Hector Moreno, Mexico Snatch Late Draw vs. Portugal at 2017 Confederations Cup

Ricardo Quaresma opened the scoring for Portugal in the 34th minute on a magical assist from Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo.

"We are calm and we have to think about the next game".

"We could have killed off the match but it didn't happen".

Soares' goal had to be confirmed by video review but it eventually stood. I want to remind you that Mexico held a control match against the U.S. national team in the qualification for the World Cup among the countries of North and Central America. It was a good result at 2-1 but that's football.
