Cristiano Ronaldo thinking only of Confederations Cup: Andre Silva

19 June 2017

A last gasp header by Hector Moreno helped Mexico secure a vital point against European Champions Portugal in the second match of Group A at the ongoing 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup in Russian Federation.

Cristiano Ronaldo has made his first public remarks since news broke of his desire to leave Real Madrid, though he made sure only to focus on Portugal's latest match against Mexico.

Javier Hernandez levelled for Mexico shortly before half-time although Cedric Soares looked to have earned Portugal victory four minutes from time.

Portugal, the defending European champions, play Mexico on Sunday in their Group A opener in the eight-nation competition that serves as a warm-up for next year's World Cup in Russian Federation.

The Confederations Cup 2017 kicked off on Saturday (June 17) night with hosts Russian Federation claiming a 2-0 win over New Zealand.

And such was the impact of the change that his compatriot Fonte admitted Ronaldo's new hairdo took a few of his Portugal teammates aback when he joined up with Fernando Santos' squad in Russian Federation ahead of the Confederations Cup.

"Cristiano Ronaldo is a great player but he's not the only one".

The Real Madrid striker, whose club future has been the subject of media speculation after he was accused by Spanish prosecutors of committing tax fraud, which Ronaldo denies, set up Portugal's opener.

With Mexico still scrambling at the back, another delivery from the right was flicked into the bottom-left corner by Nani, but the referee - assisted by the VAR - disallowed the goal for offside.

"It was in the previous move after Cristiano [Ronaldo]'s shot hit the crossbar". So we have to stay calm and think about the next game.

Spithill believes his team have to make some “serious changes” to their boat if they are to keep their title hopes alive. We need to go faster, it's pretty obvious". "This is not going to be anything less that a huge battle we are expecting".

Portugal regained the lead in the 86th minute through Cedric Soares' first senior worldwide goal but Moreno's 91st minute header off the post ensured both nations shared the spoils.

"It is a little hard for the players", Chile coach Juan Antonio Pizzi said. However, other than that he did not threaten Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa. A defensive error allowed Carlos Vela to get on the ball, and his hooked cross was headed in.

Portugal vs Mexico Betting Odds: Portugal 2.20, Draw 3.44 and Mexico 4.00.

In addition to that, this should be a low scoring game since neither side will want to be too exposed this early in a tournament so the under 2.5 goals also makes sense.
