Cristiano Ronaldo: Real Madrid and Portugal superstar makes history with goal

Cristiano Ronaldo: Real Madrid and Portugal superstar makes history with goal

Portugal play the hosts in Moscow on Wednesday before completing their group fixtures against New Zealand in Saint Petersburg on June 24.

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

However, the final disposition in the group will be settled after tonight's match between New Zealand and Mexico, who are meeting at Fisht Stadium in the southern resort city of Sochi.

I recall that Mexico during the match had to recoup twice, while conceding the second goal in the 86th minute, did not knock the team out of the rut, and already in extra time on 91 minutes Moreno snatched a draw.

Vaz Pinto added that an explosion in the vicinity may have been caused by flammable containers left behind in the evacuation. An Instituto Nacional de Emergência Médica (INEM) helicopter was dispatched to the scene, TVI reports, as cited by Publico .

Ronaldo, 32, is reportedly furious over a tax probe into the off-shore accounts dealing with his image rights, and has reportedly vowed to leave Spain.

Southampton full-back Cedric Soares has admitted that he is "very happy" to have scored his first Portugal goal against Mexico on Sunday. "This team, when they have to sacrifice themselves, they do that", he said.

He has been accused by Spanish authorities of evading 14.7mn euros ($16.5mn) in tax and has been summoned to appear in court next month in Madrid.

But he was all smiles, escorting a young mascot in a wheelchair out onto the Moscow pitch before netting his first Confederations Cup goal. Fernando Santos, Portugal's coach, whom led them to victory in last year's European Championships understands that they have a tough match ahead of them but is convinced that they will prevail. "We are better talking about our own squad and football, all the rest can be published by other media", Cherchesov said.

Sebastian Rudy and Niklas Sule, who are set to join the record-breaking Bundesliga champions this summer, can also be included. Prior to that, though, the Socceroos shocked Die Mannschaft in 2011, recording a 2-1 win in Moenchengladbach.

Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring in the ninth minute when he rose highest to meet Raphael Guererro's cross from the left.

However, the 18-year-old had a second half to forget as the revitalised Mexicans stormed back, creating a swag of chances.

Hosts Russia could not have made a better start to the FIFA Confederations Cup, following up a spectacular opening ceremony with a 2-0 defeat of New Zealand in the opening match of the tournament. We know we still have lots of opportunities, there are two games remaining and that's why we're calm.

Ronaldo's early goal stunned Russian Federation but they improved dramatically in the second half and did their best to peg back the visitors. "We have four points and we have to congratulate the team".
