Cristiano Ronaldo closes in on Puskas' record

Ryan Thomas tries to evade a couple of Portuguese defenders

"World-class players have that ability", Pizzi said.

Portugal drew their first game 2-2 against Mexico, although wins over Russian Federation and New Zealand saw them top Group A. Ronaldo has netted in both of their victories so far.

It is a bit surprising to see Vidal making such an offensive comment on Ronaldo and he now has to hope that Chile does not face the wrath of the superstar footballer on the pitch tomorrow.

Loew, in his 150th match in charge of Germany, maintained his impressive record of reaching the semifinals of every tournament over the last decade.

England manager Gareth Southgate and assistant Steve Holland have visited Russian Federation during the Confederations Cup to assess the logistics in each of the four cities - Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Kazan and Sochi - being used as venues for the competition.

Their path to this year's showpiece in St Petersburg has been complicated by their failure to top the group but defender Gonzalo Jara does not believe meeting Group A runners-up Mexico would have been any easier.

Bayern Munich midfielder Renato Sanches, 19, didn't make it to the Confederations Cup squad but is also expected to be part of Portugal's future.

"I think the four best teams are here so they will be some good semi-finals".

Israel strikes Syrian positions after fire toward it
The IDF reportedly stressed that it views Damascus as " ultimately responsible for what is happening in its territory ". The last incident came in April, after which the IDF said it struck targets inside Syria.

Santos also confirmed that full-back Raphael Guerreiro has not recovered from the ankle blow he sustained in the opening draw with Mexico, meaning he will also sit out the match.

After steering Portugal to the Euro 2016 title in Paris a year ago, he will want to claim a second worldwide title in Sunday's Confederations Cup final in St Petersburg, against Mexico or Germany who meet in the other semi-final.

Portugal's defence has been further damaged by the suspension to Pepe, with the experienced centre-back serving a one-game ban for collecting two yellow cards in the group stage. - Cristiano Ronaldo has scored twice in this year's tournament - no other player has scored more often.

Stefan Marinovic had a torrid time against the powerful Portugal line-up.

Chile's biggest strength lie in their two most famous players, Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal.

The two-time Copa America champions will take on current European champions Portugal in the semi-finals at the Kazan Arena here on Wednesday.

Lionel Messi and Argentina or Confederations Cup semifinalist Chile are possible opponents. - Three of Chile's four goals at these finals have come after half-time.
