Mexico score incredible last minute equalizer against Portugal

A stoppage-time header by Hector Moreno saw Mexico equalise to make it 2-2 after Portugal thought they had won it with Cedric Soares' deflected shot four minutes from time.

Mexico twice came from behind to draw 2 -2 with Portugal on Sunday evening in the Fifa Confederations Cup.

The Portuguese are also three points away from pace-setters Switzerland in FIFA World Cup Qualifying, and, with only one team securing an automatic place from each European qualification group, the European Champions are some way from guaranteeing their spot at the finals.

Cristiano Ronaldo has made his first public remarks since news broke of his desire to leave Real Madrid, though he made sure only to focus on Portugal's latest match against Mexico.

Portugal regained the lead in the 86th minute through Cedric Soares' first senior worldwide goal but Moreno's 91st minute header off the post ensured both nations shared the spoils. "But we are not anxious, there are two games left, we still have chances".

"However, our team is not bad either, and we really think we have a chance of winning".

Portugal take on tournament hosts Russian Federation in their next group-stage outing on Wednesday afternoon, before then facing outsiders New Zealand three days later.

Video review seems to have plenty to prove to football's rule-making panel, known as IFAB.

Portugal and Chile both had goals disallowed for offside. "We are calm and thinking about the next game". "We played against a team at a high level".

Mexico weren't safe yet as Portugal continued to press, Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes striking the ball back across the box, his effort dropping into the corner.

"We played a team that has very good, technical players", said Portugal coach Fernando Santos.

For my Portugal v Mexico tips, I am backing Portugal to win at a best price of 6/5.

Javier Hernandez is the only player at #ConfedCup 2017 to have scored in a previous edition (scoring three in 2013). "It was a fair result for how the teams played".

Predictions: An exciting game with loads of goals to end in a 3-2 win for Portugal.

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.

Video replays were again consulted, but no change was made to the initial decision to award the goal. Cristiano Ronaldo and "Chicharito" Javier Hernandez were the stars of the first half, but the second half's two goals were scored by a pair of defenders.
