Mexico vs New Zealand

New Zealand's best chance felt to Tommy Smith, whose header was cleared off the line by Yury Zhirkov but by then the damage was already done, and the All Whites will need to dramatically improve when they face Mexico in their next game, on Wednesday.

KAZAN, Russia (AP) - Portugal had a first-half goal against Mexico chalked off in the Confederations Cup after the action was reviewed on video.

Host Russia top the group with three points after defeating New Zealand 2-0 in the opening match on Saturday.

Cristiano Ronaldo brushed off speculation about his Real Madrid future, although Portugal conceded a late equaliser in a 2-2 draw with Mexico at the Confederations Cup on Sunday.

Cedric saved well from Cedric and tipped a deflection from defender Carlos Salcedo over the bar before Portugal finally took a deserved lead.

Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio is confident his side can contain New Zealand's "All Blacks spirit" as El Tri look to move a step closer to the semi-finals of the Confederations Cup with victory in Sochi. "But we are not anxious, there are two games left, we still have chances".

"We were unlucky against them before so we'll be going for three points".

GOP budget deadlock imperils Trump hopes for tax overhaul
Handel, the former Georgia secretary of state, previously ran unsuccessfully for governor in 2010 and for the Senate in 2014. Ossoff's team built an extensive operation, with a much more robust field operation than Handel's.

Ronaldo played well and made the first goal but did not score.

In the first half, a Portugal goal was ruled out for offside but it was only when the replays were shown that we saw that there was no infringement for the goal itself, but rather when the initial free kick was taken 15 minutes prior.

Mexico drew its opening group game 2-0 against Portugal last Sunday in Kazan.

Portugal boss Fernando Santos admitted on Sunday that the mid-game referral process was "confusing" but Infantino says he has been encouraged by VAR's test on the global worldwide stage with a year to go before the World Cup.

Sergio Ramos apparently called Cristiano Ronaldo to find out whether rumours the superstar wants to leave Real Madrid were true.

Mexican players a year ago launched their own campaign against homophobic slurs during matches.

Reigning World Cup winners Germany and Australia make up Group B, and they go head-to-head today.
