Ronaldo at his best, but Portugal held

The Confederations Cup is considered a warm up for next summer's World Cup.

With Russia taking the first three points of the 2017 Confederations Cup, Portugal and Mexico now meet to see if either side can draw level with the hosts atop Group A. "There are no alarm bells ringing".

Mexico's defender Hector Moreno (15) heads the ball and scores during the 2017 Confederations Cup group A football match between Portugal and Mexico at the Kazan Arena in Kazan on June 18, 2017.

After a cagey opening in front of over 34,000 fans in Kazan, the game sprang to life. "Mexico was better, more aggressive. It was a fair result for how the teams played".

And two goals in the final five minutes signified a insane end to a thrilling game and while Portugal feel robbed, a draw was probably the just result.

Doubts over Ronaldo's future emerged earlier in the week following accusations that the Madrid forward had concealed earnings and defrauded the Spanish tax authorities out of €14.7 million. The team said that he couldn't go because he was receiving post-game treatment, although it said it wasn't anything serious.

The Besiktas winger drew Mexico's goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa and tapped home the opening goal.

Mexico's all-time top scorer grabbed his 48th global goal from 93 appearances after some awful defending by Portugal. Mexico midfielder Carlos Vela got to the ball near the far post and sent it to the middle of the area for Chicharito's goal. Just eight minutes later, Javier Hernandez scored the equalizer for Mexico.

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

When Ronaldo's volley thumped the crossbar, Nani pounced on the rebound, but the video ref spotted that four players were offside.
