Moreno snatches Confederations Cup draw at death for Mexico

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane & Cristiano Ronaldo

Portugal had to settle for a 2-2 draw in their opening match of the 2017 Confederations Cup, after twice squandering a one goal lead against Mexico.

Another defensive error led to Mexico's equaliser just before the break as Raphael Guerreiro lost sight of Raul Jiminez's cross and Carlos Vela popped the ball back across for Hernandez to head in.

Portugal seemed destined to claim the Group A points, but Mexico rallied again and equalized in added time when Hector Moreno rose highest to head in a corner.

CRISTIANO RONALDO failed to appear for the usual post-match interview after being named man-of-the-match for Portugal in their 2-2 draw with Mexico.

Portugal and Mexico both made changes as the hour-mark approached in a bid to find that killer second goal, with Dos Santos and Andre Silva coming on and as the clock ticked, the game began to get stretched.

ST. PETERSBURG, Russia (AP) - Video review is making FIFA President Gianni Infantino "extremely happy" after being used five times and causing moments of confusion in the first round of Confederations Cup games.

The referee held up the game for the assistant to check the replay, before the goal was cancelled 40 seconds later, as Pepe had been adjudged to be offside.

WWE has finally revealed who attacked Enzo Amore
As seen below, the segment also featured RAW General Manager Kurt Angle as he questioned suspects Big Show and The Revival . The Revival and Big Show were thought to be potential attackers by Angle before Cass admitted he's the attacker.

"I first of all thank the fans for voting for me, but it's not the result that we wanted".

It took at least 30 seconds for Vargas's goal in second-half stoppage time to be confirmed after Alexis Sanchez was judged not to have been in an offside position earlier in the move.

Substitute Cedric Soares looked like being the European champions' hero with his 86th-minute deflected shot, but Moreno's header from a corner spoiled the Southampton defender's celebration of his first global goal.

Despite some controversial incidents using video referee technology at the Confederations Cup, FIFA chief Gianni Infantino is happy with it.

"If we have a free afternoon perhaps one or two of us will go over there", Germany midfielder Joshua Kimmich said.

Chile striker, Vargas, missed a whole host of chances in his side's victory over Cameroon, but became the first player to ever have goals disallowed and awarded by a video official in the same match.

"When Cristiano was able to run, that put Mexico on alert and we should have done that more often", Santos said after the game in his only reference to Portugal's talisman.
