World champions Germany and the champions from FIFA's six confederations are competing in the two-week tournament that will allow Russian Federation to test its soccer infrastructure in four of the 11 cities hosting World Cup matches.
The eight-team global tournament kicks off on June 17 when the host nation takes on New Zealand.
A dominant Russian outfit took the lead in the 31st-minute, Kiwi defender Michael Boxall credited with an own-goal after a blunder by a fellow defender.
It will be European champion Portugal, with Cristiano Ronaldo in top form, taking on Gold Cup victor Mexico in a game that is likely to decide the group victor. The tournament lasts for just over two weeks and the championship game is played on July 2 in St. Petersburg.
Control matches before the start of the Confederations Cup for New Zealand were not easy, and the meeting against Northern Ireland and Belarus ended in defeat with the same score 1: 0.
"The Confederations Cup gives us a taste of what to expect the following year with the World Cup", said Ronny Suarez, a soccer fan Hillsborough, New Jersey, rooting for Chile this year.
Russian Federation made a rapid start, with Aleksandr Golovin having a drive unconvincingly dealt with by New Zealand goalkeeper Stefan Marinovic, before the hosts were twice denied by goal-line clearances.
Qualifying teams in this year's competition include Russia, New Zealand, Portugal, Mexico, Cameroon, Chile, Australia, and Germany.

Russia, who are ranked 63rd in FIFA's global rankings, have been plagued with injuries and at least five players have been ruled out of the tournament.
New Zealand almost pulled a goal back in the 77th minute but Akinfeev produced a fine save to keep out Ryan Thomas' effort, before Tommy Smith saw his header cleared off the line a minute later. A three-player race to meet the rebound off a post saw the sliding Boxall's trailing right arm get the final touch in a bundle of bodies.
Russian Federation and New Zealand will be battling on the pitch today to win the game. FIFA President Gianni Infantino will also attend the match.
Russia's victory showed it can win a big game at home, even if Putin is in the arena.
