All WhitescoachAnthony Hudson says his team will play without fear in the opening game of the FIFAConfederations Cup. They're facing a New Zealand side that's been goalless in their last two games.
One of the most common time-wasting tactics used by teams holding a narrow lead is for a player to be substituted and then leave the field slowly, stopping to shake hands with opponents and match officials along the way.
Championship top scorer Chris Wood leads unfancied New Zealand onto the world stage as they take on hosts Russian Federation.
Russia's next game comes up against European champions Portugal on Wednesday, while New Zealand will face Mexico also on Wednesday. The Russian team being the hosts of the tournament, definitely will get more support, while they should be motivated to the maximum.
The "All Whites" - ranked 95th in the world - are undoubtedly the underdogs going into the game against the hosts, but are more than capable of pulling off a shock. "It's a very good chance to prove myself", said the 26-year-old, who missed Euro 2016 due to cruciate ligament damage.
New Zealand lost both their recent friendlies 1-0, against Northern Ireland and Belarus, respectively, but Hudson believes that this has not impacted their preparation.
The Leeds United frontman was the top scorer in England's second-tier championship last season, and has bagged 19 goals in 48 appearances for his country.
- Germany are competing in their third Confederations Cup; they were eliminated at the group stage in 1999 before finishing third as the hosts in 2005.
Germany is the top-ranked team in the eight-nation Confederations Cup, at No. 3, but it came to Russian Federation with a second-string squad that has only three players from the team that won the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
Degenek, who played his formative years in Germany before moving to Japan in January, will be tasked with helping neutralise his threat, but is unfazed by the challenge.
Russia's midfielder Igor Smolnikov. "It is a great way for the guys to be seen on the worldwide stage against some of the best players in the world".
However, they are also tactically astute and at number four in the current Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings are a formidable opponent - as Australia saw in their opening World Cup clash in Brazil.
"For Russia this is a great holiday, we have been preparing for it over the past several years". The USSR beat New Zealand 3-0 at the 1982 World Cup in Spain.
"I don't know how it was to play on, but judging by the game it seemed the quality (of the pitch) was rather good". And Mexico, like most Central and South American nations, always prioritise such Federation Internationale de Football Association tournaments.
