MEXICO DRAW: It was not the result we wanted -Ronaldo

20 Juin, 2017, 17:08 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier
  • Mexico's Javier Hernandez celebrates after scoring his side's first goal during the Confederations Cup Group A soccer match between Portugal and Mexico at the Kazan Arena Russia Sunday

"The team had nearly won and we suffered in the last minute, but this is football".

Ronaldo added in his post-match interview: "We are calm and we have to think about the next game".

Host Russia who defeated New Zealand 2-0 in the opening fixture of the tournament lead the group with 3 points. Chile was also made to wait for a review before a goal was confirmed. His goal in the 91st minute was also referred to the video assistant referees - presumably to check on another possible offside - but it stood.

"In the end it was a well-deserved result after how we played today", Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio said. "No one has understood it very well yet". Pace, skill and attacking flair are the traditional hallmarks of Mexican football.

Portugal's No.20 has always lived in a world of his own and was never trusted beyond reasonable doubt that he would move on to do something unexpectedly stupid much to the detriment of his own and his team's. Mexico are likely to line-up differently than a more defensively-minded Russian Federation, with four at the back, an extra man in midfield and a triangle of forwards.

With no communication to players or fans why referrals were being made, there was a slight sense of uncertainty and confusion and, while Santos accepted that was to be expected with new technology, he found it frustrating.

Spanish prosecutors have accused Ronaldo of evading tax of 14.7 million euros (£13m), which he has denied. The Real Madrid striker has scored 73 goals in 140 worldwide appearances and naturally he heads the betting in the first goalscorer stakes.

United ready to seal £175m Ronaldo deal
The 32 year old is said to have "pleaded" with agent Jorge Mendes to seal the deal - which would see him return to Mancunian soil. On Monday, newly re-elected Real president Florentino Perez defended his star player amid the accusations.

The Portugal skipper could not control the ball to shoot but his brilliant pass between three defenders left Quaresma free to round keeper Guillermo Ochoa and tap into the empty net.

Mexico: Ochoa - Salcedo (Araujo, 67), D. Reyes, Moreno, Layun Herrera, John.

Their advantage would last just eight minutes, as Mexico's record goalscorer Javier Hernandez met a right wing cross with a diving header to pull his team level on the verge of half-time.

"It was not the result we wanted", the Portugal captain said.

His second half display was far quieter although it was his ball for substitute Gelson Martins that led to what should have been the 86th-minute match-winner from Cedric Soares. No need to remember your password or log in, just click.

Portugal coach, Fernando Santos, has expressed his anger after a goal was disallowed in their 2-2 draw with Mexico at the ongoing Confederations Cup in Russian Federation, by the video assistant referee (VAR).
