Euro 2016 winners Portugal, hosts Russia, 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup winners Mexico, and New Zealand, the 2016 Oceania champions, are in Group A.

After the group stages, the top two teams in each pool advance to the semi-finals — in Kazan on 28 June and Sochi on 29 June.

There is then a third-place play-off in Moscow ahead of the 2 July final in St Petersburg.

The tournament kicks off on Saturday when Russia play New Zealand in St Petersburg, with the hosts promising there will be no repeat of the violence which marred Euro 2016.
