All Whites improve but still lose to Mexico

All Whites improve but still lose to Mexico

The win moved Portugal top of the table with four points after they conceded an equaliser in stoppage time to draw their opening match 2-2 against Mexico. The second half saw Russian Federation testing the Portugal defence once again but failed to produce the clinical finish to eventually lose the match 1-0.

Ronaldo said he was "very happy with the result", considering that "we played against the home crowd".

Speaking to reporters upon arrival in Sochi on Monday, Coach Osorio made references to the managerial rotations by saying, "We're thinking of giving opportunities to others to once again put out a very fresh and very competitive team".

"I would like to express my honest gratitude to fans, who applauded the team".

Ronaldo is accused by Spanish authorities of having evaded paying 14.7 million euros (US$16.5 million) in taxes and has been summoned to appear in court in Madrid next month.

Now, he's been released by Los Angeles amid an investigation into allegations that he sexually assaulted two women in Louisiana. He said, "It's presently being reviewed", and it is too soon to say whether he will present the evidence to a grand jury.

New Zealand, meanwhile, crash out after a heart-breaking defeat, Ryan Thomas hitting the crossbar late on.

However, the win was bittersweet as Portugal left-back Raphael Guerreiro was hospitalized with a suspected leg fracture.

Guerreiro's towering cross from the left flank hung in the air and found Ronaldo, who rose at the far post to head back across Igor Akinfeev.

Soon after the break, Akinfeev kept Russian Federation in the game with a one-handed reflex save from four metres out to deny Andre Silva's bullet header.

"In the second half we changed things round a bit and we had several good chances but unfortunately they did not produce any goals". "Portugal survived a nervy second half, but got the crucial three points and are now in a strong position for a place in the semi-finals".

UK bows to EU pressure
The EU's chief negotiator, Michel Barnier said: "We are talking about orderly withdrawal first and that makes sense". We will do everything to ensure that - as has been successfully done so far - the 27 states stick together.

Credit to Osorio, though, he did introduce midfield playmaker Hector Herrera at the break.

"I apologize, my words were wrong", Osorio said through a translator of the incident captured on the official broadcast feed.

Hosts Russia started their campaign with a 2-0 win over New Zealand and they will hope to build on that as Portugal look to get their first win of the tournament.

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.
