Aleksandr Kerzhakov's sixth-minute strike proved sufficient as Russia earned a slender 1-0 win at home against Portugal.

The hosts could hardly have dreamt of a better start. Kerzhakov found himself one on one with Rui Patrício after a lovely pass from his FC Zenit St Petersburg team-mate Roman Shirokov and sent the keeper the wrong way.
