Confederations Cup: Mexico frustrate Portugal

Kenny Thornton | 19 June, 2017, 11:22

However the goal was ruled out after the three Video Assistant Referees reviewed it and found out a Portuguese player was in an offside position.

Ricardo Quaresma opened the scoring for Portugal just after the half-hour mark before Javier Hernandez headed in the equaliser to restore parity.

However, Mexico secured a point in stoppage time when defender Hector Moreno rose well to head home from close range.

Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo insists there is no reason to be alarmed by their opening draw in the Confederations Cup.

The result leaves hosts Russian Federation top of Group A, following their 2-0 victory over New Zealand yesterday. Portugal and Mexico are on a point each, while New Zealand are rock bottom with no point.

Portugal and Chile both had goals disallowed for offside.

Portugal had the ball in the net early on after a Cristiano Ronaldo volley crashed off the crossbar and eventually reach Pepe to score.

A source claims Ronaldo "feels great indignation" with all the conjecture about his tax affairs and a sense of "injustice" at the allegations - which he contests - and has made a decision to leave Spain.

Overall, we wouldn't go as far as saying that Microsoft "won" E3 2017 , but the company certainly played its cards very well. Obviously when we think about UWP and the ability for games to run across console and PC, we're getting closer.

The FIFA Player of the Year, who had scored 11 goals in seven games coming into Sunday's encounter, was perhaps not as influential as usual but was still named man-of-the-match.

And Ronaldo is now be linked with a shock move away from Real Madrid, with the likes of former club Manchester United said to be extremely interested.

Of greater effect was the astute piece of vision later in the first half, which set up Ricardo Quaresma for a strike that counted, even if the speed and power that used to characterize Ronaldo initially failed him.

Ochoa saved well from Andre Silva, but he could do little as Cedric ran onto Gelson Martins' square cross from the right to fortuitously divert the ball into the far corner.

Portugal have no injuries ahead of their Confederations Cup opener against Mexico with manager Fernando Santos having a fully fit squad to select from.

Mexico: Ochoa 6, Salcedo 5, Moreno 7, Diego Reyes 6, Layún 6, Guardado 6, Herrera 6, J. Dos Santos 6, Vela 7, Chicharito 7, Jiménez 6.

With the game looking like it may end deadlocked at 1-1 defender Cedric popped up in the box to fire home his first global goal via a deflection.
