Portugal goal against Mexico annulled after video review

Mexico twice came from behind to draw 2-2 with Portugal on Sunday evening in the Fifa Confederations Cup

Fernando Santos says the use of the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) remains confusing after his Portugal side saw an opening goal ruled out against Mexico at the Confederations Cup.

Their advantage would last just eight minutes, as Mexico's record goalscorer Javier Hernandez met a right wing cross with a diving header to pull his team level on the verge of half-time.

Cedric Soares' 86th-minute shot was deflected in as Portugal appeared to be heading for three points, but Hector Moreno was able to snatch a point for the mexicans in the 91st minute.

Title contenders Portugal and Mexico fought out an entertaining 2-2 draw in the Confederations Cup on Sunday, with each team scoring in the last five minutes.

Hosts Russia could not have made a better start to the FIFA Confederations Cup, following up a spectacular opening ceremony with a 2-0 defeat of New Zealand in the opening match of the tournament.

FIFA is satisfied with the rates of attendance of the Confederations Cup games in Russia, FIFA President Gianni Infantino told TASS on Monday after visiting Australia vs. Germany game (2-3) in Sochi.

Given that Gelson Martins and new Milan signing Andre Silva only came on as subs against Mexico, and Bernardo Silva didn't play at all, Santos has plenty of scope to freshen up his side if needed. "There is no reason to be concerned, we have to think about the next match".

The Washington Redskins Scored a Win in Supreme Court Trademark Case Ruling
The football team had tried to convince the Supreme Court to hear their case instead of The Slants but they were denied. The Supreme Court says Muslim men detained after the September 11 attacks can't sue top US law enforcement officials.

"We were at least as good as they were and they're the current European champion", said the Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio.

Cristiano Ronaldo fails to attend a post-match press conference following Portugal's 2-2 draw with Mexico, as questions continue to mount over his Real Madrid future.

"In the end, the result was fair as Mexico also played well". Raphael Guerreiro miskicked a cross into the box, allowing Carlos Vela to play the ball back in for Hernandez to score.

Mexico has once again been warned by Federation Internationale de Football Association over its' fans goalkeeper chant.

Commenting on the match, FIFA Secretary General Fatma Samoura said tickets for the group game between Portugal and Russian Federation have been sold. The 33-year-old has been a journeyman over his 16-year long career, and is one of the classic cases of footballers who often promise much but fail to deliver eventually.

The FIFA Player of the Year, who had scored 11 goals in seven games coming into Sunday's encounter, was perhaps not as influential as usual but was still named man-of-the-match.

"We wanted to win, of course, but we have to be satisfied with this result against the European champions", Chicharito said.
