It was a goal that meant more than a point.

Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo reacts during the Confederations Cup, Group A soccer match between Portugal and Mexico, at the Kazan Arena, Russia, Sunday, June 18, 2017.

A loss here wouldn't have been a disaster.

The FIFA Confederations Cup serves are a curtain raiser to the FIFA Wold Cup to be hosted by Russian Federation in 2018.The Confederations Cup sees top sides from every continent square off in an eight-team tournament.

At the beginning we couldn't enjoy good control of the ball but then we managed to balance things out and could have won it in the end, ' he said.

El Tri controlled possession without really challenging a resolute Portuguese defense anchored by Pepe and Jose Fonte in the back and with William Carvalho providing the midfield cover.

Silva's first goal with Portugal's main squad was an 86th-minute close-range strike against Andorra, capping a 6-0 rout in which Ronaldo scored four times.

However, Portugal, and Ronaldo, were not to be denied.

If the game was a test of those factors, Mexico passed. "We nearly had the game won but we suffered in the final minutes".

He said: "It was not the result we wanted, the team had the game nearly won and we conceded a goal in the last minutes, but that is football".

Late dramaJonathan Dos Santos was at his best again for Mexico.

"[People] always look to demerit the opponent and not praise Mexico", said Guardado.

"We still need to work on our finishing, we're not efficient enough in the final third of the pitch".

The Champions of Europe met their counterparts from North America on Sunday in Kazan as Portugal faced off against Mexico. "I'm happy to play with my captain". Mexico certainly deserved a point against Portugal.

With that, the result now gives both of the teams one point, a fair result. The team from CONCACAF had enjoyed nearly 70 percent of possession against the European champions, but hadn't threatened the goal.

In all, being used for the first time, the VAR process was relatively quick, seamless, and accurate. "We played against a team at a high level".

Together, the young Silva and the veteran Ronaldo have scored 18 goals since they started playing alongside each other following Euros 2016. Portugal has many good players along with Ronaldo. We have to win, because if we win the next game we will be one step away from qualifying.
