Portugal took the lead following an excellent run from Cristiano Ronaldo before he slipped an excellent pass to Ricardo Quaresma who faked out Guillermo Ochoa before slotting the ball into an open net.

"We still believe in qualification, we have great possibilities, because there are still two games left".

'We are calm and we have to think about the next game.

In Kazan hosted the second match of the eighth confederations Cup Portugal national team missed the victory over Mexico.

And on the video referral system (Portugal had a goal ruled out for offside by the video assistant referee): "It's the new rule. We are happy because you can win, lose or draw, but while you play your style, character and football, you feel good".

Mexico controlled possession and spent more time in Portugal's area, but the Euro 2016 champions were a constant threat on the counterattack in front of 34,372 fans at the Kazan Arena.

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

Given that Gelson Martins and new Milan signing Andre Silva only came on as subs against Mexico, and Bernardo Silva didn't play at all, Santos has plenty of scope to freshen up his side if needed. Chile was also made to wait for a review before a goal was confirmed.

He attracted headlines last week after being accused by a Spanish prosecutor of defrauding the country's tax authorities.

The problem Osorio and the players have is that Mexico rarely play top-ranked opposition - and even more rarely in an official competition outside of Europe - accentuating the hype and the need to constantly prove itself when the big games do swing around.

As man of the match, Ronaldo should have joined the managers in addressing the media; instead he failed to appear. The team said that he couldn't go because he was receiving post-game treatment, although it said it wasn't anything serious. He scored the goal, which was largely down to Ronaldo, but his cool head made the chance exceptionally easy.

But the Portugal captain created another shooting opportunity for Quaresma with 10 minutes remaining and, although Ochoa saved comfortably, the Europeans continued to pile late pressure on Mexico.

Mexico equalized eight minutes later through a Javier Javier Hernandez diving header after poor defending by the Portuguese.

Portugal have scored 22 goals in six World Cup qualifiers so the advice is to punt the 3/1 with bet365 on there being over 3.5 goals in the game.

Portugal seemed destined to claim the Group A points, but Mexico rallied again and equalized in added time when Hector Moreno rose highest to head in a corner.
