FIFA takes no further action on Mexico-New Zealand clashes

Portugal national team coach Fernando Santos told a news conference in St Petersburg on Friday they are ready and are confident ahead of the match.

Portugal's forward Cristiano Ronaldo (C) vies with Russia's midfielder Alexander Golovin (L) and Russia's defender Dmitriy Kombarov during the 2017 Confederations Cup group A football match between Russian Federation and Portugal at the Spartak Stadium in Moscow on June 21, 2017.

Mexico and New Zealand Players Clash at Fisht Olympic Stadium in Sochi, Russia, June 21.

"We do not worry about what happens in the other group".

Ronaldo might not be the only leading light New Zealand are facing in the coming months. We know what we need to do. New Zealand poured forward in search of a late equalizer with tempers boiling in a mass scuffle. "We are well prepared", he added.

The loss placed the hosts' chances of qualifying for the semifinals in peril, having taken three points from their opening two matches with co-leaders Mexico to play on Saturday. We are the only country that is not the champion of its respective continent. We have a team rule: the maximum trust, the maximum respect and the maximum attitude.

"I am proud of what my team did, it's normal to have to suffer at this level, but we deserved to win".

"Russia are going to be a different proposition, they like to keep the ball and bring it out of defence", said Mexico's midfielder Juergen Damm.

Mexico now advances to play the host of the tournament, Russia, in the group finale on Saturday.

Soft dismissals cost us the match, says de Villiers
Following Sunday's comprehensive eight-wicket loss to India , this is what De Villiers had to say on various issues. Obviously he (de Villiers) is a big player for us and he was looking good and it was a crunch time in the game.

"You take Ronaldo out of the team, you still have some world-class players in there as well". We are aware of that. Ronaldo scored the only goal of the game as he headed his side in front just eight minutes into the match.

They will be looking to not only qualify for the semi-finals in this match but also win the group as they are being pushed hard by Mexico.

EUROPEAN CHAMPIONS Portugal are the defending European champions, after beating France 1-0 in extra time in the final of last year's event, but were hardly dominant in claiming that prize.

Defender Luis Neto said the objective is to finish top of the group.

"I apologize, my words were wrong", Osorio said through a translator of the incident captured on the official broadcast feed. "Overall I am really proud and I am really disappointed, our players deserved more".

WHAT TO EXPECT Even if Ronaldo doesn't start, Portugal should still have more than enough firepower to put the All Whites to bed. If you remove Cristiano, they will still remain a side with a lot of high-quality players.

"I'm a bit disappointed with that but I'll pick myself up and go again". We do not think that we will play only against Ronaldo. "We've changed quite a bit in terms of our line-up, our game, our attitude and the fans see that".

Mixed feelings for the All Whites.

"It's good to look at the fact that we won four games".
