalkeeper and their defence only tried to find their towering talisman Wood via long balls.

"They gave me a fan-ID and then two hours (before the match) they cancelled it, apparently on objective so I don't have the time to complain". "It allowed us to play", Cherchesov said.

Russian Federation have implemented the special Fan ID, which allows visiting fans to enter the country without a visa and supporters to move freely between host cities for the duration of the tournament. In the event, however, a full package was awarded to a state-backed consortium, with free-to-air Channel One and Match TV to show every game live between them on television and RTR to provide radio coverage. "Even if the right decision was reached it has an impact on the players".

Fedor Smolov celebrates scoring Russia's second goal. Federation Internationale de Football Association later released still images of a razor-thin offside margin.

Meanwhile, with the support of a task force created by the local organising committee and headed by former Russian Federation worldwide Alexei Smertin, Fifa has instituted a new three-step anti-racism strategy during games at the Confederations Cup.

Count Chile's Vidal among the current skeptics.

The FIFA Confederations Cup is viewed by experts as a rehearsal for the organizers, with only one year to go to the FIFA World Cup.

It took about 30 seconds for the decision to be announced. Portugal had to wait for what seemed an unnecessary review of a good goal scored.

"It's the new rule, and if it brings benefits to football, that's fine", Portugal coach Fernando Santos said.

"We'll try to be better than this", Wood said after their easiest game on paper, with upcoming games against CONCACAF champions Mexico before a showdown with Portugal.
