Portugal draw against Mexico

20 Juin 2017

After starting their campaign with a 2-0 loss to hosts Russia, Oceania champions New Zealand are expected to be in for an even sterner test against their North and Central American counterparts, who drew 2-2 with Portugal in their first match of the tournament.

With this draw, Portugal and Mexico are in second and third place, respectively, in Group A with one point each.

A look at the best bets ahead of more Confederations Cup action. "If we win we're one step away". This time Turpin confirmed the goal.

Quaresma had an opportunity to get his second of the game and win it for his team with 10 minutes to go, set up for an acrobatic effort by Ronaldo only to shoot straight at the 'keeper.

Portugal and Chile both had goals disallowed for offside.

It was much more than a golden-leaf hairstyle that marked Ricardo Quaresma's influential Euro 2016 final performance for Portugal. Reviews may only be used to overturn "a clear error", which Federation Internationale de Football Association defines as when "almost everyone who is neutral agrees the decision is incorrect".

Portugal ended 2-2 with Mexico and, perhaps fortunately for FIFA, Chile beat Cameroon 2-0.

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

On the issue of Brexit, the taoiseach the will use his first meeting with the prime minister to raise a series of concerns. Mr Varadkar has said he wants to renew the close bond and strong relations that exist between Ireland and the UK.

However, the goal was ruled out less than a minute later as the referee used the Video Assistant Referee to check Pepe's positioning when the ball had been fed back into the box from Ronaldo's free-kick.

VAR has been at the heart of the tournament so far, but it remains a work in progress.

Ronaldo, the reigning world player of the year, is the biggest star at the Confederations Cup.

The other two teams in Group B - Australia and world champions Germany - play on Monday (16:00 BST). In March IFAB will take a decision over whether VAR will be used in Russian Federation in 2018.

Chelsea have also been linked with the Ballon d'Or victor, although Madrid remain determined to persuade Ronaldo to stay put.

Nani was already celebrating with his teammates when Argentine referee Nestor Pitana asked for the ball and indicated the goal was being reviewed.

Uncertainty in the stadium lasted far beyond the six-second target Federation Internationale de Football Association had set past year for officials to review their opinions.

"It was in the previous move after Cristiano [Ronaldo]'s shot hit the crossbar".

Portugal led twice but were left frustrated as they switched off at the death, Moreno heading in from a corner. "But we have to be careful because I don't think people understand this new rule really well".
