KAZINFORM The main annual worldwide football tournament among national teams - the FIFA Confederations Cup - kicks off in Russian Federation on June 17, Kazinform has learnt from TASS.

Globe champions Germany and the champions from FIFA's 6 confederations are competing in the two-week event that will permit Russian Federation to check its soccer framework in 4 of the 11 cities hosting World Cup matches.

The tournament is traditionally used as a warm-up for the following year's World Cup and features the home nation, the winners of six continental tournaments and the reigning FIFA World Cup holders.

Russia's preparations for the World Cup were "proceeding well", Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

Smolov was named Budweiser Man of the Match, while New Zealand now have two unwanted Tournament of Champions records to their name, having gone 513 minutes without scoring in the competition and ten matches without winning.
