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 are calm and we have to think about the next game".

The goal was eventually ruled out, after the referee consulted with the Video Assistant Referees, who deemed Pepe to have been offside.

Santos went on to suggest that "it was always our goals" that the VAR was used, but added the team will accept it. Mexico was slightly more positive, with goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa acknowledging that the decision did take time, but that it was the right decision in the end. It was a good result at 2-1 but that's football. "We nearly had the game won but we suffered in the final minutes".

The FIFA Player of the Year, who had scored 11 goals in seven games coming into Sunday's encounter, was perhaps not as influential as usual but was still named man-of-the-match.

The result leaves both sides tied for second place in Group A, behind hosts Russian Federation who top the group after beating New Zealand 2-0 on Saturday in St. Petersburg.


He said: "It was not the result we wanted, the team had the game nearly won and we conceded a goal in the last minutes, but that is football".

Ricardo Quaresma opened the scoring for Portugal just after the half-hour mark before Javier Hernandez headed in the equaliser to restore parity.

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. The goal was disallowed for offside on review. VAR can change the destiny of football - Zinedine Zidane, Real Madrid and Ronaldo may not have been European champions if VaR was present. "It was a fair result for how the teams played".

Ronaldo's backheel then saw Quaresma fire narrowly wide but another defensive error allowed Mexico to draw level three minutes before the break.

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Raphael Guerreiro failed to deal with a cross into the box and Carlos Vela teed up Hernandez, who met the cross with a diving header.

Match official Nestor Pitana also felt the need to refer Cedric Soares' effort on Portugal's second goal for another opinion.
