Ronaldo header gives Portugal win at Confederations Cup

24 Juin 2017

Hudson was asked how the All Whites will attempt to stop Cristiano Ronaldo, although reports suggest the four time Ballon d'Or victor may be rested by Fernando Santos. He peaked from April onward with a rush of Champions League goals, including two in the final to help beat Juventus 4-1.

Consecutive defeats mean New Zealand have already been eliminated but Hudson's side have earned plenty of plaudits for the way they have pushed both Russian Federation and Mexico in their two Group A matches.

New Zealand will have to settle for the chance to play the role of spoiler after losing both their games so far. The Kiwis will breath a slight sigh of relief if Ronaldo is rested with the Real Madrid star having netted 15 times in his last nine games for club and country.

"In the second half we changed things round a bit and we had several good chances but unfortunately they did not produce any goals". Portugal kicked off their Confederations Cup campaign with a 2-2 draw against South American giants Mexico.

"I see that Portugal only won one game in the 90 minutes in the European Championship but that's not true, nobody can be European champions if you do not win four games". I repeat - some players play more, some play less but everyone feels an important part of this team.

He scored his 20th global goal - and New Zealand's first for 334 minutes - when latching onto a deflected through ball from Clayton Lewis. However, goals from Raul Jimenez and Oribe Peralta sealed the three points for Mexico and sent them top of Group A. They will be playing for pride on Saturday evening and could struggle against what is a high quality Portugal attack which includes the likes of Ronaldo, Nani and Bernardo Silva to name a few.

The analysts estimated EPS for the higher end at 0.19 and lower end at -0.25 while the year ago reported earnings per share was 0. Private Management Group Inc bought 1.16 million shares as the company's stock rose 19.88% with the market.

Mexico made the All Whites pay with two smartly-taken goals in the second spell, denying what Wood said could have been a famous upset.

As always, Anthony Hudson's men will look to be aggressive, but they will be up against the best defence they've faced yet, and they might do little more than leave themselves exposed going the other way.

After Herrera's introduction, Javier Aquino forced New Zealand keeper Stefan Marinovic into a left-handed save, before Giovani dos Santos fired over.

The All Whites' semi-final hopes are now over.

"It's over, but he knows what he said to me", added Osorio when asked to repeat what was said.
