Mexico fully deserved Portugal point, says Osorio

Their advantage would last just eight minutes, as Mexico's record goalscorer Javier Hernandez met a right wing cross with a diving header to pull his team level on the verge of half-time. "There is no reason to be concerned, we have to think about the next match".

Nani's 21st minute goal was disallowed by video assistants because a Portugal player was offside in the build up to the goal. We were at least as good as they were.

After an explosive opening period, the second was a much tamer affair as both teams squandered half chances as the tempo dropped. It was a good result at 2-1 but that's football.

"The team had nearly won and we suffered in the last minute, but this is football".

Thomas lights up Erin Hills
Take it from no less an authority than Justin Thomas , who shot 63 and became the first ever to shoot 9 under par in a U.S. Rickie Fowler is confident of "getting the job done" after resurrecting his hopes of a maiden major at the US Open today.

The result leaves both sides tied for second place in Group A, behind hosts Russian Federation who top the group after beating New Zealand 2-0 on Saturday in St. Petersburg.

Some sloppy passing play was as exciting as things got in the opening period, before the game was lit up following a Cristiano Ronaldo free-kick.

And Ronaldo is now be linked with a shock move away from Real Madrid, with the likes of former club Manchester United said to be extremely interested. Portugal had a first-half goal by Nani disallowed after a video review, when the game was still scoreless.

Mexico fully deserved a share of the spoils against Portugal as a reward for taking the game to the European champions, according to El Tri head coach Juan Carlos Osorio.

Ronaldo wants to leave Real?
Ronaldo has frequently verbally committed himself to Real, and he's made no secret of his love for living in the Spanish capital. The 32-year-old wants to leave Real and has already informed his decision to his current employers.

He said: "It was not the result we wanted, the team had the game nearly won and we conceded a goal in the last minutes, but that is football. In the end the result was fair as Mexico also played well".

Ronaldo carried the ball into the area but was surrounded by three defenders and he passed it to Quaresma, who was free from markers on the far side of the box.

Spanish prosecutors have accused Ronaldo of evading tax of 14.7 million euros (£13m), which he has denied.

Ronaldo obliged after Carlos Salcedo made an error to allow him in on goal before finding Quaresma in acres of space who collected the ball calmly before waltzing past Guillermo Ochoa to score the opener.

Oil slips as data points to fast-growing supply
USA energy companies added oil rigs for a record 22nd week in a row, energy services company Baker Hughes said on Friday. The Energy Information Administration (EIA) forecasts that American output will surpass 10 million bpd next year.

Portugal thought they had snatched victory in the closing stages of the match, as Cedric Soares' deflected effort found the corner of Mexico's net with four minutes of normal time remaining.
