Cristiano Ronaldo: Real Madrid star reacts to Portugal draw in Confederations Cup

Portugal coach Fernando Santos was visibly angry on the sidelines as a goal in his team's 2-2 Confederations Cup draw against Mexico on Sunday was ruled out by the video assistant referee (VAR).

With this draw, Portugal and Mexico are in second and third place, respectively, in Group A with one point each.

Mexico striker Javier Hernandez cancelled out Quaresma's opener shortly before halftime and the two goals in an exciting last six minutes ensured the teams shared the points.

Southampton defender Cedric Soares had appeared to win the game for Portugal in the 86th minute, but Hector Moreno headed in extra time to share the points.

The result left European champion Portugal and Gold Cup victor Mexico trailing host Russian Federation in Group A. Russian Federation opened the tournament with a 2-0 win over New Zealand on Saturday.

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.

Mexico's all-time top scorer grabbed his 48th worldwide goal from 93 appearances after some terrible defending by Portugal. "We faced the European champions, a team that plays at a very high level, and we played equal to them".

"It wasn't the result that we wanted", he said.

Ronaldo raced through and, although unable to get a shot away himself, picked out Quaresma at the far post, and the Besiktas winger wrong-footed Ochoa and slotted in from close range. The veteran forward used one touch to clear goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa and then easily found the open net.

At the same time, the midfield for Mexico was the better of the two with Jonathan Dos Santos being an animal in the middle of the park and winning every loose ball, while Hector Herrera and Andres Guardado also playing their part in winning the 50/50 challenges and controlling the midfield and maintaining the ball.

It took at least 30 seconds for Vargas's goal in second-half stoppage time to be confirmed after Alexia Sanchez was judged not to have been in an offside position earlier in the move.
