FIFA warns Mexico over discriminatory chants at Confed Cup

This historic event was made possible by the Confederations Cup's sponsor McDonald's, showing that football is open to disabled children and lets them get involved in worldwide competitions.

The tournament is traditionally used as a warm-up for the following year's World Cup and features the home nation, the winners of six continental tournaments and the reigning FIFA World Cup holders.

Soccer fans are watching the games to get a feel for what the 2018 tournament will look like.

Russian Federation will go into the game with none of their players on yellows. Based on the quality of players that will be on display, Portugal should be able to get the win against Russian Federation and in their final group match against New Zealand.

In addition to covering the Confederations Cup, Tencent has won exclusive media rights in China for the 2017 Federation Internationale de Football Association U17 World Cup, hosted by India.

Three players were eventually booked for their involvement in the second flashpoint of the game.

"It was intense, it was competitive", New Zealand coach Anthony Hudson said after the game, which was settled by Oribe Peralta's 72nd-minute strike for Mexico. Portugal won last year's European Cup.

Ronaldo proved the main threat throughout the first half as the hosts offered little going forward, and he tested Akinfeev with a 25th-minute free-kick before forcing the keeper to block with his legs seven minutes later.

The Real Madrid man has told his super agent Jorge Mendes to secure him a return to Manchester United after the Spanish authorities started pressing him for £13m.

Written across the banners were the names of Russian cities of Bryansk, Krasnodar, Tomsk, Vladivostok and many others, meaning that people came all over Russia to see their team playing against famous team from Portugal.

Ronaldo missed a good opportunity on the 62nd minute.

But Hector Moreno's late header denied Portugal the win in their first match in Group A. Meanwhile, Russia may need to beat Mexico on the same day to have any chance of qualifying.

Vladimir Ponmarev played for the Soviet Union team that went to the semifinals of the 1966 World Cup.

Midfielder Marco Rojas, who had a fine game the last time these two teams met in Nashville last October, said the team has dusted themselves off after the opening game and are up for the challenge of trying to contain a world-class team. It eliminated the Oceania champions with one game to spare.
