Cristiano Ronaldo set up the opening goal as his Portugal side were held to a draw by Mexico in their first game at the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation.

Substitute Cedric Soares looked like being the European champions' hero with his 86th-minute deflected shot, but Moreno's header from a corner spoiled the Southampton defender's celebration of his first global goal to snatch a 2-2 draw for Mexico.

"We need to keep believing in ourselves, we know we have a great chance". They scored in the last few minutes and now we think of the next game.

In Kazan hosted the second match of the eighth confederations Cup Portugal national team missed the victory over Mexico.

The assistants duly looked it over, and awarded what looked to be a correct offside decision against Portugal, disallowing the goal.

"We played a team that has very good, technical players". "We were always more risky than them, both in our organised play and on the counter attack".

"Hector Moreno's goal handed Mexican football a huge result", he said.

Meanwhile, Portugal boss Fernando Santos rued the concession of a late equaliser.


And Ronaldo is now be linked with a shock move away from Real Madrid, with the likes of former club Manchester United said to be extremely interested. "Mexico was better, more aggressive". There are two games to go and that's why we're cool, we're at ease.

He attracted headlines last week after being accused by a Spanish prosecutor of defrauding the country's tax authorities.

He skipped the post-match press conference which he was supposed to attend as the man of the match.

The Euro 2016 winners took the lead on 34 minutes when Ronaldo sprinted into the box and his beautifully-timed pass found Quaresma unmarked in the area. Raphael Guerreiro miskicked a cross into the box, allowing Carlos Vela to play the ball back in for Hernandez to score.

Mexico's Carlos Salcedo misjudged a long ball at midfield, and it soared over his head straight to Cristiano Ronaldo.

"We wanted to win, of course, but we have to be satisfied with this result against the European champions", Chicharito said.

In the second half, Cedric Soares scored the second goal for Portugal just four minutes before the end of the game.

Argentine referee Nestor Pitana disallowed a goal by Portugals Pepe in the 21st minute of the first half after consulting the video assistant referee.
