Portugal vs Mexico 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup Third Place

Ronaldo-less Portugal beat Mexico 2-1 for third place at Confed Cup

July 2 at 15:00 in Moscow at the stadium "Opening Arena" in the match for the third place in the Confederations Cup will meet the national teams of Portugal and Mexico.

The midfielder converted a penalty after Pepe had snatched an equaliser in stoppage time to cancel out an own goal from Luis Neto.

The European champions Portugal placed third on their Confed Cup debut although World Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo was already at home to see his newborn twins.

The AC Milan striker was scythed down by Marquez six yards from goal, but although referee Fahad Al Mirdasi awarded the penalty after a VAR consultation, Ochoa dived low to his right to keep out Silva's effort.


The final match between German and Chilean national teams will be held later on Sunday in St. Petersburg. Rui Patricio produced a sharp stop to deny Javier Hernandez, Mexico's all-time leading scorer, from close range on the half hour, but the Portugal keeper was beaten shortly after the break.

In extra time, Miguel Layun gave Portugal a golden opportunity to take the lead with a senseless handball inside his own penalty box.

Manchester United and Barcelona target Nelson Semedo was given his marching orders immediately after the interval.
