With the win, Portugal are now topping Group A with four points from two games while Russian Federation are in second place with three points from two games.
Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo scored the only goal of the game at the Spartak Stadium in Moscow just a day after he was summoned to appear in a Spanish court over allegations relating to tax fraud. Portugal's coach Fernando Santos has said he will rotate his team through the Confed Cup. "Mexico are a world-class side and we're the smallest team in the competition".
"They went toe-to-toe with a top team in the world".
"I thought it was freakish really, it was like we had elbowed the player the way it was going on", said Hudson.
"We lose, you lose, everyone loses". But there is still belief. The goal was Ronaldo's 74th of his worldwide career-the most among all active players and the national record for Portugal. Last friendly match was held in October 2016, 2: 1 in favor of "Aztec".
New Zealand, meanwhile, crash out after a heart-breaking defeat, Ryan Thomas hitting the crossbar late on.
"We caused them a lot of problems so we go into this game with our own game plan".
"It's great development but we want to get results here, so we're not happy at all". We are going to be positive.
"We don't play these kinds of games so regularly".
Bill Cosby sexual assault accuser speaks out after mistrial
A mistrial was declared and Cosby, who was confident he would either be acquitted or see a mistrial, left the court on bail. The juror who spoke to ABC News also described a tense deliberation room that saw people break down in tears and lash out.
"The game was rough, nearly violent on occasion, so I lost my temper".
Ronaldo let his football do the talking after the recent tax-evasion accusations that have left his Real Madrid future uncertain, with his second man-of-the-match performance following Sunday's 2-2 draw with Mexico. Mexico's coach Juan Carlos Osorio took particular exception to this, berating Wood himself from the dugout.
"In the second half we changed things round a bit and we had several good chances but unfortunately they did not produce any goals".
"We came into this tournament with so much hope", said Hudson.
Mexico plays Russian Federation and Portugal faces New Zealand on Sunday (AEST). We were deflated after the game because we felt we had more.
One major drawback in the game for Portugal was their young left back Raphael guerreiro was left injured in the second half near the one hour mark and had to be substituted to prevent further damage.
"We will be courageous and ultimately we want to make sure the country is proud of what we do".
