Youngster Andre Silva becoming Ronaldo's perfect wingman

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

Cedric Soares restored Portugal's lead on 86 minutes, but Hector Moreno's stoppage-time header salvaged a point for Mexico in their Group A opener.

Fernando Santos sent Portugal out in a 4-4-2 formation on the Confederations Cup debut, with talisman and captain Cristiano Ronaldo leading the line alongside Nani but despite their obvious superiority on paper, they struggled to get a hold of the ball in the opening exchanges.

The 32-year-old Real Madrid striker, who is in Russian Federation as Portugal prepare for their Confederations Cup opener against Mexico, is said to be "outraged" after prosecutors accused him of defrauding the authorities of 14.7million euros (£12.8million).

Portugal's William Carvalho, left, and Mexico's Raul Jimenez fight for the ball during the Confederations Cup, Group A soccer match between Portugal and Mexico, at the Kazan Arena, Russia, Sunday, June 18, 2017. I said we were not the favourites, but that we were candidates to win it.

Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio said his team deserved their point but admitted there was work to be done going forward.

In the first half, a Portugal goal was ruled out for offside but it was only when the replays were shown that we saw that there was no infringement for the goal itself, but rather when the initial free kick was taken 15 minutes prior.

Portugal has won six of its last seven games, with the only setback coming in a 3-2 loss against Sweden in a friendly in March.

They will be led by former Barcelona defender Rafael Marquez, still going strong at 38 - while Ronaldo will win his 140th cap in the game, Marquez will be making his 139th worldwide appearance.
