Portugal and Mexico draw 2-2 in Confederations Cup

19 June 2017, 02:10 | Opal Carroll

Mexico's defense was only anxious about Ronaldo there, and that was a mistake.

The European champions did open the scoring in the 34th minute as Ronaldo was given the freedom to run in behind the defence before sneaking a pass through to Quaresma to finish neatly. Now we need to think of the next game, which we have to win.

Portugal take on tournament hosts Russian Federation in their next group-stage outing on Wednesday afternoon, before then facing outsiders New Zealand three days later.

Mexico's all-time leading scorer still had time before the end of the half to blaze over from a good position.

The Real Madrid striker, whose club future has been the subject of media speculation after he was accused by Spanish prosecutors of committing tax fraud, which Ronaldo denies, set up Portugal's opener. The team said that he couldn't go because he was receiving post-game treatment, although it said it wasn't anything serious.

Ronaldo's backheel then saw Quaresma fire narrowly wide but another defensive error allowed Mexico to draw level three minutes before the break.

Jury awarded $870.000 to a man over a case of malpractice
A man in Pennsylvania won a total of $870,000 after undergoing an operation in 2013 where the doctor removed the wrong testicle . Even if Hanes does have the remaining testicle removed, he would then need lifelong testosterone replacement therapy, he added.


The former Manchester United forward capitalised on Carlos Salcedo misjudging a header just inside his own half to race into the penalty area and, given too much time to turn, the Portugal captain was able to easily pick out the unmarked Quaresma, who deceived Guillermo Ochoa with his first touch and slotted home with his second. Mexico midfielder Carlos Vela got to the ball near the far post and sent it to the middle of the area for Chicharito's goal.

With a few minutes remaining, Cedric blasted a shot from a tight angle that squeezed past the 'keeper, but Moreno's late header rescued a point with only a minute remaining.

Ochoa made a great diving save in the 85th to keep young Portugal forward Andre Silva from scoring with a header.

KAZAN, Russia (AP) - Portugal had a first-half goal against Mexico chalked off in the Confederations Cup after the action was reviewed on video.

There were concerns that the match could be suspended after warnings from Federation Internationale de Football Association against homophobic chants by Mexican fans, but they were only heard a couple of times during the match and did not cause any disruption.
