Portugal regained the lead in the 86th minute through Cedric Soares' first senior worldwide goal but Moreno's 91st minute header off the post ensured both nations shared the spoils.

Portugal took the lead in the first half through Ricardo Quaresma, who finished off after a delightful assist from Cristiano Ronaldo.

Chile's star player Arturo Vidal fiercely argued with referee Damir Skomina when a goal scored in first-half stoppage time by Eduardo Vargas was overruled nearly one minute later.

As it stands, Russian Federation sits at the top of the group, followed by Portugal and Mexico while New Zealand, who were thumped by the hosts 2-0 on Saturday, are bottom.

Those who want to watch the Mexico vs. Portugal football match live online will have a few options for finding streaming video of the match.

"It is a little hard for the players", Chile coach Juan Antonio Pizzi said.

Soares scored late with a right-foot shot from inside the area after Mexico midfielder Hector Herrera gave the ball away, and Moreno's equalizer came with a firm header from close range after a corner kick one minute into injury time.

Arturo Vidal and Eduardo Vargas fired Chile to a 2-0 win over Cameroon, but the game was once again dominated by the video assistant system which is being trialed at the Confederations Cup.

Ronaldo's backheel then saw Quaresma fire narrowly wide but another defensive error allowed Mexico to draw level three minutes before the break. For Portugal, the match will be a chance for Cristiano Ronaldo and company to add another accomplishment to last year's stunning UEFA Euro 2016 title. Hernandez scores - A bad error from Raphael gives Vela the ball on the right-hand side, in the box. However, the VAR disallowed the goal for an offside infringement earlier in the move. Both teams are in the contested Group A of the competition and should deliver an exciting affair.

The decision was correct, as Portugal had several players in offside positions.

Former New York Red Bulls Head Coach Juan Carlos Osorio has enjoyed great success with Mexico in his two years in charge of the national team. "We are calm and thinking about the next game".

Mexico for much of the match took possession and control and was the team that took the game to Portugal from the forefront. This tournament will be hard for them to win with a lot of talent in the likes of Germany here but still I will expect them to compete in this game.
