Hector Moreno snatched a stoppage-time equaliser as Mexico denied Portugal a late victory in their opening Confederations Cup match.

Portugal is making its first appearance in the Confederations Cup, the eight-nation competition played by continental champions plus host Russian Federation and World Cup victor Germany. The Confederations Cup is considered a warm up for next summer's World Cup.

"In the end it was a well-deserved result after how we played today", Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio said. I'm not running away from that, and I see myself lifting the trophy with my teammates, but there is a long road ahead, and we'll go from game to game. "We faced the European champions, a team that plays at a very high level, and we played equal to them". We've prepared thoroughly and we just have to expect that the players play properly and execute the game plan.

Portugal coach Fernando Santos said it was not the performance he expected from his team. Mexico dominated possession, with 61 percent over the 90 minutes, but it was Portuguese who looked to have more punch. We'll need players to cover both sides and we'll try to control the ball as much as possible. After turning around and with his options seeming to have run out, Ronaldo slipped the ball past a sleeping Mexico defense to gift Quaresma the opener.

A source claims Ronaldo "feels great indignation" with all the conjecture about his tax affairs and a sense of "injustice" at the allegations - which he contests - and has made a decision to leave Spain. "But yes, their transitions are very risky, like any team that plays with that system".

The 32-year-old was obliged to appear in front of the cameras after being named as FIFA's official man of the match at the Kazan Arena in Russian Federation.

Having threatened with a header earlier, Hernandez stole in to head home an equaliser three minutes from the interval. The veteran forward used one touch to clear goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa and then easily found the open net. "They are the European champions and I would say that, right now, they're one of the best teams in the world", he told a media conference.

Raphael Guerreiro missed a cross at the far post which gave Carlos Vela the chance to hook the ball back across for Hernandez to power home a diving header.

But referee Nestor Pitana reviewed Portugal's goal and the video assistant referee (VAR) ruled it out for offside.

Santos has been attempting to phase in a new generation of players but it was a slight surprise to see newly signed AC Milan striker Andre Silva, who has made such a successful start to his global career, limited to a cameo off the bench, during which time he forced Guillermo Ochoa into a fine save.
