WATCH: Russia scores wild first goal vs. New Zealand at 2017 Confederations Cup
It was Denis Glushakov with the goal in the first half
The first goal of the 2017 Confederations Cup belongs to the hosts.
Russia, playing New Zealand in Group A to kick off the cup, scored in the 31st minute through Denis Glushakov. It came off some lovely passing from the hosts, with Glushakov lifting the ball over the goalkeeper and off the right post while a crazy scramble at that post took place.
Take a look:
That was just brilliant passing, and that's some confidence from Glushakov to loft his shot.
