Russia eased past Luxembourg in a rain-drenched early kick-off to take pole position in Group F.

FC Dinamo Moskva's Aleksandr Kokorin was the star, hitting a first-half double – the opener inside 20 seconds, Russia's fastest ever goal – to send his team on their way to a routine win in a match that was delayed for an hour due to heavy rain. Aleksandr Kerzhakov and Aleksandr Samedov added further efforts after the break to negate Aurélien Joachim's late response for the visitors.
