Awaiting the cross was Cristiano Ronaldo who found a way to beat defender Fedor Kudriashov's and secured a headed goal for Portugal.

AC Milan's new signing Andre Silva should lead Portugal's attack in the David verses Goliath clash in St Petersburg. They'll no doubt be eager to compete against one of the world's best players, but they'll be heading home shortly thereafter. We believe the refereeing will be fair, transparent and the victor will be the one that deserves it.

Things remain tight in Group A before Saturday's final round.

New Zealand, meanwhile, crash out after a heart-breaking defeat, Ryan Thomas hitting the crossbar late on.

New Zealand will be happy with that because the star playmaker has netted 15 goals in his last 9 games for Real Madrid and Portugal.

"Everybody wants to watch Cristiano Ronaldo, even I want to watch Cristiano Ronaldo", the coach said Friday, smiling when asked how Russia's enthusiasm for the world's best player compared to other countries. It certainly won't against New Zealand.

Like he did before the Mexico game, Hudson called on the Kiwis to be "brave" against the European champions.

Although updates will be shown during coverage of Portugal vs New Zealand on ITV 4 from 3.30pm.

But it was bad news for left-back Raphael Guerreiro, who will miss the rest of the Confederations Cup after the Portuguese revealed yesterday that he has been playing with a fractured leg for months.

The 23-year-old Mexico global, who will join the Eagles this summer, appeared to pick up a serious shoulder injury after falling badly during his side's 2-1 win over New Zealand on Wednesday. "I think once we emerge from the group and only then we will begin to study (semi-final) opponents", Santos said. If it's a top team they are fifth because they have lost games they should have won.

In the end, only one achieved their aim, Portugal easing through to the semi-finals of the Confederations Cup while New Zealand's wait for a win at this tournament stretched to a 12th match.

"We certainly did not feel nervous, " he said.

"We need to control the game and show to ourselves that we can compete under such hard circumstances, take a step forward and keep growing as a team so we are capable of playing against any team and any style".

Russian Federation coach Stanislav Cherchesov said he will decide his starting line-up after training with an electric atmosphere expected for the national team's first game at the Kazan Arena. "Obviously, rotation will take place, that I can tell you".
