FIFA Confederations Cup: Mexico come from behind to beat New Zealand

"I thought it was freaky really, it was like we had elbowed the player the way it was going on", said Hudson.

Pepe says his Portugal and Real Madrid team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo can handle the pressure of the tax-evasion scandal clouding his club future, ahead of Wednesday's Confederations Cup clash against hosts Russian Federation. We don't want to be fearful or negative or sit back and allow Mexico to do what they want.

Mexico take on New Zealand in Sochi as firm favourites having held Euro 2016-winners Portugal to a 2-2 draw, while the All Whites lost 2-0 to Russian Federation in their opening game.

Mexico face New Zealand on Wednesday in Sochi in their second Confederations Cup match. "We have a clear understanding of what we need to do".

Hudson will face a hard dilemma as to how to approach Mexico, who enjoyed large spells of possession against Portugal.

"I thought they played some incredible football - they look like a better team now than they did when we faced them back in October".

"Our talent can surprise them - and that can be the factor which can win us the match".

The midfield was among the strongest components on the Mexico team with players like Andres Guardado and Jonathan Dos Santos linking up the whole game for the Aztec side.

As man of the match, he was due to appear in front of the press, but Ronaldo was in no mood to take any questions amid ongoing uncertainty about his future at Madrid and stuck to a few prepared words on Portugal's win.

"We can't be inside our comfort zone", said Osorio.

New Zealand and Mexico have met in seven A Internationals with the All Whites winning once in 1980 in Auckland (4-0) and drawing once in 1999 in Egypt (1-1).

"They have players with quality in all positions, but I believe the style will stay the same. It's a world-class squad and an incredible test".
