Mexico coach apologises for touchline rant

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Portugal's win took them to the top of their group ahead of Mexico's game against New Zealand moments after.

New Zealand - appearing at their fourth Tournament of Champions - have not won a Confederations Cup game in 11 attempts, and would love to claim the scalp of the European Champions to give them a boost going into key World Cup qualifiers later this year. They are yet to taste victory in 11 Confederations Cup matches.

"In the first half, we played very well, with a lot of personality, " he said. "We knew this was going to be a hard game against a strong team".

Diplomats from Australia and New Zealand visited the National Center for Crisis Management (NCMC) of the Russian Emergencies Ministry (EMERCOM) and highly appreciated the safety of the events of the FIFA Confederation Cup, the press service of ministry said.

A draw for Mexico on Saturday would leave the team with five points and clinch a semifinal berth.

New Zealand coach Anthony Hudson felt his side could return home with plenty to build on despite not being able to register a victory.

Both nations have four points, with group leaders Chile facing Australia on Sunday while Germany meet Cameroon at the same time. "Our guys are very confident so we're not thinking about the future; we're thinking about today". The North American champion had rested several players who started in a 2-2 draw against Portugal, including forward Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez.

By the evening, scripted and predicted by the expectant 56,290 spectators who filled the Krestovsky Stadium, the scarlet shirts of Fernando Santos's Portugal side dominated New Zealand's All Whites, gliding past them without trouble 4-0 and sailing for a pre-determined destination: the semi-finals.

Mexico made eight changes for the second game against New Zealand and will be without defender Carlos Salcedo, while PSV Eindhoven's Hector Moreno is also a doubt.

"We don't want to take things for granted", said Santos. We've seen everything has been tried and it's not one of those where if you deal with Ronaldo then that's it.

Osorio must deliverJuan Carlos Osorio lost cool a bit during Mexico's last match.

"We'll try to counter their strengths and exploit their weaknesses, but we need to be focused".
