Ronaldo header gives Portugal 1-0 win over hosts Russia

Soccer fans are watching the games to get a feel for what the 2018 tournament will look like.

Russian Federation will be a very tough team to beat today, as they are very close to qualifying from Group A, after they beat New Zealand in their opening match.

"We are professionals. We are just thinking about doing our best in the Confederations Cup and to go as far as we can in this tournament".

The teams are divided into two groups of four.

"It only matters after three games".

Portugal had been topping the group momentarily after beating host Russian Federation 1-0 earlier in the day, but Mexico are now ahead of the Iberians, despite having the same goal difference (+1), because they have scored four goals while Portugal have scored three. Portugal won last year's European Cup.

June 21, 2017 at 18:00, is expected to meet again in the second round of the worldwide tournament Confederations Cup, in which the stadium "Opening Arena" in Moscow, the Russian national team will play against the national team of Portugal.

The hashtag #RUSPOR was trending around the world when the game started. We have another opportunity now to show the world and bigger countries that we can play and we have a good team.

The Real Madrid striker set up Portugal's opener.

It is the second game of Portugal vs Mexico which ended in a 2-2 draw, that had so much drama and controversies.

Mexico made the All Whites pay with two smartly-taken goals in the second spell, denying what Wood said could have been a famous upset.

The match will take place at the Kazan Arena on June 24.

Hudson is not sure if Osorio, a manager he has huge respect for, will play his strongest side against New Zealand but he is sure whomever comes in will be very capable and continue their free-flowing and attacking brand of football.

"That was one of the key factors and I think we totally outclassed our opponents in the second half".

Mexican media said the chant was also heard at matches at home to Honduras and the USA earlier this month, although Federation Internationale de Football Association could not immediately reached for comment on whether disciplinary proceedings had been opened in those cases.
