No need for alarm bells after draw, says Ronaldo

No need for alarm bells after draw, says Ronaldo

More confusion was caused when Argentine referee Nestor Pitana called a review for unclear reasons after defender Cedric Soares's deflected shot in the 86th gave Portugal a 2-1 lead.

The second half had little action until the final 10 minutes when, after goalkeeper Ochoa brilliantly saved Andre Silva's header, Soares' lung-bursting run into the penalty area saw him score with a huge deflection off Hector Herrera. Chile was also made to wait for a review before a goal was confirmed.

"If this is going to happen several times during a game, well it's not very pleasant for the players, " Cameroun coach Hugo Broos said.Count Vidal among the current skeptics. "We were always more risky than them, both in our organised play and on the counter attack".

"We know we didn't play well", he said.

"Those are the rules and if they benefit football, great", Santos said in the news conference afterwards. "Mexico was better, more aggressive".

Mexico's all-time leading scorer still had time before the end of the half to blaze over from a good position.




Portugal boss Fernando Santos admitted on Sunday that the mid-game referral process was "confusing" but Infantino says he has been encouraged by VAR's test on the global worldwide stage with a year to go before the World Cup.

Cristiano Ronaldo struck a free kick from 30 yards into the wall in the 21st minute and when the ball was played back into the box, Ronaldo fired a loose ball onto the crossbar with Pepe eventually putting the ball into the net.

Just eight minutes later, Javier Hernandez scored the equaliser for Mexico. 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.

Four incidents on just the second day of the biggest tournament so far to conduct live trials has created more controversy than Federation Internationale de Football Association expected.One "clear error" might be overturned every four or five games, Federation Internationale de Football Association head of refereeing Massimo Busacca suggested a year ago.

A last-gasp equaliser by Hector Moreno saved the day for them after Cedric seemed to have won the game for the European champions with a goal five minutes from time.

The Europeans could have taken all three points had the Video Assistant Referees (VAR) not controversially disallowed Nani's first-half goal for offside.
