Like in last-year's tune-up tournament Russian Federation faced the on-paper easiest opponent first, with now Egypt on Tuesday and Uruguay on June 25. "That's why all the members of this team understand and feel for each other well", he said in remarks released by the Kremlin.

Alan Dzagoev had been at the heart of things in their midfield promptings but had to go off after pulling a hamstring in the 23rd minute.

Cherchesov spoke of "a crescendo" as the matches become more hard, and warned that Egypt will not be easy in St Petersburg even if their Liverpool star forward Mohamed Salah is not fit to play after his Champions League final injury.

"The main victory is already won", it said, praising an organizational effort in which a dozen stadiums have been built or rebuilt and a huge security operation rolled out. "We did not show today what we have done in our previous games", Pizzi said.
