Portugal Beat Mexico in Match for Third Place in FIFA Confederations Cup


PORTUGAL clinched third place in at the Confederations Cup in a dramatic win over Mexico in Moscow. Luis Neto bundled into his own net to hand Mexico a 54th-minute lead, but Pepe stabbed home a stoppage-time equaliser to force an extra 30 minutes at Spartak Stadium.

Mexicans in the semi-finals lost the German national team 1: 4, interrupting their series of 7 unbeaten games.

Veteran Rafael Marquez was punished for a poor challenge by a VAR referral but Andre Silva, who was handed the responsibility with Cristiano Ronaldo having been allowed to travel home to be with his new twins, saw his effort brilliantly saved by Guillermo Ochoa.

The teams of Portugal and Mexico met at this tournament on June 18 and played a 2: 2 draw.

Yesterday, Bernardo was limited to gym practice as a precaution and today he returned to training, but Portugal coach Fernando Santos is still uncertain if he will be able to face Mexico on Sunday.

Portugal fell in a penalty shootout after a 0-0 draw, and will be without its star player for the third-place match. Shortly before the end of the second time, Pepe scored a goal for Portugal thus prolonging the match for two extra times.

Semedo was then sent off on 106 minutes after picking up a second yellow card, but Mexico's numerical advantage was swiftly wiped out when Jimenez received his marching orders.
