Confederations Cup Report: Portugal 2 - 2 Mexico

19 Juin, 2017, 14:18 | Author: Claudine Rigal

Mexico equalized eight minutes later through a Javier Javier Hernandez diving header after poor defending by the Portuguese.

Portugal's advance in the early stages was soon rewarded by Pepe latching onto a long distance effort from winger Nani, only to be retrospectively ruled offside.

It had seemed as though Cedric had handed all three points to the European champions when he fired Portugal in front in the 85th minute but Mexico and Moreno had other ideas. We know we still have lots of opportunities, there are two games remaining and that's why we're calm.

Portugal believed they had grabbed the lead in the 20th minute through Pepe only for the Video Assistant Referee to deem it to have been offside after a brief consultation with the man in the middle.

The highly entertaining fixture saw Cristiano Ronaldo put through a sublime assist for Ricardo Quaresma who slotted home the opening goal in the 35th minute.

He said: "It was not the result we wanted, the team had the game nearly won and we conceded a goal in the last minutes, but that is football". "We faced the European champions, a team that plays at a very high level, and we played equal to them".

Ronaldo carried the ball into the area but was surrounded by three defenders and he passed it to Quaresma, who was free from markers on the far side of the box.

"However, Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa has warned against focusing on just the Real Madrid icon as the two sides meet".

KAZAN, Russia (AP) - Cristiano Ronaldo is in the spotlight again, but this time not for his skills as a player.

Hector Moreno snatched a stoppage-time equaliser as Mexico denied Portugal victory in their opening Confederations Cup match.

Predictions: An exciting game with loads of goals to end in a 3-2 win for Portugal. He, along with Nani and Ronaldo, are coming towards the last years of their career and it is hard to see how Portugal will adequately replace them after the 2018 World Cup.
