Confed Cup: Chicharito Scores As Resilient Mexico Hold Portugal


But Portugal's Ricardo Quaresma scored the opener on 34 minutes before Javier Hernandez equalised with a low header for Mexico. Despite the fact that El Tri had more possession in the draw, Portugal was able to capitalize on Mexico's porous backline with more shots and opportunities in the attack. I want to remind you that Mexico held a control match against the United States national team in the qualification for the World Cup among the countries of North and Central America. "There is no reason to be concerned, we have to think about the next match".

Russian Federation beat New Zealand 2-0 in the other Group A fixture, while Chile beat Cameroon 2-0 in the opening Group B tie.

Portugal's advance in the early stages was soon rewarded by Pepe latching onto a long distance effort from winger Nani, only to be retrospectively ruled offside. As the game continued to play out, however, Portugal showed why they are in fact one of the better countries in the sport, as they looked more and more unsafe on the counter. It was a good result at 2-1 but that's football. Coach Fernando Santos has some interesting decisions to make when it comes to picking his starting 11.

"He is an example for us, the way he works, the way he plays", Patricio said.

Harman, who had begun the day in a four-way tie for the lead, carded a five-under-par 67 which included six birdies and one bogey. Open at Erin Hills Golf Course just might be the one where one of them would break through for his first major championship.


Mexico's squad has three players who have close connections to Portugal.

"Any team having to face Ronaldo is usually considered second-favourites, and Portugal will believe their superstar gives them a huge advantage over the Mexicans in Russian Federation", the report noted.

Prosecutors lodged a complaint at a Spanish court this month in which Ronaldo is accused of defrauding the Spanish treasury of €14.7million in tax owed on image rights.

'We still believe in qualification, we have great possibilities, because there are still two games left.

I don't think they're going to get the president, but they're going to get somebody, and they're going to get him for something.


As man of the match, Ronaldo should have joined the managers in addressing the media; instead he failed to appear. The team said that he couldn't go because he was receiving post-game treatment, although it said it wasn't anything serious.

Southampton defender Cedric Soares looked to have won it for Portugal as his shot towards goal looped off a defender and in for 2-1 in the 86th minute. He drew three defenders to him, then squared to a wide open Quaresma, who juked Guillermo Ochoa before scoring.

Portugal regained the lead in the 86th minute through Cedric Soares' first senior worldwide goal but Moreno's 91st minute header off the post ensured both nations shared the spoils. It was perfectly placed for Chicharito to get a head on the ball, and Mexico's all-time leading scorer converted.
