Manchester City's Bernardo Silva scores for Portugal against New Zealand

Manchester City's Bernardo Silva scores for Portugal against New Zealand”

Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo, left, celebrates with Pepe after scoring his side's first goal during the Confederations Cup, Group A soccer match between New Zealand and Portugal, at the St. Petersburg Stadium, Russia, Saturda.

During the early stages of the second half, Portugal were dealt a blow when Pepe picked up a booking which will sideline him for the semi-finals, and they were given a reminder that New Zealand were still active in the game when Wood saw a goalbound effort cleared off the line.

"This is not only our estimation, this is what confirms Federation Internationale de Football Association, as well as those, who participates", he added.

The 22-year-old, who completed his move to the Premier League club from Ligue 1 champions Monaco for a reported fee of £43million in May, hurt his ankle in Portugal's 4-0 Confederations Cup win against New Zealand on Saturday.

Mexico need just a draw to secure qualification What TV channel is it on?

"Three quarters of the squad have never played at this level, and with new players coming through all the time I'm optimistic about the future".

Needing a victory to advance from its hard group, the hosts played well and took the lead with a goal by Alexander Samedov in the first half, but the experienced Mexicans equalized through Nestor Araujo before halftime and secured the victory early in the second with a goal by Hirving Lozano after a mistake by Russian Federation goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev.

The Mexicans lead the group going into the match while next year's World Cup hosts are in third place. We'll try to take the next step ahead.

Mexico finished second in Group A on seven points, behind Portugal on goal difference.

"They complicated life for Mexico a lot, " Santos acknowledged. "It was an important victory for Mexican football". Shots in the sixth and 76th minutes lacked power to test goalkeeper Rui Patricio, and defender Bruno Alves blocked a low shot at the far post in the 59th.

However, as the encounter entered the final quarter, Portugal upped the tempo and Nani should have scored from close range, only to see Marinovic pull off a stunning save to divert the ball for a corner. The goalkeeper apparently wasn't sure if he could use his hands and ended up taking too long to commit to the ball with his feet, allowing Lozano to nip in and head it into the open net. Play had continued for about 30 seconds before the game was stopped for the review.

But the lead lasted just five minutes when on the half hour mark Araujo looped a header over Igor Akinfeev from a freaky free kick awarded for hand ball.
