Mexico recovers to beat NZ 2-1 in fiery Confed Cup game

Vera Richards | 24 June, 2017, 02:20

Oribe Peralta, enemy of the free people of New Zealand with six goals against the Oceania side, might've saved Juan Carlos Osorio's job with a match-winning goal against the Kiwis in the 72nd minute of El Tri's 2-1 victory.

The European champions struggled to kill off the game despite several chances and could have conceded when Georgy Dzhikiya headed narrowly over in stoppage time. "We weren't European champions by accident", Ronaldo, Portugal's all-time leading scorer, told reporters after taking his worldwide tally to 74 goals.

Goals from Peralta and Raul Jimenez saw Mexico move top of Group A later in the day, above Portugal on goals scored, and knock New Zealand out of the competition.

The 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup Group A match between New Zealand and Portugal will be played at Saint Petersburg Stadium and kicks off at 17:00 CEST on Saturday 24 June 2017.

Mexico scored twice in a busy second-half performance to overcome New Zealand 2-1 and destroy the All Whites dreams of securing their first Confederations Cup victory at the 11th attempt. "Overall I am really proud and I am really disappointed, our players deserved more". "That's unacceptable and why I lost my temper", he said.

"We know how to adapt to different opponents".

The match between hosts Russia and the 2016 UEFA Euro Cup Champions, Portugal, was held at the over 42,700-seat capacity Spartak Stadium, which is a newly-built facility in the Russian capital on Wednesday.

The young girl's death doesn't have to be in vain, as others show their support by advocating for true justice for her murder. Bryan Holland said, "There was no indication of any racial slurs or any type of back and forth other than a verbal argument".

"The first 10 minutes after the break, we gave them too much space and time on the ball".

The homophobic abuse was heard during Mexico's opening game against Portugal in Kazan on Sunday despite Federation Internationale de Football Association warning on the eve of the World Cup warm-up tournament that there would be tighter monitoring of offensive incidents in stadiums.

"We took them to the very limit", Hudson said after his team was eliminated with a game remaining in Group A, "and at times they couldn't handle that".

After Herrera's introduction, Javier Aquino forced New Zealand keeper Stefan Marinovic into a left-handed save, before Giovani dos Santos fired over.

Ryan Thomas attempted a shot from distance, and some good defending from Carlos Salcedo stopped New Zealand from grabbing a shock opener.

Referee Bakary Gassama consulted the video assistant referee before issuing three yellow cards.
