Mexico coach apologises for touchline rant

Mexico coach apologises for touchline rant

Ronaldo's eighth-minute header in Moscow gave Portugal their first win in the tournament and victory over New Zealand tomorrow would secure a semi-final spot.

Salcedo was one of only three players to start both Mexico's opening games of the Confederations Cup, but in line with the rules of the competition he can not be replaced.

"There comes a time for each team when an exceptional generation appears and a great team is formed, which we now see with Portugal as an example".

MOSCOW (AP) - Cristiano Ronaldo set aside his legal troubles to score the winning goal for Portugal on Wednesday in a 1-0 victory over hosts Russian Federation in the Confederations Cup.

Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio has accused New Zealand of poor sportsmanship after a nasty end to their Confederations Cup game on Wednesday. "We've all been there", said Rojas. "In the second half we changed things around and had several good chances but which, unfortunately, did not bring us any goals".

"I am proud of what my team did, it's normal to have to suffer at this level, but we deserved to win". But we managed to get our act together for most part of the match.

Portugal has four points after they conceded an equaliser in stoppage time to draw their opening match 2-2 against Mexico.




The New Zealand forward had the best of the early chances when he twice forced Mexico goalkeeper Alfredo Talavera into saves.

The coach added that his team had always been ready to do all required of them, praising the players for their doggedness.

Salcedo, 23, was stretchered off the field in the 33rd minute of the match with the shoulder injury and was taken to hospital. New Zealand's Captain, Chris Wood slotted the ball into the net after he got the ball when he ran into space.

Javier Aquino dribbled in from the left and after an exchange of passes on the edge of the New Zealand box, Jimenez spun to fire high into the net.

El Tri did equalise in the 54th minute, Aquino charging down the left and linking up with Marco Fabian, who in turn found Jimenez, with the striker's shot on the turn taking a slight deflection and proving too hot for Marinovic to handle.

And Peralta hit the victor in the 72nd minute when Aquino pulled the ball back for the 33-year-old to find the net.

Tempers frayed on both sides before the conclusion of a contest filled with incident, a rift caused by Michael Boxall's challenge on Herrera leading to three yellow cards after a VAR review as Mexico ultimately prevailed to move a step closer to the last four.
