Russia leave Israel standing

Israel 0-4 Russia
Two Aleksandr Kerzhakov goals, and further strikes from Aleksandr Kokorin and Viktor Fayzulin kept Fabio Capello's side on maximum points in Group F.

Aleksandr Kezhakov struck twice as Russia built on their 2-0 opening-day win against Northern Ireland with an impressive 4-0 FIFA World Cup Group F success in Israel.

The FC Zenit St Petersburg striker curled in a measured free-kick after seven minutes to set Fabio Capello's side on their way, and Aleksandr Kokorin then hit his first international goal on 18 minutes, reacting first during a melee in the Israel penalty area.

Kerzhakov doubled his personal haul on 64 minutes, meeting a Viktor Fayzulin ball with a delicate touch to leave Dudu Aouate with no chance. Things went from bad to worse for Eli Guttman's side when Fayzulin scored a fourth of the night at the humid Ramat Gan Stadium.

Israek, who drew 1-1 in Azerbaijan in their opening fixture, visit Luxembourg in their next qualifier on 12 October, when Russia play at home against fellow Group F heavyweights Portugal.
