Confed Cup hosts Russia face decisive match against Mexico

Players from both teams come together as the ugly incident breaks out in the 92nd minute

Portugal and Russian Federation make up the rest of the table, with Cristiano Ronaldo's goal in a 1-0 win seeing the Portuguese go second in the group with four points.

This is the end of the road for two Confederations Cup teams, while the two that advance will be just 180 minutes away from being crowned champions.

"More than 70 trains have already carried over 30,000 fans", Tass news agency quoted Mutko as saying.

Portugal have four points after they conceded an equaliser in stoppage time to draw their opening match 2-2 against Mexico.

This will be the first senior meeting between eighth-ranked Portugal, and New Zealand, who are 95th - sandwiched between Guatemala and Madagascar. "We are all with Portugal", Infantino said.

The African continent is represented by Cup of Nations champions Cameroon in the same group as Chile, Germany and Australia while Portugal are in the other group coming up against the host and third debutant of the tournament Russia, Mexico and New Zealand.

"It's an extraordinary scenario because it gives Mexican football and this group of players the possibility of showing that we have the capacity to take on this responsibility, that we have the talent and the determination to play in this scenario". The striker is now playing his football for Krasnodar and that was his eighth goal in 22 appearances for the national team.

Striker Oribe Peralta hit Mexico's victor in their 2-1 comeback victory over New Zealand on Wednesday to leave them on the verge of the Confederations Cup semi-finals.

In one of the most entertaining matches in the history of the FIFA Confederations Cup, African champions Egypt defeated 2006 World Champions Italy 1-0 on 18 June 2009 with a performance to remember.

"I thought it was freakish really, it was like we had elbowed the player the way it was going on", he said.

"I want to apologise to all the television viewers, I obviously went over the top when I got involved with their assistant coach", he told Mexican media after his side's 2-1 win.

"We can't play a game of this magnitude being afraid of losing", Mexico midfielder Andres Guardado said.

"We have a gameplan that we're going to stick to".

After the draw with Portugal, Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio made eight changes against New Zealand, a plan that initially backfired before his side recovered after the break.

"I would like to apologise to our fans, the way I spoke to one of their assistant coaches was not okay", said Osorio. "That's very important. In all games we go on to the pitch to win, we have that confidence in ourselves".
