The Confederations Cup is a tradition that takes place one year before the World Cup in the country that is hosting the World Cup, allowing the champions from each continent to face off against the victor of the previous World Cup and the upcoming host country.

"FIFA President Infantino and Local Organizing Committee General Director [Alexei] Sorokin will fly to Kazan for the second Confederations Cup match", Mutko told delegates of the RFU conference.

As an independent nation, Russian Federation has never played New Zealand before and their first match will take place as the opener to the Confederations Cup.

Foreign fans coming to Russian Federation for the tournament are being allowed to enter the country without a visa and can stay for 10 days after the final on July 2, if they would like to tour host cities Moscow, St Petersburg, Sochi and Kazan.

Federation Internationale de Football Association secretary-general Fatma Samoura said that curbing problems now is "exactly the whole purpose" of anti-discrimination work at the World Cup rehearsal tournament.

In what was likely their best chance for a result in their group, world No 95 New Zealand were outclassed by the 63rd-ranked home team and spent nearly the entirety of the match at Krestovsky Stadium in St Petersburg on the back foot.

Hosts Russia eased to a 2-0 win over New Zealand on Saturday in the opening match of the Confederations Cup, a tournament seen as a test for the country before it stages next year's World Cup.

The Selecao were winners of the Confederations Cup in 2005, 2009 and 2013, when they hosted the tournament, but this is the first time Brazil have failed to qualify since the field was expanded to eight teams in 1997.

The hosts now take on Portugal on Thursday (AEST) after Fernando Santos's men have played Mexico in their Group A opener.

The Vatican said the talks centered on the need for the global community to combat poverty, hunger, terrorism and climate change. Kohl, whom Francis praised as "a great statesman and convinced European", died on June 16 at the age of 87.

Samoura said pre-match announcements in the four Confederations Cup stadiums can start a process that ultimately allows referees to abandon games.

Germany face Copa America title-holders Chile, 2015 Asian Cup champions Australia, and this year's Africa Cup of Nations winners Cameroon in Group B. But after their impressive run of form to the final of Euro 2016, Portugal are preparing to add a second major trophy for their national team.

And Samoura said that 480,000 tickets had already been sold - 60 percent of the overall total.

"Here, on modern football arenas there will be tough, honest, fair fight until the last minutes of the match", Putin said in Russian, adding that the eight-team, two-week event would "unite nations and continents, to promote the values of fair and attractive play".

The city of Sochi released a statement insisting the parade was a "celebration of the different continents and a testimony of Russia's open attitude".
