Cristiano Ronaldo will put speculation over his club future firmly to one side as he leads European champions Portugal into their Confederations Cup opener against Mexico in Kazan on Sunday.

The 32-year-old Portugal worldwide is coming into the Confederations Cup in form and on a high having led Real Madrid to a La Liga and Champions League double last season, but Mexico won't have a specific man-marker for Ronaldo.

Fernando Santos sent Portugal out in a 4-4-2 formation on the Confederations Cup debut, with talisman and captain Cristiano Ronaldo leading the line alongside Nani but despite their obvious superiority on paper, they struggled to get a hold of the ball in the opening exchanges.

Ricardo Quaresma and Andres Cedric scored for Portugal in the Group A game while Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez and Hector Moreno scored Mexico's goals.

KAZAN, Russia (AP) - Portugal had a first-half goal against Mexico chalked off in the Confederations Cup after the action was reviewed on video.

A short statement to FIFA's in-house television reporters, lamenting that his team "suffered at the last minute" due to Hector Moreno's late equaliser, was the only material anybody had to go on, though Ronaldo later said there was no need for Portugal "to sound the alarm" in relation to the result.

The second half started in a similarly cautious vein as the first, but came to life in the latter stages, with defender Cedric giving Portugal the lead on 86 minutes after Mexico failed to clear the danger in their box. "We are calm and thinking about the next game".

Following their clash with the Portuguese, Mexico will play New Zealand on Wednesday in Sochi.


"The team continue to believe in qualification, we have great possibilities, because there are still two games left".

"However, our team is not bad either, and we really think we have a chance of winning". There was later some doubt - and general confusion - over Soares' goal, which ultimately stood.

"We have to win because if we win then we'll be a step nearer qualifying". I said we were not favourites, but contenders for victory.

"34" - GOAL! Portugal 1-0 Mexico.

Both Mexico and Portugal are tied for second in Group A, with Russian Federation having gained a full three points by beating New Zealand on Saturday.

The shared points were probably a fair result. We played without confidence, couldn't connect two or three passes.

"We played a team that has very good, technical players".
