Confederations Cup: Mexico snatch late draw against Portugal

Confederations Cup: Mexico snatch late draw against Portugal

Cedric Soares restored Portugal's lead on 86 minutes, but Hector Moreno's stoppage-time header salvaged a point for Mexico in their Group A opener.

The Euro 2016 winners kicked on again in the game's closing stages and Cedric netted with the help of a Hector Herrera deflection, but Moreno responded to earn a share of the spoils, with further talk of Ronaldo's uncertain club future sure to follow Portugal to their next match against Group A leaders Russian Federation.

The result leaves the two nations with a point each, two points behind host nation, Russia, which opened their Confederations Cup account with a 2-0 win over New Zealand.

Santos' side improved from there, though, and when Carlos Salcedo allowed Ronaldo in on goal on the left, the forward quickly adjusted to an uncharacteristic stumble to slip a pass into the box for Quaresma, who coolly rounded Guillermo Ochoa to prod into the net.

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

"We still believe in qualification, we have great possibilities, because there are still two games left". There are two games to go and that's why we're cool, we're at ease.

"I first of all thank the fans for voting for me, but it's not the result that we wanted".

That doesn't appear to have been a disadvantage for New Zealand who accelerated clear after the first mark in the second game. But the windward position of the kiwis, plus good speed, saw the Challenger drop in front of the Defender to lead at Mark 1.

"If we win we'll be close to qualifying so it's not the time to sound the alarm".

Cameroon goalie Fabrice Ondoa had little time to settle into Sunday's second Confederations Cup game with South American champions Chile on the front foot from kick off.

Ronaldo was likely going to be probed about ongoing speculation regarding his Real Madrid future, having reportedly grown upset in the Spanish capital and angled for a move away this summer.

"We played a team that has very good, technical players", said Portugsl coach Fernando Santos.

At the end of the match, the teams again exchanged goals - the Portuguese efforts of Cedric, it seemed, snatched victory but for a few seconds before the final whistle Moreno flanking flow and saved Mexico from defeat.

"At the start we couldn't enjoy good control of the ball but then we managed to balance things out and could have won it".
