Ronaldo's Portugal held by Mexico at Confederations Cup

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.

Alexis Nunes and Janusz Michallik break down Mexico's draw with Portugal and the use of VAR at the Confederations Cup.

"It wasn't the result that we wanted", he said.

Ronaldo added in his post-match interview: "We are calm and we have to think about the next game".

For his part, Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio was satisfied with his team's performance and particularly the way they kept Portugal's star man Ronaldo quiet - even if he did somewhat strangely still win man of the match for his only two pieces of positive intervention: hitting the crossbar and providing the assist for Ricardo Quaresma's opening goal.

After Sunday's game, Portugal will face hosts Russian Federation in Moscow on Wednesday, while Mexico meet New Zealand in Sochi on the same day.

Meanwhile, Portugal boss Fernando Santos rued the concession of a late equaliser.

One dead in London mosque attack
The Foreign Ministry has confirmed that there have been no reports of Malaysians involved in the Finsbury Park attack in London . Toufik Kacimi, chief executive of the Muslim Welfare House, tells Sky News there is no "need to react with tension".

"If we apply it to perfection we have a very good chance of beating Portugal".

With that, the result now gives both of the teams one point, a fair result.

Mexico equalized less than 10 minutes later with a close-range diving header by Chicharito after Portugal defender Raphael Guerreiro failed to clear a ball crossed into the area.

However, Osorio felt his side would have been hard done by had Moreno not netted from a corner in second-half injury time.

Portugal, who are making their debut at the Confederations Cup, go into the clash with Mexico on the back of a convincing 3-0 World Cup qualifying win away against Latvia.

Ronaldo was also involved in one of the game's biggest talking points, a "goal" that was disallowed after consultation with the Video Assistant Referees.
