Mexico snatch draw with Portugal in Confederations Cup

Mexico snatch draw with Portugal in Confederations Cup

In the first half, a Portugal goal was ruled out for offside but it was only when the replays were shown that we saw that there was no infringement for the goal itself, but rather when the initial free kick was taken 15 minutes prior.

Ronaldo insisted Wednesday he had a "clear conscience" after Spanish prosecutors accused the Real Madrid star of evading 14.7 million euros in tax through offshore companies.

"It's a high-profile match", Mexico forward Hirving Lozano said.

The second half saw both sides play with more caution, but Portugal looked good to get the "ultimate" goal. "It was a fair result for how the teams played". There are two games to go and that's why we're cool, we're at ease. Chile is ranked fourth, but lacks the same tradition as Portugal and Mexico and has struggled in South American qualifying.

Group A also includes Russian Federation and New Zealand which played their game on Saturday. It is played by the continental champions plus the host nation and the World Cup victor.

But the Portugal captain created another shooting opportunity for Quaresma with 10 minutes remaining and, although Ochoa saved comfortably, they continued to pile late pressure on Mexico.

She also admitted that she thought it would be very hard for Grenfell Tower residents to find long-term accommodation locally. The move came as the official response to the crisis drew fresh condemnation from residents and London Mayor Sadiq Khan .

"We had nearly 60 percent of the possession".

The UEFA and CONCACAF winners went head-to-head at Kazan Arena, and Portugal were the brighter of the two sides in a first half that was open and attacking.

Portugal coach Fernando Santos said it was not the performance he expected from his team.

Mexico has won five of its last six matches, with a 2-1 home loss to Croatia in a friendly in May.

Portugal qualified for the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup by winning the UEFA Euro 2016.

He has helped Madrid win three Champions League titles.

The Euro 2016 winners kicked on again in the game's closing stages and Cedric netted with the help of a Hector Herrera deflection, but Moreno responded to earn a share of the spoils, with further talk of Ronaldo's uncertain club future sure to follow Portugal to their next match against Group A leaders Russian Federation.

Raphael Guerreiro missed a cross at the far post which gave Carlos Vela the chance to hook the ball back across for Hernandez to power home a diving header.
