Portugal boss says VAR not working well after disallowed goal vs. Mexico

It gave no details on what action could be taken.

It was Portugal that could have taken an early lead when Pepe scored off a free kick, but after VAR replay, the goal was overturned after it was clearly seen that four Portugal players were offsides, including Pepe.

But the centre-half was playing a predictably straight bat when quizzed on the issue ahead of Portugal's Confederations Cup clash with Russian Federation in Moscow.

Just before halftime, Mexico leveled through Chicharito.

The second half started in a similarly cautious vein as the first, but came to life in the latter stages, with defender Cedric giving Portugal the lead on 86 minutes after Mexico failed to clear the danger in their box.

US Open 2017: 5 things we learned
A fourth place finish at the 2014 US Open had given Koepka a taste of what it might be like to challenge for a major. Brooks Koepka was holding steady in buffeting winds, powering to a one-shot lead in the final round of the U.S.

In the second half, Cedric appeared to have secured all three points for Portugal after finally finding a way past an inspired Guillermo Ochoa, but Moreno, who scored seven goals for PSV in the Eredivisie this season as a center half, rose highest on a corner to snatch a dramatic equalizer.

But Portugal's celebrations were premature as Moreno popped up with the equaliser.

"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 still believe in qualification, we have great possibilities, because there are still two games left. We're very happy with this first game". There's no need to sound the alarm.

Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio said his team deserved their point but admitted there was work to be done going forward. Salceio slips, and Ronaldo taps the ball across for Quaresma to cut past the "keeper for an easy finish. 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. At the beginning we couldn't enjoy good control of the ball but then we managed to balance things out and could have won it in the end. The referee sent the decision for video review and after about a long one minute, the goal was disallowed.
