Russia got their FIFA World Cup qualifying Group F campaign off to a winning start, as a goal in either half gave Fabio Capello's men a comfortable victory.

Taking charge of his first competitive game, everything went to plan for Capello as Viktor Fayzulin stroked in his first goal for Russia on the half-hour. Northern Ireland were unable to impose themselves on the game and Roman Shirokov secured the win from the spot with 12 minutes left.
