Mexico's Hector Moreno, 3rd from right, scores his side's second goal during the Confederations Cup, Group A soccer match between Portugal and Mexico, at the Kazan Arena, Russia, Sunday, June 18, 2017.

Portugal had a goal disallowed in the first half after the referee consulted with the video assistant referee - and once more it provoked a storm of controversy.

Cristiano Ronaldo has made his first public remarks since news broke of his desire to leave Real Madrid, though he made sure only to focus on Portugal's latest match against Mexico.

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Raphael Guerreiro failed to deal with a cross into the box and Carlos Vela teed up Hernandez, who met the cross with a diving header.

Cedric Soares' 86th-minute shot was deflected in, but Hector Moreno snatched a point in the 91st minute.

Portugal twice surrendered the lead against Mexico in their Confederations Cup opener on Sunday but the 2-2 draw was no cause for alarm, according to captain Cristiano Ronaldo.

Russian Federation will play against Portugal in Moscow on June 21 and against Mexico - in Kazan on June 24.

"Cristiano Ronaldo is a great player but he's not the only one".

Ronaldo is at the centre of a transfer saga after the player told Real Madrid he wants to quit the club.

And on the video referral system (Portugal had a goal ruled out for offside by the video assistant referee): "It's the new rule".

Ronaldo's free kick hits the wall, from the follow up, Ronaldo lashes a shot against the crossbar, with an excellent save from Ochoa.

Having threatened with a header earlier, Hernandez stole in to head home an equaliser three minutes from the interval.

Mexico weren't down and out though, demonstrating their incredible team spirit to storm back with a stoppage time equaliser, ensuring the two teams took a point each.

"However, our team is not bad either, and we really think we have a chance of winning. There are very strong national teams in this tournament", Silva said.

Portugal upped the tempo and went close in the 79th minute when Quaresma forced Ochoa into a low save from distance, while Dos Santos fired wide at the other end.

Portugal vs Mexico Betting Odds: Portugal 2.20, Draw 3.44 and Mexico 4.00.
