Ronaldo far from Portugal´s only threat, warns Osorio

Portugal hoping Ronaldo can continue his good form in Russia

Ronaldo had earlier teed up Ricardo Quaresma for the opener, with Javier Hernandez's equaliser leading to a tight second half before a hectic finish.

Substitute Cedric Soares looked like being the European champions' hero with his 86th-minute deflected shot, but Moreno's header from a corner spoiled the Southampton defender's celebration of his first global goal to snatch a 2-2 draw for Mexico. "It was a fair result for how the teams played". The other teams are New Zealand, Cameroon, Chile, Australia and Mexico.

"It was not the result we wanted, the team had the game nearly won and we conceded a goal in the last minutes, but that's football", said Ronaldo.

For Mexico's coach Juan Carlos Osorio, he too does not have a lot of injuries to deal with but his captain and Mexico's most experienced player Rafael Marquez could miss the first match because of a back spasm.

Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo attends a training session at the Rubin Training Ground in Kazan, Russia, on Friday, June 16, 2017. The team from CONCACAF had enjoyed nearly 70 percent of possession against the European champions, but hadn't threatened the goal.

Soares' goal had to be confirmed by video review but it eventually stood.

Portugal vs Mexico was always going to be one of the better fixtures in a slightly underwhelming competition, and it has delivered, after 45 minutes anyway.

Silva, who has just moved from FC Porto to AC Milan in a transfer worth almost 40 million euros, has scored seven goals in eight games since his debut with the national team in a friendly against Gibraltar in September.

Silva's first goal with Portugal's main squad was an 86th-minute close-range strike against Andorra, capping a 6-0 rout in which Ronaldo scored four times.

Following their match against the current CONCACAF Gold Cup holders, Portugal are set to play hosts Russian Federation in Moscow on 21 June and New Zealand in Saint Petersburg on 24 June.

"86" - GOAL! Portugal 2-1 Mexico.

"I stand by Ronaldo's character and integrity, both as a man and as an athlete", said Santos, who coached Ronaldo when the player was a teenager in Portugal before leaving to play for Manchester United.

Ronaldo has scored 11 goals in five games with Portugal this season. Portugal has won six of its last seven games.

Carlos Vela and Hernandez again combined after a mistake by Borussia Dortmund defender Raphael Guerriero.

Ochoa made a great diving save in the 85th to keep young Portugal forward Andre Silva from scoring with a header.
