Hector Moreno's injury time goal earned Mexico a 2-2 draw with Portugal in the Confederations Cup.

'It was not the result we wanted, the team had nearly won and we suffered in the last minutes, but this is football, ' said Ronaldo, who is under more scrutiny than usual playing for his country after it emerged on Friday he wants to quit Real Madrid and leave Spain as a result of an investigation into his tax affairs.

"It's a high-profile match", Mexico forward Hirving Lozano said.

'We are calm and we have to think about the next game. "Both teams have great players, it will be a tough match".

KAZAN, Russia (AP) - Cristiano Ronaldo is finally getting an attacking partner he can count on.

Ronaldo, the reigning world player of the year, is the biggest star at the Confederations Cup. Chile is ranked fourth, but lacks the same tradition as Portugal and Mexico and has struggled in South American qualifying. Portugal's triumph at Euro 2016 secured them a place in Russian Federation, where they will be making their Confederations Cup debut against CONCACAF Gold Cup winners Mexico in Group A before facing the hosts and New Zealand. Its decision is due in March whether to approve it for use at the World Cup, as FIFA President Gianni Infantino wants.

"If we apply it to perfection we have a very good chance of beating Portugal".

"He takes this tournament very seriously and is focussed".
