Portugal looks to return to winning ways

Spanish authorities accuse Ronaldo of evading € 14.7 million (Rs 105 crores approx.) in tax and he has been summoned to appear in court next month in Madrid. He found space on the right flank and crept in behind defender Fyodor Kudryashov to head in Guerreiro's lofted cross at the far post.

New AC Milan signing Andre Silva could have added his name to the score sheet shortly after the break when he beat his marker to Cedric Soares' cross from the right, but Akinfeev miraculously kept out the striker's header with a stunning reflex save to keep Russia's hopes alive.

We must also understand that, despite the victory over New Zealand, Russia lags many miles behind Portugal in terms of quality and play and status.

Ronaldo took no questions from the media and did not comment on his legal issues.

Ronaldo has denied any wrongdoing.

"It wasn't the result that we wanted", said Ronaldo.

Santos praised his team for their dedication under pressure to hold on to the lead.

Hudson is encouraged by the way his team troubled Mexico when they met in Nashville last October, hustling them and creating chances in a 2-1 loss.

Russian Federation grew into the game as the minutes ticked by, with one move inches away from resulting in an equaliser when Aleksandr Samedov aimed a cross towards Fyodor Smolov, but he failed to connect by a whisker.

The first goal in the match was scored on 8th minute into the Russian net by Christiano Ronaldo, who is the captain of the Portuguese side and is now considered the world's top footballer.

Ronaldo then had his second chance of the game, making his way into the penalty area from the right-hand side, jinked past Viktor Vasin before his shot was smartly saved by Akinfeev.

One man is happy to talk about Ronaldo - Russia forward Fyodor Smolov.

European champion Portugal goes into Wednesday's game against Russia on the back of a frustrating 2-2 draw with Mexico - Santos suggested Tuesday he may shake up the squad - while the Russians are riding high in Group A after beating New Zealand 2-0 in their opener. "But I would have been much happier if my goal had won us the match and the three points".

"It is very hard to build a team when you have such an individual among you, because everything revolves around him", Smolov said. "We were very close I want us to feel that disappointment because we need to use that to make sure we keep improving".
