Mexico Snatches Late 2-2 Draw against Portugal in FIFA Confederations Cup

Mexico Snatches Late 2-2 Draw against Portugal in FIFA Confederations Cup

The 32-year-old has reportedly made the "irreversible decision" to leave Real Madrid amid accusations of tax fraud, but it was Moreno who stole the spotlight in Kazan as he levelled in second-half stoppage time after Cedric Soares appeared to have won the game five minutes from time.

Mexico striker Javier Hernandez cancelled out Quaresma's opener shortly before halftime and the two goals in an exciting last six minutes ensured the teams shared the points.

Fernando Santos says the use of the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) remains confusing after his Portugal side saw an opening goal ruled out against Mexico at the Confederations Cup.

Substitute Cedric Soares looked like being the European champions' hero with his 86th-minute deflected shot, but Moreno's header from a corner spoiled the Southampton defender's celebration of his first global goal to snatch a 2-2 draw for Mexico.

Football fans can watch the Mexico vs. Portugal match live online and see which team starts out the 2018 Confederations Cup tournament on the right foot. Raphael Guerreiro miskicked a cross into the box, allowing Carlos Vela to play the ball back in for Hernandez to score.

Portugal ended 2-2 with Mexico and, perhaps fortunately for FIFA, Chile beat Cameroon 2-0. "I have a pact with the players and we treat these personal matters away from the national team".

In the final 10 minutes, Cedric gave the European champions a late 2-1 lead after his shot deflected into the back of the net. Minutes after coming on, he almost scored a great headed goal but Ochoa came up with a terrific save.

El Tri snatched a 2-2 draw against Portugal in the Confederations Cup and the coach felt it was the right result.

For Portugal, the match will be a chance for Cristiano Ronaldo and company to add another accomplishment to last year's stunning UEFA Euro 2016 title.

'We still believe in qualification, we have great possibilities, because there are still two games left. "Through that we will run less and defend less, so I think my teammates will be fired up to play a good game", ESPN quoted Salcedo as saying.

Mexico head into Sunday's clash having drawn 1-1 with the US in their latest World Cup qualifier, although prior to that they earned comfortable victories over Honduras in a qualifying game and Ireland in a friendly, winning 3-0 and 3-1 respectively.

"In the end the result was fair as Mexico also played well".
