Portugal weighs resting Ronaldo for New Zealand game

Moreno scored the stoppage-time equalizer in Mexico's 2-2 opening draw against European champions Portugal.

All eight teams are two games into the Confederations Cup group stage, but not one team has punched its ticket into the knockout phase just yet.

"Everybody wants to watch Cristiano Ronaldo, even I want to watch Cristiano Ronaldo", the coach said Friday, smiling when asked how Russia's enthusiasm for the current world's best player compared to other countries.

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. Formally notify the "Creamy" about his plans for Cristiano going after performances at the confederations Cup in the Portuguese national team.

Portugal's win came at a cost though, as Borussia Dortmund defender Raphael Guerreiro had to be helped off on 65 minutes with a suspected broken leg.

"On one hand, we have a great deal of responsibility, on the other hand, we are really looking forward to it", Russian Federation coach Stanislav Cherchesov said.

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.

"We managed to change a few things in the second half, and were able to attack".

Portugal put the outcome beyond doubt when Andre Silva darted into the right of the penalty area and crashed the ball into the top corner, with Nani adding the fourth in the final seconds.

No matter where you are on the planet, you can see what channel the New Zealand vs Portugal match is available on here.

Coach Juan Carlos Osorio says it will be the flawless opportunity to show that Mexican soccer has matured and reached a level at which it can succeed under the most hard circumstances.

The 23-year-old came off second-best in an aerial tussle with Kiwi striker Chris Wood in the first half and landed awkwardly.

"It's less than 72 hours to recover, it's not easy", said the coach, who steered his team to the Euro 2016 title over seven games in a 27-day period in France. "We always respect our opponents and we don't underestimate anyone".

"The game against Mexico feels like a final", Cherchesov said.

Javier Aquino dribbled in from the left and after an exchange of passes on the edge of the New Zealand box, Jimenez spun to fire high into the net.

Little under 10 minutes into the second half, Raul Jimenez brought Mexico level and then Orile Peralta grabbed the victor with 18 minutes remaining.
