Portugal vs Mexico Confederation Cup group stage match end in draw

A 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup group stage match between Portugal and Mexico ended in a 2-2 draw. The game was played in the Russian city of Kazan on Sunday.

The goals were scored by Portugal’s Ricardo Quaresma (34th minute) and Cedric Soares (86th minute), and Mexico’s Javier Hernandez (42nd minute) and Hector Moreno (90th minute).

Portuguese defender Pepe scored a goal in the 22nd minute of the game but it was ruled out due to the use of the video assistant referee (VAR) system. The goal was disallowed for offside on review. It was the first use of the VAR system at the Confederations Cup.

Group A also includes Russia and New Zealand which played their game on Saturday. Russia defeated New Zealand 2-0.
