Ronaldo eyes more silver at Confederations Cup

Portugal hoping Ronaldo can continue his good form in Russia

Portugal will play Mexico in the Confederations Cup, Group A soccer match scheduled for Sunda.

However, one veteran team is drawing special attention - Mexico is playing against Portugal on Sunday's much-anticipated game. "In the end the result was fair as Mexico also played well".

Portugal won 2-1 the only time it faced Mexico in an official match, in the group stage of the 2006 World Cup in Germany.

KAZAN, Russia (AP) - Title contenders Portugal and Mexico fought out an entertaining 2-2 draw in the Confederations Cup on Sunday, with each team scoring in the last five minutes.

"It is a little hard for the players", Chile coach Juan Antonio Pizzi said.

The lead wouldn't last long, as Javier Hernandez extended his lead at the top of Mexico's all-time goalscorer list with a typical finish from close range after some good work by Carlos Vela.

Martins wasted an opportunity to make the game safe as he fired narrowly wide on the spin and, just as Portugal thought they had clinched the points, Moreno flicked a corner in off the far post to leave the European champions frustrated.

Portugal were slow to find their feet, taking 20 minutes to get Ronaldo involved with a free-kick struck into the wall, the Madrid man then cannoning a fine left-footed effort off the crossbar when the ball broke his way again following a half-cleared cross. "He is 100 percent focused on this competition and he will be helping us".

Soares' goal had to be confirmed by video review but it eventually stood. Chile is ranked fourth, but lacks the same tradition as Portugal and Mexico and has struggled in South American qualifying.

The 32-year-old Real Madrid striker, who is in Russian Federation as Portugal prepare for their Confederations Cup opener against Mexico, is said to be "outraged" after prosecutors accused him of defrauding the authorities of 14.7million euros (£12.8million).

Mexico's all-time top scorer grabbed his 48th global goal from 93 appearances after some terrible defending by Portugal.

In his next game, Silva scored a hat-trick against the Faroe Islands, when Ronaldo added one goal in another 6-0 victory.

"My conscience is quite clear", Ronaldo said Wednesday as he walked from a Portugal team bus into Lisbon airport on his way to Russian Federation. Portugal has won six of its last seven games. Vela combined with Raul Jimenez, who laid off the ball to an onrushing Hernandez.

Elsewhere for Mexico, there were good displays from Jonathan dos Santos, Hector Herrera and Andres Guardado in midfield, as well as from Miguel Layun, Hector Moreno and Ochoa, who produced a smart save in the 85th minute to deny Andre Silva and keep things level.
