Ronaldo header gives Portugal 1-0 win over hosts Russia


This Wednesday, June 21, 2017 (8:00 AM Pacific) Russia will host Portugal at the Otkrytiye Arena in Moscow, Russia for a group stage match in the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup.

The on-pitch fracas involved so many players that the referee had to go to touchline to assess the skirmishes on a screen, rather than just relying on video replay assistants.

With that, Ronaldo smiled, stood up from his seat and left the room. "We have four points and we have to congratulate the team".

Cristiano Ronaldo has been honored with a large mural with his image in the Russian city of Kazan, but it was painted on the facade of a private building that is only visible to hotel guests where Portugal's team is staying for the Confederations Cup football tournament.

"We played against a team playing at home, with a home crowd, a team that pressured us but we were better", Ronaldo said.

SOCHI, Russia (AP) - Mexico asserted its superiority in the second half against New Zealand to avoid a Confederations Cup embarrassment on Wednesday, coming from behind to win a fiery Group A encounter 2-1 that ended in a brawl.

The Russian captain and custodian, Igor Akinfeev, on his 100th appearance was enormous between the sticks and made a sensational stop to deny Andre Silva in the second-half to keep his side in the game. "We managed to change a few things in the second half, and were able to attack".

"We know how to adapt to different opponents".

New Zealand were not to be denied, though, taking the lead three minutes before the break.

"We are professionals", Pepe said when asked whether the Ronaldo situation had become a distraction. The European champions struggled to kill off the game despite several chances and could have conceded when Georgy Dzhikiya headed narrowly over in stoppage time.

After Herrera's introduction, Javier Aquino forced New Zealand keeper Stefan Marinovic into a left-handed save, before Giovani dos Santos fired over.

But Raul Jimenez's third goal in his last four internationals brought Osorio's men back on level terms after the break and Peralta's victor ensured El Tri secured victory despite star striker Javier Hernandez remaining on the substitutes' bench.

And Peralta hit the victor in the 72nd minute when Aquino pulled the ball back for the 33-year-old to find the net.
