Chile out to curb Portugal goal-king Ronaldo

New Zealand v Portugal Pepe urges Selecao to be faithful to their style New Zealand v Portugal Pepe urges Selecao to be faithful to their style

Centre-back Pepe is suspended for Portugal, while Bernardo Silva was forced to sit out a training session on Monday due to an ankle knock sustained against New Zealand.

Ronaldo had already headed against the crossbar before firing Portugal ahead after Danilo went tumbling under a challenge from two defenders and the referee pointed to the spot without asking for a video replay.

Chile coach Juan Antonio Pizzi talks with Arturo Vidal during the Confederations Cup, Group B soccer match between Chile and Australia, at the Spartak Stadium in Moscow, Sunday, June 25, 2017.

The last time the pair met on the pitch, Vidal was sent off for Bayern as Ronaldo fired Real Madrid into the semi-finals of the Champions League in controversial circumstances - at least one of his goals appearing to be clearly offside. On Saturday, however, he let himself down with an unprovoked and unnecessary foul that earned him a yellow card and will keep him out of the semifinal.

Stefan Marinovic was kept busy against Portugal at the Confederations Cup. You can check who's showing the game where you are, and if they have an online service or iOS or Android app to watch it on.

Now the path to qualifying for the World Cup in November looks no easier.

"Hopefully we can come back next year".

New Zealand boss Anthony Hudson felt the final result was harsh on his players.

He said: "Our style of play is very demanding, the players have to put in a great effort". He has been a regular with the national team for more than a decade.

Ronaldo has netted four times in as many appearances for Portugal over recent weeks.

Portugal swiftly doubled their lead when Eliseu's risky low cross from the left was forced home by Silva, although there was brief concern for the new Manchester City signing as he landed awkwardly on his ankle.

Forward Andre Silva, 21, is the team's leading scorer this season after Ronaldo, and recently was praised by the Real Madrid player.

Santos fielded an attacking line-up packed with experience and resisted the temptation to rest Ronaldo with Portugal still requiring a point to qualify and vying with Mexico and Russian Federation for top spot.
