Ronaldo attracting the headlines after report he might leave

  • Portugal hoping Ronaldo can continue his good form in Russia

The score was 1-1 at half-time, as Javier Hernandez responded from close range after Ricardo Quaresma had opened the scoring, but the highlight of the first half was the pass from Cristiano Ronaldo that set his long-time worldwide teammate up.

Ronaldo was making the headlines on Friday, two days before Portugal's Confederations Cup debut in Russian Federation, because of a report that said he wants to leave Real Madrid and Spain following allegations that he defrauded the country's tax authorities.

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. "But yes, their transitions are very risky, like any team that plays with that system".

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.

Mexico has won five of its last six matches, with a 2-1 home loss to Croatia in a friendly in May.

Mexico's all-time leading scorer still had time before the end of the half to blaze over from a good position. "We have trained focusing on Portugal, not Cristiano Ronaldo and the team is in good shape".

Secret Service says it doesn't have any Trump tapes
They addressed another letter to Comey, asking for copies of the memos he wrote documenting his conversations with Trump. White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Monday that the president is waiting to announce whether he has any tapes.

Ronaldo played well and made the first goal but did not score. The team from CONCACAF had enjoyed nearly 70 percent of possession against the European champions, but hadn't threatened the goal.

"However, our team is not bad either, and we really think we have a chance of winning". There was later some doubt - and general confusion - over Soares' goal, which ultimately stood. Before Quaresma's goal, Ronaldo hit the bar and Pepe thought he'd netted the opener in the 21st minute, but the video assistant referee (VAR) was disallowed the strike for offside.

Here's how to watch Portugal vs. Mexico online.

The Confederations Cup Group A match between Portugal and Mexico will kick off at 6:00pm local time, 8:30pm IST and 11:00am EST. "The draw is a fair result without doubt", said Portugal coach Fernando Santos, whose side wore black armbands in honour of the victims of a deadly forest fire back home.

But the Portugal captain created another shooting opportunity for Quaresma with 10 minutes remaining and, although Ochoa saved comfortably, they continued to pile late pressure on Mexico. Vela combined with Raul Jimenez, who laid off the ball to an onrushing Hernandez.

Santos has been attempting to phase in a new generation of players but it was a slight surprise to see newly signed AC Milan striker Andre Silva, who has made such a successful start to his worldwide career, limited to a cameo off the bench, during which time he forced Guillermo Ochoa into a fine save.
