Portugal vs Mexico Confederation Cup group stage match end in draw

21 Juin 2017

Mexico claimed a 2-2 draw with Portugal in their Confederations Cup opener on Sunday with a last-gasp equaliser by Hector Moreno.

It is the second game of Portugal vs Mexico which ended in a 2-2 draw, that had so much drama and controversies. After friendly 1-0 defeats to both Northern Ireland and Belarus en route to Russian Federation, the All Whites have now played three matches in the last two weeks without scoring.

It is fair to say that in a match with Mexico, Portugal was more concerned about restraining an opponent than about an attack.

The four-time world player of the year has protested his innocence and has threatened to leave Real over the matter. Now we need to think of the next game, which we have to win. We saw how risky Portuguese counter-attacks can be against Mexico.

"We don't want to go in and be fearful, or negative or sit back and let Mexico do what they want. We deserved to win and the team are to be congratulated". "We faced the European champions, a team that plays at a very high level, and we played equal to them".

Ronaldo is now at the Confederations Cup with Portugal, and Santos is confident that the 32-year-old's full focus is on helping his country to success rather than his individual situation. "I know the talent and ability of my players and we have the ability to face them". "It was a great time for us because we scored a lot of goals and had two great games".

Commenting on the match, FIFA Secretary General Fatma Samoura said tickets for the group game between Portugal and Russian Federation have been sold.

That was how the game ended as Portugal took one step to qualifying for the semi-finals of the competition. "In the end the result was fair as Mexico also played well".

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