It's very confusing - Santos bemused by VAR after Portugal draw

After a "disappointing" 2-2 draw for the Euro champions against Mexico in their opening game at the ongoing Confederations Cup in Russia, Portugal superstar Cristiano Ronaldo says his side are calm and are focused on the next game.

Moreno made it 2-2 in the 90th minute off a corner for Mexico with a ideal header when the Portuguese thought they had won.

El Tri, winners of the tournament in 1999, were roused from their stupor and responded, with Hernandez aka Chicharito diving to head home Vela's cross three minutes from half-time, after Portugal had made a mess of a routine clearance.

After Portugal's defensive frailties were exposed against Mexico, Santos could inject some pace in midfield by starting with Gelson Martins, Nelson Semedo and Andre Silva.

Ronaldo sprung the offside trap perfectly and drew in a couple of Mexican defenders to him near the edge of the box before deftly setting up Ricardo Quaresman for a simple finish in the 34th minute.

The tournament is traditionally used as a warm-up for the following year's World Cup and features the home nation, the winners of six continental tournaments and the reigning FIFA World Cup holders.

"First and foremost the match versus Portugal will be against the European champions, against a team with a high concentration of elite level players, aside from Ronaldo", said Smolov, speaking at the press conference at the Spartak Stadium.

Kroeger went on to comment on the fact that Slipknot , Taylor's other band, look like a bunch of dummies in masks. He responded to Taylor , who allegedly described writing a hit song as "easy", saying , "Well, show me".


Ronaldo obliged after Carlos Salcedo made an error to allow him in on goal before finding Quaresma in acres of space who collected the ball calmly before waltzing past Guillermo Ochoa to score the opener.

What a ball by Cristiano to find Quaresma for tap in. 1-0.

Nani's 21st minute goal was disallowed by video assistants because a Portugal player was offside in the build up to the goal. Upon emerging for the warm-up he greeted a particularly enthusiastic section of the Kazan Arena crowd with a cursory nod of the head; there was serious work to be done and, after a sloppy start by Portugal, he eventually asserted a measure of influence.

Portugal players will wear black armbands against Mexico in the today to honour compatriots that passed away from forrest fires. RIP.
