Portugal arrive in Kazan ahead of FIFA Confederations Cup debut

Hector Moreno scored a stoppage-time equaliser as Mexico battled back to earn a 2-2 draw against Portugal in their Group A opener at the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup.

The much discussed video assistant referee was is being trialed at the Confederations Cup this summer, but there were only complaints to be heard after Portugal drew 2-2 with Mexico as the system disrupted play and disallowed a goal that really should have stood.

Raphael Guerreiro missed a cross at the far post which gave Carlos Vela the chance to hook the ball back across for Hernandez to power home a diving header.

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.

"It's a dream to be playing with Ronaldo", Silva said ahead of Portugal's Confederation Cup debut against Mexico on Sunday in Kazan.

Portugal's next game is on Wednesday at the Spartak Stadium against Russian Federation, while Mexico will face minnows New Zealand later on the same day at the Fisht Olympic Stadium.

Chile's star player Arturo Vidal fiercely argued with referee Damir Skomina when a goal scored in first-half stoppage time by Eduardo Vargas was overruled nearly one minute later.

This isn't what Mexico would've seen in its dreams, but it's also not the nightmare Mexico could've had with Ronaldo bearing down on the right side of defense against Salcedo and Diego Reyes.

And the star man for Mexico was Jonathan dos Santos, who pulled the strings from the centre of the park for his side, while also pressing hard off the ball.

Portugal won 2-1 the only time it faced Mexico in an official match, in the group stage of the 2006 World Cup in Germany. Despite the fact that the final whistle did not reveal the victor, having recorded in the asset of both teams on 1 point, Mexico still remains the leader of the group, reducing the gap from the nearest pursuer to 3 points. "But we re a great side too, and I m sure we can stop him", striker Raul Jimenez, a Portuguese league and cup double victor with Benfica, told FIFA.com.

Those who want to watch the Mexico vs. Portugal football match live online will have a few options for finding streaming video of the match. "What Mexico did, going directly up against the European champion, is commendable and deserves praise", Osorio said in his news conference after the match. I said we were not the favourites, but that we were candidates to win it. "We are happy because you can win, lose or draw, but while you play your style, character and football, you feel good".
