Ronaldo heads Portugal to win over Russian Federation

23 Juin, 2017, 12:50 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo, left, scores a goal during the Confederations Cup, Group A soccer match between Russian Federation and Portugal, at the Spartak Stadium in Moscow, Wednesday, June 21, 2017.

The All Whites' winger left the woodwork shaking with this effort at the Confederations Cup.

Having opened their Confed Cup campaign with a 2-0 win over New Zealand, Russia face a step up against Euro 2016 winners Portugal and their troubled captain.

"Russia pressured us in the second half", Santos admitted, and Cherchesov was also pleased with his team's improvement after the break although it was to no avial.

"I didn't get involved too much, I was just waiting for the decision of the video assistant".

"Do you think he should answer questions about issues outside the game?", said the 62-year-old. "So I would imagine that's part of (the incident)".

It could have been 2-0 in the 50th if not for Russian Federation goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev, playing his 100th global game, and his acrobatic one-handed save to keep out Andre Silva's header.

Hoping to throw off the 95-ranked New Zealand team, Mexico's infamous head coach, Juan Carlos Osorio, made some drastic changes to El Tri's lineup leading up to the big game by switching out eight of his starting players.

Pac-12 flavor expected at top of the National Basketball Association draft tonight
Fultz spent just one season at the University of Washington , averaging 23.2 points, 5.9 assists and 5.7 rebounds per game. Draft night is the time when the future of the National Basketball Association can be dictated.


The spark was Chris Wood striking at goal while Mexico defender Carlos Salcedo was down injured after his left shoulder was hurt in an off-the-ball tangle with the striker.

"He's here to talk about the game - full stop".

"I would like to apologise to our fans, the way I spoke to one of their assistant coaches was not okay", said Osorio.

"The game was rough, nearly violent on occasion, so I lost my temper".

Smith had a close-range header saved for New Zealand before Jurgen Damm fired just over after his superb solo run at the other end threatened to seal victory.

After Salcedo was carried off on a stretcher, Wood went on to put New Zealand into a surprise lead in the 42nd minute. Javier Aquino and Marco Fabian combined to set up Raul Jimenez to strike on the turn into the top corner.

"It was intense, it was competitive", Hudson said.
