Portugal goal against Mexico annulled after video review


Cedric Soares restored Portugal's lead on 86 minutes, but Hector Moreno's stoppage-time header salvaged a point for Mexico in their Group A opener.

"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's football", said Ronaldo.

"We need to keep believing in ourselves, we know we have a great chance".

The result leaves both sides tied for second place in Group A, behind hosts Russian Federation who top the group after beating New Zealand 2-0 on Saturday in St. Petersburg.

However, the VAR disallowed the goal for an offside infringement earlier in the move. But with just moments remaining in the encounter, Hector Moreno nodded home the equaliser to earn a hard-fought 2-2 draw for Mexico.

Mexicans have the hump with the Real Madrid star as he was caught mouthing "they are very bad" to Pepe during Sunday's Confederations Cup match.

"What fans have been waiting for over so many years is finally happening". A media circus surrounding their most important player is the last thing required by manager Fernando Santos, who made a point of drawing a line under the topic in his pre-match news conference and did not address it afterward. "My desire is that he continues to be the best in the world and that we can give deliver him more titles". Both teams are going to make debut in this edition of FIFA Confederations Cup.

Ronaldo reportedly wants to leave Real after being accused by Spanish prosecutors of defrauding the authorities of €14.7 million (US$16.5 million, RM17.4 million) in tax through offshore companies.

With speculation about his Real Madrid future capturing headlines around the world, Ronaldo was ushered away from the waiting media with Federation Internationale de Football Association seemingly happy for him to skip the obligatory man of the match news conference.

Ronaldo's brilliant pass between three defenders let Ricardo Quaresma score the first for Portugal.

Ronaldo took 21 minutes to pose his first threat, forcing goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa into a smart save after shooting on the rebound when his free-kick was blocked by the wall. The lead didn't last long, as Chicharito sent a rocket of a header into the goal to tie the game.

"If we win we'll be close to qualifying so it's not the time to sound the alarm".

A dramatic Group A game in Kazan that saw Hector Moreno head in an injury-time victor for Mexico also featured a goal by Nani disallowed for offside on review.
