Portugal weighs resting Ronaldo for New Zealand game

Mexico and New Zealand Players Clash Confederations Cup: Fight erupts at Mexico v New Zealand – should there have been a red?

Portugal are set to rest Cristiano Ronaldo for Saturday's clash against New Zealand as the Euro 2016 winners look to confirm their passage into next week's Confederations Cup semi-finals. Most likely, for the match against New Zealand, Portugal, too, will the second composition, but also his "selessao" should be enough to win.

"They complicated life for Mexico a lot", Santos acknowledged.

"It's an extraordinary scenario because it gives Mexican football and this group of players the possibility of showing that we have the capacity to take on this responsibility, that we have the talent and the determination to play in this scenario".

Leaders of football teams taking part in the Confederations Cup will be escorted by disabled children in each of the host cities, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kazan and Sochi.

The strategy helped Ronaldo get his 75th worldwide goal and Portugal an ultimately easy 4-0 win at the Confederations Cup on Saturday.

"Everyone is incredibly disappointed in the changing room and we feel we should have got more", said Hudson. It played two very good games.

"Whether we are doing well or not people will always criticise us so we [the players] don't care what they say".

"New Zealanders will try to show their talent". They have other top players.

A clash with the tournament hosts - who need a win to go through to the semi-finals - looks tricky on paper but Osorio thinks it is the ideal game for his players to prove their mental fortitude by claiming the point they need to advance.

Captain and reigning Ballon d'Or holder, Cristiano Ronaldo put Portugal in front with a well struck penalty after 33 minutes.

Portugal's win came at a cost though, as Borussia Dortmund defender Raphael Guerreiro had to be helped off on 65 minutes with a suspected broken leg.

The former Monaco winger had to go off right after with an ankle injury picked up from scoring the goal.

"We have a gameplan that we're going to stick to".

"We're sad about that, and let's see what the exam results tell us".

"Everyone said that Mexico will score 3, 4 or even 5 goals".

Pushes, punches and pokes were traded but more controversy followed afterward when Bakary Gassama, the Gambian referee, reviewed the incident using VAR but chose to issue just a yellow card to the three players involved in the initial stages. "On paper they are certainly better than us".

"We played very well, we wanted to win and get the result in the first half, (but) i t was hard to play better than we played because the grass (on the pitch) was not very good".
