No need for alarm bells after draw, says Cristiano Ronaldo

Ronaldo magnificent pass found Quaresma, who is nobody to prevent to score into an empty net.

And such was the impact of the change that his compatriot Fonte admitted Ronaldo's new hairdo took a few of his Portugal teammates aback when he joined up with Fernando Santos' squad in Russian Federation ahead of the Confederations Cup.

Ronaldo scored twice and set up Silva's goal in the team's 3-0 win at Latvia in European World Cup qualifying last week, the team's last match before Sunday's Group A opener against Mexico at Kazan Arena.

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.

'Dear Evan Hansen' and 'Hello Dolly' Win Big at Tony Awards
She had been expected to win, and she started off amusingly by thanking the Tony voters, "many of whom I've actually dated". Best new play went to Oslo , directed by Bartlett Sher, Seattle's former Intiman Theatre artistic director.

Mexico has won five of its last six matches, with a 2-1 home loss to Croatia in a friendly in May.

Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio: "We played the European champions on equal terms, we generated chances but couldn't finish them".

'We still believe in qualification, we have great possibilities, because there are still two games left. Our team practically had the match won and we conceded a goal in the final minutes. I'm not running away from that, and I see myself lifting the trophy with my teammates, but there is a long road ahead, and we'll go from game to game. In Renato Sanches they have one of the brightest young talents in the world game and the young Bayern Munich star came off the bench on Saturday to provide a crucial assist to wrap things up as Portugal beat Serbia 2-0. Minutes after coming on, he almost scored a great headed goal but Ochoa came up with a terrific save.

His 30-metre strike bounced off the bar and Nani hammered the ball home but the referees disallowed the effort for an offside infringement earlier in the move.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, which came amid the final week of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. Sunday's attack is the latest in a series of high-profile assaults in north and and west Africa, targeting locals and tourists.

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

Cristiano Ronaldo has been honored with a large mural with his image in the Russian city of Kazan, but it was painted on the facade of a private building that is only visible to hotel guests where Portugal's team is staying for the Confederations Cup football tournament.

Portugal, meanwhile, kept up their unbeaten run against the Mexicans and took their record to two wins and two defeats in the four matches contested from their first meeting in 1969.

US Open a success for pair of Wisconsin golfers
Asked about the low point, he said it came one night in Scotland when he called his agent and said he wanted to come home. Play the same, too. "I think I was just more aggressive than in the second round", he said about his third-round 82.
