ST PETERSBURG, June 17. /TASS/. Russia’s head coach Stanislav Cherchesov said words of gratitude to organizers of the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup and management of St. Petersburg Stadium for laying out a good-quality playing surface, he told reporters at a news conference after the opening match.
The Russian national football team defeated New Zealand 2-0 on Saturday in Russia’s second largest city of St. Petersburg. In May, the new stadium had to re-lay the roll-out artificial field.
"The pitch is of good quality. The organizers have done a great thing. Today the match was really cool and the result is good. It is all right," Cherchesov said.
