Portugal boss says VAR not working well after disallowed goal vs. Mexico

Portugal boss says VAR not working well after disallowed goal vs. Mexico

Hector Moreno headed a late equaliser for Mexico as they drew 2-2 with Portugal in their Confederations Cup opener.

Pepe had a goal disallowed for offside after a referral to the video assistant referees before Ricardo Quaresma sold the keeper a dummy and slotted in.

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.

Portugal full-back Cedric Soares' 88th-minute goal seemed to have given the Iberians a win but their Central American opponents made them pay for switching off at a corner when Mexico defender Hector Moreno rose high to head home a dramatic equaliser.

Having successfully recovered from an injury which kept him under doubt for the Latvia qualifier, Besiktas star was rewarded with a starting place in Portugal's Confederations Cup opener against Mexico.

The result left European champion Portugal and Gold Cup victor Mexico trailing host Russian Federation in Group A. Russian Federation opened the tournament with a 2-0 win over New Zealand on Saturday.

In the second match of group A met the main favourites to reach the semi-finals - the reigning Champions, the Portuguese led by Cristiano Ronaldo met with a strong team of Mexico, which many are predicting the finals. "But we have to be careful because I don't think people understand this new rule really well".

"We played a team that has very good, technical players", said Portugsl coach Fernando Santos. His goal in the 91st minute was also referred to the video assistant referees - presumably to check on another possible offside - but it stood. Pace, skill and attacking flair are the traditional hallmarks of Mexican football.

Philip Hammond: Conservatives 'not deaf' to message at ballot box
During an awkward campaign appearance with Mrs May, the PM refused to say Mr Hammond would remain in post as he stood by her side. He also said the government "heard a message" in the election that people were "weary" of spending cuts.

Cristiano Ronaldo has now scored or assisted in each of his last seven games for Portugal. "Mexico was better, more aggressive".

"If we win, we'll be close to qualifying, so now is not the time to sound the alarm".

The European champs soon took the lead though in sublime fashion after 34 minutes.

Ronaldo's backheel then saw Quaresma fire narrowly wide but another defensive error allowed Mexico to draw level three minutes before the break. Yet for all their probing, Mexico struggled to find openings against a resolute Portugal back line early on.
