FIFA Confederations Cup: Mexico come from behind to beat New Zealand

FIFA Confederations Cup: Mexico come from behind to beat New Zealand

Cristiano Ronaldo's 74th global goal was enough to earn Portugal victory over hosts Russian Federation in the Confederations Cup.

Striker Oribe Peralta hit Mexico's victor in their 2-1 comeback victory over New Zealand on Wednesday to leave them on the verge of the Confederations Cup semi-finals. Tensions frayed in the game, which ended in an on-pitch brawl requiring a 5-minute review by the video assistant referee, but resulting only in yellow cards for three of the ringleaders.

Mexico took control of the game and Oribe Peralta grabbed the victor from close range after 72 minutes when he swept home another incisive cross from man of the match Aquino. "So I would imagine that's part of (the incident)".

Strangely, Portugal has never won in Moscow, losing all three of its previous games there.

In the second half, Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio switched his tactics to a 3-4-3 formation replacing Osvaldo Alanis for Hector Herrera who plugged in in midfield. Chris Wood took a shot at goal while Mexican defender Carlos Salcedo was on the ground injured, following a tangle with Wood.

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". "Our players and myself were shouting to stop the game, but there was no reaction on their side".

"The game was rough, nearly violent on occasion, so I lost my temper". That's unacceptable and why I lost my temper. "I think he did very well in not answering any questions".

What time does the New Zealand vs Portugal match start?

New Zealand were then presented with another chance to take the lead in the 27th minute through Ben Woods, however Mexico's Alfredo Talavera produced a fine save to deny the striker.

The winger dribbled past one from the left on the touchline and drove into the box where he fed Fabian who in turn fed Raul Jimenez who turned and fired into the roof of the net.

"We deserved more out of the game, thought we were the better team in the first half, thought we created so many chances", Hudson said following the match.
