Vladimir Putin speech motivated Russian Federation, says Cherchesov

The Caltex Socceroos arrive in Russian Federation today ahead of their fourth appearance at the FIFA Confederations Cup.

Russian Federation has the advantage over New Zealand in all aspect of the game from players, coaching and the home field. If the team can handle the pressure of hosting, it has the chance to start off on the right foot against the Oceania champions.

Over the past five years, there have been numerous incidents of racism during matches in Russian Federation.

The goal-line technology and the Video Assisted Referee, VAR, will be used during the Confederations Cup 2017 matches, according to FIFA's press service.

But it is also an opportunity for coach Stanislav Cherchesov and his side to show what they can do on the pitch, although they will face far greater tests in their next two outings than what New Zealand provided here.

"The objective for us was to come here and do something significant, do something that no other New Zealand team has done before and that hasn't changed", said Hudson.

"The first priority is to develop the team and the second to win the title".

"This is a young, exciting group of players and we're looking forward to a good campaign and everybody will be ready for it".

Midfielder Denis Glushakov flicked the ball over goalkeeper Stefan Marinovic in the 31st minute as New Zealand defenders rushed back to try to clear it off the line. "They could bring another three or four teams and it would be still the same".

Smolov had an effort ruled out for offside before the opening goal arrived just after the half-hour mark.

His squad for the Confederations Cup consists exclusively of Russia-based players, with Guilherme Marinato (a naturalised Brazilian) called up at the age of 31. "We could have been more aggressive".

"Absolutely. When you lose 2-0 there is going to be parts where you wanted to be more physical, done your jobs better and competed a bit more".

The European champions will open the Group A program on Sunday against Mexico in Kazan.

"He had no skills whatsoever, but worked hard and took the advice of his mother (Alan's ex wife Maureen) to graft, graft, graft".

The Russian team is playing its next match against Portugal at Spartak Arena in Moscow, while New Zealand is going to the Russian southern resort of Sochi, where they are scheduled to play Mexico at the Fisht Stadium.

Jam-packed with technically gifted players who are able to execute Low's attacking style with fearsome finesse, Die Mannschaft will go into the tournament as slight favourites despite bigger names being rested and keeper Manuel Neuer and attacker Mario Gotze injured.

"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".
