Mixed fortunes for Ronaldo; Portugal continue to be reliant on their star

Pammachio Corsino | 19 Giugno, 2017, 04:26

Ronaldo has scored 12 goals in six global outings since coming off injured in the Euro final, but Mexico - winners of the Confederations Cup in 1999 - are confident they can stop him. However, the VAR disallowed the goal for an offside infringement earlier in the move.

"The Confederations Cup gives us a taste of what to expect the following year with the World Cup", said Ronny Suarez, a soccer fan Hillsborough, New Jersey, rooting for Chile this year.

"This is a magnificent opportunity as a group to compete against a team from the worldwide elite", said Osorio of the Portugal game in Saturday's news conference. "We know what type of player he is, but aside from him there are other quality players that we have to stop". There are two games to go and that's why we're cool, we're at ease.

"In the end the result was fair as Mexico also played well". "There is no reason to be concerned, we have to think about the next match".

Ricardo Quaresma had put Portugal head in the 34th minute, before Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez leveled three minutes before half-time and the sequence repeated itself in the second period, with Cedric Soares netting in the 86th only for Moreno to level one minute into injury time.

Some sloppy passing play was as exciting as things got in the opening period, before the game was lit up following a Cristiano Ronaldo free-kick.

Portugal won 2-1 the only time it faced Mexico in an official match, in the group stage of the 2006 World Cup in Germany.

Mexico claimed a 2-2 draw with Portugal in their Confederations Cup opener on Sunday with a last-gasp equaliser by Hector Moreno. Poor defending, and a lovely goal.

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

Portugal vs Mexico was always going to be one of the better fixtures in a slightly underwhelming competition, and it has delivered, after 45 minutes anyway.

A regular of Portugal's youth teams, Silva began attracting headlines when he joined Porto's senior squad and played well from the start, finishing the season with 21 goals.

Mexico came from behind twice to earn a point against Portugal.

Portugal believed they had grabbed the lead in the 20th minute through Pepe only for the Video Assistant Referee to deem it to have been offside after a brief consultation with the man in the middle.
