Cristiano Ronaldo won't 'sound the alarm' after Portugal draw with Mexico

Juan Antonio Pizzi: 'Alexis Sanchez 100% focused on Chile'

Some sloppy passing play was as exciting as things got in the opening period, before the game was lit up following a Cristiano Ronaldo free-kick.

He would atone for the mistake moments later, bringing Mexico back even. Raul Jiminez sent the ball into the box, and a awful whiff by Portugal defender Raphael Guerrero saw the ball drop to Carlos Vela, who whipped it back into the box for Chicharito who crashed home a header to equalize the score at 1-1.

Ronaldo teed up Ricardo Quaresma to fire Portugal ahead in the first half in Kazan, but the goal was cancelled out before the break by Mexico striker Javier Hernandez's bullet header.

After finishing with an assist in the Confederations Cup Group A game, he was expected to give an interview after the match.

Participants in the 2017 Confederations Cup are hosts Russian Federation, 2014 FIFA World Cup Champions Germany, 2015 Copa America Champions Chile, 2015 AFC Asian Cup Champion Australia, 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup winners Mexico, 2016 UEFA Euro Cup champs Portugal, OFC (Oceania Football Confederation) Nations Cup victors New Zealand and 2017 CAF Africa Cup of Nations Champion Cameroon. We have a great chance of winning the Confederations Cup because there are still two [group] games left. "There's no need to set off any alarms, the team was good".

With Mexico still scrambling at the back, another delivery from the right was flicked into the bottom-left corner by Nani, but the referee - assisted by the VAR - disallowed the goal for offside.


Having bounced back into the box, the ball was eventually diverted home by central defender Pepe, who is also Ronaldo's team-mate at UEFA Champions League winners Real Madrid.

"Hector Moreno's goal handed Mexican football a huge result", he said. Soares pounced on a loose ball front of the Mexico net and ripped a shot from close range that deflected past Mexican keeper Guillermo Ochoa.

He attracted headlines last week after being accused by a Spanish prosecutor of defrauding the country's tax authorities.

Argentine referee Nestor Pitana disallowed a goal by Portugal's Pepe in the 21st minute of the first half after consulting the video assistant referee, reported Efe. Raphael Guerreiro miskicked a cross into the box, allowing Carlos Vela to play the ball back in for Hernandez to score.

"We are calm and thinking about the next game".
