A resilient Mexican side came from  behind twice to draw Portugal 2-2 in the 2017 Confederation cup Group A clash in Russia.

Southampton defender Cedric Soares had appeared to win the game for Portugal in the 86th minute, but Hector Moreno headed in in extra time to share the points.

Earlier, Javier Hernandez became Mexico’s record goal scorer when he cancelled out Ricardo Quaresma’s early strike.

Former Manchester United front man Hernandez netted his 47th international goal with a stooping header.

Portugal thought they had an early lead before the video ref ruled out Nani’s flick header, after Pepe had been adjudged off-side by the video ref in the build-up.
